Corrosion protection


Principle

Firm bonding to substrate
Corrosion inhibitors as an integral part of the matrix
Dense, transparent inorganic-organic matrix composite



Product properties

Good corrosion protection for metals including aluminium, magnesium and steel
High degree of resistance against acids and bases
Simple application e.g. by spraying, dipping etc. and subsequent thermal treatment
transparent
Good adhesion on the substrate without difficult pretreatment
Adjusted flexibility
Contact angle >120 (water), superhydrophobic, optional
Abrasion resistance similar to glass



Effect

Resistancy against salt-spray : up to 1000 h
Prevention of water diffusion to the interface with the substrate
Infiltration stability through firm chemical bonding



Application fields

In general: outdoor surfaces, which are exposed to rain.
Engine parts
Vehicles
Industrial plants
Construction industry
Machines/plant engineering and construction
