The greatest threat to military assets -- Mother Nature. Transhield protective covers utilize cutting-edge technology to safeguard critical investments against the elements. The smart fabric provides a barrier against heat, moisture, and contaminant infiltration and prevents corrosion by up to 95%. Nature can assault equipment in many ways, but Transhield covers provide effective protection against all causes of degradation.
Innovation is more than a word to drive marketing campaigns. It speaks to our ability to use human creativity to improve the world around us. In everything from improving the vehicles we drive to the smart-devices prevalent in our lives, innovation drives us towards a better future. Take, for example, the TEDTalk given by Eben Bayer in which he shows how recent developments have allowed us to use mushrooms to improve packaging materials.
The American Wind Energy Association (AWEA) is holding the largest wind energy trade show in North America in a couple of weeks, and Transhield is proud to be part of it. WINDPOWER 2017 will be held May 22-25 in Anaheim, California at the Anaheim Convention Center. It’s a chance for movers and shakers in this innovative industry to network, attend education sessions, and visit with those at the forefront of this cutting-edge field.
Don’t miss the Transhield booth at the MRO Americas Conference & Exhibition April 25-27 in Orlando! We’re excited to showcase our top-of-the-line products to the aviation aftermarket in Booth 5911. This premier event fosters the exchange of ideas and best practices, discussion of experiences, debate of issues and challenges and transfer of knowledge among members of the commercial air transport maintenance, repair, and overhaul industry.
The readiness of military assets is fundamental to protecting the US homeland and its interests abroad. The vehicles and equipment that form America’s defense arsenal include military ground vehicles, weapon systems and devices on naval ships and airfields. These expensive and critical investments that may be called up at a moment’s notice face a barrage of daily threats; corrosion, mold, mildew, UV radiation, water intrusion, and wind damage are just some of the natural forces that can compromise the reliability and integrity of defense assets. That’s why branches of the US Armed Services, in particular the Navy, count on Transhield’s heavy duty fabric to protect the machines that protect America.

Equipment losses were appalling in the early years of World War II. This was primarily due to poor packaging for overseas shipping, which led to widespread corrosion. Fortunately, those trying to address the problem found that paper, cardboard, cloth, and other packaging materials could be impregnated with nitrite-based corrosion inhibitors and used for either shipment or storage of equipment. As such, VCIs have been extensively used by the U.S. Department of Defense since World War II, and the DoD includes VCIs in a military standard for packaging materials.

Transhield military covers are used by the United States Army, United States Marine Corps, National Guard, United State Coast Guard and the United State Navy. Awarded 182 NSNs, Transhield's covers protect military assets from the elements.
Transhield is going to the 2017 Global Force Symposium and Exposition and we could not be more excited. We will be joining 6000 other attendees and exhibitors in Huntsville, Alabama, to explore the next phases of innovation that will be implemented by the US Army. With representatives from a wide range of industries attending, we know the sheer number of booths can be overwhelming. Luckily, we’ve put together a few excellent reasons why visiting the Transhield exhibit should be at the top of your list.
It’s incredible how much of an impact corrosion has on a country’s infrastructure, regardless of climate. Everywhere from deserts to the tropics, corrosion results in poor performance and dangerous conditions, necessitating repair and even replacement of equipment and materials. Worldwide, the costs associated with corrosion are astronomical. In the United States alone, the cost is around $276 billion per year.
Transhield has experienced a lot of change over the past several years. From explosive personnel growth to implementing a new ERP system, we are faced with change on a consistent basis. We’ve found, over the years, it’s how we react to change that determines our rate of success.
