Damage to coatings leads to higher potential corrosion sites on the metallic surface and could ultimately lead to a decrease in service life. This paper will present a novel coating system that incorporates both damage resistance and flexibility in a system that is not subject to cathodic shielding.
This paper will review the features and benefits of a new epoxy coating technology that allows for true epoxy-amine curing in a single-pack product. Performance versus traditional two-component epoxy products will be compared, and environmental and convenience benefits of single-pack versus two-component packaging will be discussed.
Overview of coatings for a cyclic-temperature environment. Test method, including a heat cycle between 21 to 300 deg-C simulating the dehydrator operation and exposure to salt spray. The performances of the three coatings were evaluated using this method. Factors to be considered for coating selection in the cyclic-temperature environment are discussed.c
