Syntho-Shield™ is an innovative system that offers exceptional mechanical and impact strength for corrosion protection coating applications whether they are underwater, underground or aboveground. It is uniquely designed as an effective solution to corrosion, insulation, and waterproofing problems.

Syntho-Shield™ is made up of a petrolatum primer/tape system undercoating for long-term corrosion protection, Syntho-Glass® XT for mechanical protection, and Syntho-Glass® SPF as a final mechanical and UV protection barrier. The petrolatum tape undercoating is made up of a non-woven synthetic fabric carrier that is fully impregnated with a neutral compound based on saturated petrolatum and inert siliceous fillers. The tapes are designed to provide long-term corrosion protection for pipes, flanges, valves, and related surfaces. Syntho-Glass® XT, a fiberglass cloth impregnated with a water activated resin, is used as a protective outer wrap. Syntho Glass SPF is a UV-stable fiberglass cloth impregnated with a unique water-activated resin as a final, outer wrapping for additional mechanical and UV protection.
