Types of Corrosion-Resistant Protective Coatings

March 12, 2019

Types of Corrosion-Resistant Protective Coatings In order to prevent metals and materials from corrosion, which affect their effectiveness in various industrial applications, industrial coatings are being used to act as protective layers. Corrosion usually takes place when multiple chemical reactions occur between atmospheric conditions and metal surfaces. This is why it is crucial to make use of an effective protective coating to mitigate the effects of such reactions that hamper the durability and quality of metals and materials.   Here […]

Different Types of Corrosion in Metals

March 5, 2019

Different Types of Corrosion in Metals No matter what type of material a high-performing component is made of, it will get corroded. Luckily, there are corrosion-resistant coatings that can help increase its lifespan and reduce maintenance and replacement costs.   In order to choose the right coating, it is essential to know what type of corrosion makes the part of a component vulnerable. Remember that the corrosion type that develops will depend on what condition a part is exposed to […]

Types of Protective Coating for Specific Metals

February 12, 2019

Types of Protective Coating for Specific Metals Naturally, iron gets corroded when exposed to oxygen or water. And since most metals contain iron, they all experience corrosion when exposed to these elements. With the introduction of high temperature, microbes, and salt, the degradation process of metals is accelerated. This is the reason why industries that make use of equipment that are made up of metals make sure to address corrosion-related problems as soon as possible to avoid build-up of repair […]

The DON’Ts of Applying Anti-Corrosive Coatings

February 5, 2019

The DON’Ts of Applying Anti-Corrosive Coatings Facility managers have learned the lesson not to delay attending to corrosion problems in metal structures, as it is better to prevent them before they get worse and further the damage. And one of their solutions to corrosion-related problems is through painting the exterior of corrosion-prone metal surfaces. The key is to know how to avoid oils, coatings and sprays which only partially protect the surface by simply reducing the ability of moisture and […]

Possible Sources of Corrosion in Metals

January 29, 2019

Possible Sources of Corrosion in Metals There are types of pipes that are less likely to corrode, and to name one is the copper pipe. It is commonly used more in plumbing compared to other metals such as galvanised pipes or zinc-coated iron pipes. The copper types were widely used. However, due to constant exposure to flowing water, they get corroded as the iron rusts. Other conditions where copper pipes are likely to corrode include homes that are with acidic […]

Processes in Removing Rust on Metals

January 5, 2019

Processes in Removing Rust on Metals Removing rust from metals is a tough task. And the work gets more difficult when the product used is not right and delivering its supposed purpose which is to remove the rust. Such products are usually expensive that buying the inappropriate ones can already hurt, and can consume much time when applied to metal surfaces. This is why preventing rust from forming should be one’s priority instead of waiting for the metal to suffer […]
