Accidents and property destruction occur too often from damage caused by water and other corrosive elements. Corrosive water is a term used to describe “aggressive” or “hard” water that can dissolve materials with which it comes in contact. While aggressive water is usually not dangerous to consume by itself, it can cause serious drinking water quality problems by dissolving metals from plumbing systems. According to a recent study done by the US National Library of Medicine National Institutes of Health “In the past five decades or so evidence has been accumulating about an environmental factor, which appears to be influencing mortality, in particular, cardiovascular mortality, and this is the hardness of the drinking water. In addition, several epidemiological investigations have demonstrated the relation between risk for cardiovascular disease, growth retardation, reproductive failure, and other health problems and hardness of drinking water or its content of magnesium and calcium. In addition, the acidity of the water influences the reabsorption of calcium and magnesium in the renal tubule. Not only, calcium and magnesium, but other constituents also affect different health aspects.”
There are a few products out there that work to protect against such damage but when it comes to quality and performance, all-American made MAD products have them beat. MAD which stands for Marine Armor Defense has a line of all-green, single-component, water-based protection products that can be used on virtually any material, including metal, concrete, wood, foam and even glass. MAD Armor protects against rust, corrosion, mold and mildew. Not only will it water proof, but it’s acid and fire resistant too.
Originally MAD developed these products for use on ships which experience some of the harshest environments, but their application stretches beyond the sea. The secret to MAD is its strength. MAD Armor has the ability to stretch to 700% and can withstand up to 1,500 PSI. Also, thermal protection prevents it getting over 105 degrees. In addition to MAD Armor, there is MAD Shark for your floors and MAD Grip for your handrails. All of these products work to extend asset life and can be applied during or after initial construction to prevent future damage and lower maintenance costs. Those are just a few of the products in their arsenal. To find out more about MAD products check out getmadproducts.com.
