Military Armoured Vehicles
Date: September 2020
Customer: A UK Brigade Formation
Location: Various Military Sites
A UK Army Brigade had a number of Armoured Vehicles located at various UK sites, that would not be getting used for up to two years, and they were looking for a way of reducing the maintenance burden.
1) The Task
The Brigade Headquarters approached HITEK-nology Solutions Ltd (HSL) to provide a solution that would result in equipment being protected from corrosion, whilst at the same time allowing the vehicles to be stored outside.
2) Product Used
- VpCI 126 HP UV Shrink Film
- VpCI 132 Foam
- ElectriCorr VpCI 239 Aerosol
- CorrShield 369 Aerosol
3) The Solution
All exposed moving parts such as door hinges, deck bolts, hatch handles and rams etc. were treated with CorrShield 369 Aerosol.
All electrical connections and earth leads etc. were treated with ElectriCorr VpCI 239.
VpCI 132 foam pads were then placed in and around the vehicle.
The vehicles were then placed onto VpCI 126 HP UV Shrink Film, which was then encapsulated around the vehicles, sealed and heat shrunk into place
This has resulted in HSL providing a low cost solution for protecting and storage of the vehicles outside for up to two years
Note: VpCI 126 HP UV Shrink film (blue film) was chosen as the outer wrap as protection was only required for up to two years.
