How liquid corrosion inhibitors can help the coating formulators, and work as synergists with anticorrosive pigments.
After a quick presentation of corrosion theory and the main corrosion protection raw materials used in coating formulations, we will show how we can increase the corrosion protection of solvent and water borne coatings using liquid corrosion inhibitor additives, as an element of the protective coating formulations, providing interesting advantages such as better gloss for “direct to metal” applications and clear coat formulation.
The Presentation will describe the mechanism of Liquid Corrosion inhibitor additives, the formulations with those additives, and their performances through experimental tests in water based coatings and solvent borne industrial coatings formulations in synergy with anticorrosive pigments.
The Presentation will take roughly 30 minutes, as the theory part will be reduced so as not to over-run with other presentations.
