plastocor® Breakthrough Invention Still Blazing a Trail in Tube Sheet Protection

Delivering since 1956 plastocor® The Original!

While today plastocor-international SA celebrates more than 65 years in the corrosion prevention and repair field and is recognised as a global leader in pioneering solutions in that field, way back in 1956 few may have guessed that the invention of the original plastocor® Cladding System would have set in motion such an important breakthrough in tube sheet protection. A breakthrough that continues to impact to this day.

It has been said that from small beginnings, great things can grow and that is indeed the exact description of the breakthrough discovery made by Dipl-Ing Ernst Kreiselmaier in 1956. The original plastocor® Cladding System can be found in thousands of power plants worldwide today, but where did it all start?

From inventor to global solutions provider

Back in 1956, Dipl-Ing Ernst Kreiselmaier was approached by a befriended engineer in search of help for a corrosion related problem they were having at their local coal power plant. Tasked with solving the problem of corrosion damage of the condenser’s tube sheet, he struck upon an idea that turned into plastocor® flagship protective coating for tube sheets.

That pioneer solution, the original plastocor® Cladding System, blazed a trail in tube sheet protection and repair that continues to this day. Applicable in both old and new tube sheets, plastocor® Cladding System both protects and repairs corroded tube sheets to near new condition, and offering considerable extension of the lifespan of tube sheets. Our advanced coating technology is now a global solution provider, offering clients worldwide a credible and reliable option in optimising tube sheet efficiency. Our consistency in performance since 1956 is what makes us The Original!

Celebrating a legacy of excellence

Over the next few months, we will continue to celebrate the continuity that defines plastocor® commitment to ever-improving standards. Our dedication to excellence means we will always bring the most state-of-the-art solutions to corrosion and erosion damage, using our advanced technology in protective coatings. But we can let our track record do the talking – thousands of tube sheets protected and repaired worldwide in thousands of power plants since 1956!
