We have used a Canadian corrosion control coating product for over
four years now and it has shown itself to be very effective.  It has
shown itself in our tests to be 100% effective in preventing
corrosion on iron and steel in adverse environments for years with a
single thin coating.  The coating is removable.  The trade name is
Ship-2-Shore and it has had primary use in corrosion prevention on
ships in North American salt water environments. See
<URL:> for full product information.

The website contains a couple of examples of our application of the
product in preventing corrosion on outdoor museum collection steel
and iron macroartifacts.  We will be using the product extensively
this summer as a preservation coating on historic oil well rigs and
related oil field equipment following a successful trial application
several years ago.
