Montmorillonite (Mnt) and organic polymer composite membrane are widely used to enhance the corrosive resistance of metal materials due to their unique properties. Now, a uniform anticorrosion membrane coated on aluminum plate was fabricated with organic-modified nano-Mnt (OMnt) and epoxy resin (EP) as raw materials, which showed good smoothness, wear property and resistance to acidic and salty corrosion.

Wide applications in industry

The maximum impedance reached 2.29 × 107 Ω, which was much greater than that of other EP membranes. The results show that the OMnt/EP composite membrane exhibits excellent anticorrosive property, which is – according to the researchers – highly promising for wide applications in industry.

The study has been published in Journal of Coatings Technology and Research, Volume 19, July 2022.
