New video on self-healing primers to extent protection
In this webcast Kasisomayajula explained that zinc-rich coatings are used in a wide range of industries to protect steel substrates in extremely corrosive environments.
However, with exposure to a corrosive environment over time, the zinc particles corrode to form a non-conductive oxide layer around the particles, decreasing the sacrificial protective capability of the coating. The webcast introduced a self-healing additive that can be added in organic zinc-rich primers to extend the lifetime of the protective system.
The video of the webcast is now available online to subscribers of European Coatings 360°.
