STADSKANAAL, The Netherlands, October 7, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- STOPAQ will present its new Subsea Compound System in a spectacular live demonstration at Adipec 2010. STOPAQ Specialists will demonstrate the newest revolutionary underwater anti-corrosion techniques in applying the self-healing, visco-elastic corrosion-prevention systems at the STOPAQ Outdoor Pavilion. The Pavilion features a purpose-built basin, filled with 80.000 liters of water.

The Stopaq Subsea Compound System can be applied fully underwater and offers a long-term (30 years) guarantee against the harsh consequences of subsea conditions. This specialized, non-toxic subsea system is environmentally friendly and easy to apply requiring only two divers at a time.

The Stopaq Subsea Compound System allows careful and timely planning of projects. Operations can be carried out irrespective of weather constraints, such as wind or rain. High-pressure water cleaning at 200-300 bar is sufficient to obtain the required level of cleanliness ST2-3.

The Stopaq Subsea System is presently being applied in a major project in the Port of Rotterdam. Commissioned by Ballast Nedam and the Maasvlakte Oil Terminal (MOT), STOPAQ and SMIT Subsea Europe have been tasked to renew and protect 133 steel jetty piles. This project has already attracted many visits from companies and port authorities interested to witness the new system in operation.
