New Fast-Dry Version of Water-Based Micro Corrosion Inhibiting Coating!

Cortec® Corporation has recently expanded its range of water-based anti-corrosion coatings by developing a new fast-dry version called EcoShield® 386 FD. This combines the worker and environmental advantages of a water-based coating with the performance of EcoShield®...

Enhanced barrier properties of epoxy coatings

A new study describes the barrier properties of epoxy coating containing CaCO3 microparticles modified with cerium nitrate. In the study, the protective properties of epoxy coatings containing pH-sensitive calcium carbonate (CaCO3) microparticles modified with cerium...

Effect of polymer hardness on the abrasive wear resistance of thick organic offshore coatings

The effects of polymer hardness on the abrasive wear resistance of organic coatings, designed for the corrosion protection of offshore wind power structures, have been investigated at varying applied forces. The results of the tests revealed statistically significant...

Review of the cathodic disbondment resistance of pipeline coatings
