Friday, December 13, 2013

Since 2004 Shield Technologies Corporation of Eagan, Minnesota has provided more than 60,000 Envelop Protective Covers to all branches of the U.S. military. Corrosion prevention cover technology Envelop Protective Covers are used to protect a variety of high value U.S. military equipment to include topside naval weapons, Army ground combat vehicles and both fixed and rotary wing aviation assets.

The FY2014 National Defense Authorization Act includes language encouraging the enhanced use of anticorrosion cover systems so more components within DOD can realize the cost savings and readiness benefits of this technology.

“Corrosion remains the largest preventable cost to the U.S. Military, a cost which exceeds $23 billion per year,” stated the FY14 NDAA Report. “Failing to protect the Department of Defense’s hardware from the preventable problem of corrosion leave hardware susceptible to damage and degradation associated with exposure to heat, dust, ultraviolet rays and moisture.”

Envelop Protective Covers provide the military with a sustainment solution by using a multilayered breathable fabric incorporating a vapor phased corrosion inhibitor. Repeated tests by independent laboratories and branches of the military have shown that the use of Envelop Protective Covers can reduce the damage caused by corrosive environments by factors up to 95%.

“Sustainment of our nation's war fighting fleet has never been more important. Shield Technologies is proud to support our nation’s war fighters by being the leading supplier of this type of technology to DOD. We remain dedicated to providing solutions that aid our military in completing their missions” said Mike Dupasquier, Chief Operating Officer of Shield Technologies.

“The committee encourages the military services to follow the lead of the Navy and set a comprehensive service-wide strategy to mitigate corrosion that includes fielding more waterproof, breathable anticorrosion cover technologies,” the FY14 NDAA Report continued. Shield Technologies Corporation said it  stands ready with its Envelop and Envelop Magnum Series of protective covers to answer that call.
