The marine environment is without a doubt the most corrosive where nature takes its toll 365 days a year. Whilst paint coating can provide a reasonable protection to large areas of vessels it is inneffective for protection against corrosion to valves, flanges, winches, pulleys, bearing housings, pumps, hydraulic systems, steel to concrete interfaces and other equipment in storage.
We fight corrosion for the US Navy and industry.

We are a veteran-owned small business (or VOSB, in government-contracting speak). We are a business that is at least 51% unconditionally owned and controlled by a veteran.
Almost a decade ago, the Department of Defense laid out plans to protect the machinery, facilities and other assets that were susceptible to corrosion. Today, the budget for this area is nearly 22 Billion US. VSM is committed to helping protect our precious assets from corrosion.
You should not be surprised to find VSM Group working with the United States Navy. VSM is also working with many other industries including the Oil & Gas, Energy sector. We help companies combat corrosion to valves, flanges, winches, pulleys, bearing housings, pumps, hydraulic systems, steel to concrete interfaces and other equipment in storage. Oxifree & VSM Group are up to the task.

TM198 is melted down from a solid resin (in the supply unit) and applied using a heated hose and gun. It provides a organic, pliable thermoplastic barrier coating, which will protect all types of metal components against galvanic pitting and atmospheric corrosion as well as protecting from water and dust ingress.
Oxitape is a moisture activated composite tape that cures in air or water to form a hard, protective shell which is chemical, UV, abrasion and impact resistant. Oxitape is simply applied over the top of Oxifree TM198 providing a defensive shell that offers complete protection from contact as well as corrosion and contamination. Following the application of TM198, Oxitape can be applied immediately. Typical application time for a flange on a 2 inch pipe is 5 minutes
The Polymelt 12 was designed to offer the following advantages: Ease of transportion Lightweight Compact for use in very confined areas No need for air compressor Multi voltage options Perfect for repairs and gun are all individually heated, therefore no need to flush machine after use
Department Of Defense
In the USA it is estimated that the annual direct cost of corrosion for the nations industries is hundreds of billions of dollars and managing it is critical to our way of life.
DoD Annual Cost of Corrosion: $21.9B

GALLERY (UNSURPASSED PROTECTION)
Oxifree has the unique capability of encapsulating these components forming a 100% protective shield which eliminates the harsh corrosive environment destroying these essential spare components. With the increased use of aluminum in military vessels Oxifree can hold the key to eliminating corrosion caused by dissimilar metals.
From offshore structures to pipelines and refineries, corrosion plagues the oil and gas industry causing the loss of billions of dollars a year in maintenance costs. More importantly, the threatened integrity caused by corrosion opens the door to safety critical issues such as the leakage of toxic gases and chemicals creating a significant liability for a company, not to mention the environmental risks.
Oxifree’s TM198 encapsulation process, using a patented thermoplastic coating with inhibiting oils, has proven successful in the prevention and protection of both new and old surfaces. Because our product is reusable during application, waste is virtually eliminated. Simply collect the excess material, remelt and reuse.
Bases & Facilities
GAO says Naval Shipyards in poor condition, unable to fix ships on time. Navy leaders tell lawmakers one problem is lack of long-term, dependable funding and reliance on Continuing Resolutions.
With longevity being a key factor in the development of Oxifree the Navy can justify the capital investment in Oxifree throughout, ensuring that wherever possible the infrastructure is being protected and ensures longevity with minimal maintenance.
Oxifree protects anything for up to 10 years. It can be removed and reapplied and is extremely cost effective. There are installation all over the world that could benefit from the use of Oxifree.
