Enhancing the corrosion resistance of epoxy coatings

The main goal of a research project was to enhance the corrosion inhibiting performance of graphene oxide (GO) nanofillers in epoxy coatings via modifying the surface of the GO sheets with silane coupling-agents.

Long-term release of block copolymers from fouling-release coatings

Researchers have developed a method to quantify the concentration of block copolymers based on polydimethylsiloxane from fouling-release coatings. About 300 experimental coatings exposed to seawater for up to 5.2 years were included in their analysis.
