Transhield Has Innovation Covered

Custom protective covering company increases efficiency by 6X and lowers cost with just one FARO® Focus3D X 130 Laser Scanner.

What do snowmobiles, jet engines and armored tanks have in common?

All are high-performance machines subject to degradation from the elements, and all benefit from advanced protective covers from Transhield Inc.

Founded in Elkhart, IN, in 1994, Transhield was started by Greg Todt, who invented a shrinkable fabric that could be used to protect heavy equipment during transportation and storage. While the initial line of covers targeted the automotive and RV industries, Transhield steadily grew its patent portfolio, now numbering 12, enabling it to expand across a range of industries, including industrial equipment, marine, aerospace and military applications.

Based on years of in-depth research on corrosion and advanced materials, Transhield has developed a line of custom coverings that protect equipment against the forces of nature. The outer layer of a Transhield cover is a durable ultraviolet (UV) resistant polyethylene film available in different colors. The middle layer is a hot melt adhesive with an optional, patented Vapor Corrosion Inhibitor (VCI) delivery process to guard against corrosion.

The inner layer is a soft, non-woven polyester, and often scrim (strong, coarse fabric) reinforced with VCI additive. The covers, which are custom-fit designs, safeguard equipment from moisture, including rain and snow, as well as UV rays and other environmental hazards. The covers have been found to reduce corrosion by up to 95%, protecting companies’ investment in expensive and mission-critical equipment.

“Our competitive advantage is our material,” says Bob Coulter, Transhield’s director of Data Acquisitions and Technology, citing the company’s robust patent portfolio. “Moisture creates mold, which creates rust. A huge GDP (gross domestic product) percentage from the military is wasted by rusted equipment.“
