Global coatings supplier Hempel has announced the launch of its Trusted Asset Protection Survey (TAPS) Digital Application in North America.

The new digital tool is expected to accelerate coating condition surveys, according to the company—a system in which final recommendations can be delayed when conducted via a manual process.

Now, reports recorded by TAPS will be stored on Hempel’s server and connected to its customer extranet in order to give access to the most recent information available for managing assets, it adds.

The overall condition survey focuses on giving the asset a coating and corrosion condition status to help spot potential problems, minimize risk and prioritize the areas that need to be considered first for maintenance, Hempel explains. It is intended to help a customer identify where to allocate operational expenses to conserve the performance and aesthetic appearance of their assets.

“We have developed this tool to assist our customers in the reduction of their maintenance costs by focusing on the long-term protection of their important assets,” Hempel says, adding that the cost of corrosion in North America is estimated to be over $3 billion annually.
