It is well known that unfortunately various types of destructive attacks can occur to structures, ships and other equipment used in sea water service.  The term 'aqueous corrosion' describes the majority of the most troublesome problems encountered in contact with sea water, but atmospheric corrosion of metals  exposed on or near coastlines and hot salt corrosion in engines are equally problematical and like aqueous corrosion require a systematic approach to eliminate or manage them.

Bull Frog line of products offers contemporary technology that has been perfected and proven in marine applications around the world. Wide range of products protect clients’ investments and help them perform at their optimal level. Bull Frogs’s Vapor Corrosion Inhibitors (VpCI’s) replace conventional and hazardous petroleum-based rust preventatives.
