You may recall me speaking about a fantastic follow up report from Shell after its inspection of an Enviropeel test application by our UK distributor in the North Sea (September 2016). This report has now been incorporated by Shell into its recommendations for maintenance purposes in atmospheric conditions:
Test applications for Shell in the North Sea

  1. The Enviropeel coating system is a suitable surface tolerant coating system for maintenance purposes for atmospheric exposure conditions. 
  2. Minimum surface preparation is required before application of Enviropeel. It is recommended to have a minimum St 2 surface cleanliness.
  3. The Enviropeel coating system can provide a reactive solution to existing corrosion problems on assets, with long-term active effects. Based on track records and long-term testing, the expected lifetime prediction for the coating system is 10 years.

Just like we have been telling you all along!

Enviropeel Holdings, LLC took ownership of the Enviropeel brand and IP in early 2016 following investments in various aspects of the business after the owner of Enviropeel Holdings, Kenny Boehm (whose name rhymes with ‘came’ not ‘comb’) was first introduced to Enviropeel in Las Vegas in 2010. Although Kenny was there for a trade show not the gambling, he decided to make a bet on Enviropeel and his company was soon the Enviropeel license holder for all of the Americas, from Tierra del Fuego to Hudson Bay. He later formed Enviropeel Holdings to acquire all right, title and interest to the Enviropeel brand and IP in early 2016.

Kenny’s background is in engineering, his companies have designed and built caterpillar-tracked drilling rigs as well as making key components for the production lines of a variety of major industries, including Coca Cola. He knows machinery so, although he was fascinated by the unique qualities of the Enviropeel material, he was also intrigued by the possibilities of equipment development for its application.

Through Enviropeel, Kenny came to know much more about the entire corrosion industry as well as Enviropeel’s sister product, Alocit. It might not surprise you to learn that, when he heard about a paint that could be applied underwater, he thought that was a good idea too, and took a majority stake in Alocit International, the company that makes it.

The only problem with Alocit, for Kenny, is that it doesn’t use specialist application equipment that he can redesign … but you can bet he is working on it!


In previous blogs we have talked about changes in ownership, the transfer of the Enviropeel IP to Enviropeel Holdings LLC in America and other corporate wheelings and dealings, without explaining what this means for the most important people in our business … our customers.

In the short term, it has meant a few changes in personnel, including a move for me from working with A&E in the UK to working directly for the new owner in the US. For the Blog it has meant a rather quiet period while we assimilate all the changes and, for Enviropeel, it has brought big investments in a new range of equipment and a streamlined supply chain that should greatly increase availability of material and equipment.

So, for the customer, it is great news.

The new range of application units is more affordable, lighter and easier to move around but with all the capacity and reliability of the superseded CA series. Even better, with major components designed and purpose built by Enviropeel in the US, the new units heat up faster and are far simpler to operate and maintain.

The new MA Series comprises:

The MA10 – a light-weight, one-man unit that can easily be loaded into the back of a pick-up yet with the capacity to perform a wide range of tasks. This unit can be supplied with its own built-in compressor for full operational independence. Unit capacity 10Kg/22llbs. Click to see video of this unit in operation.

The MA25 – a full capacity unit capable of the most demanding tasks. Lighter than the CA18 and easier to manoeuvre yet with almost the same capacity as a CA30, the MA25 is the new Enviropeel workhorse, ready for anything. Unit capacity 25kg/55llbs.

The MA25 Zone 2 unit – similar to the MA25, this unit is DNV certified for use in hazardous areas with explosion-proof electrics for use in areas where gas is present in the atmosphere. Unit capacity 25kg/55llbs.
