Axalta Coating Systems, a leading supplier of liquid and powder coatings worldwide, expanded its high-temperature, corrosion resistant internal pipe coatings with the launch of Nap-Gard® 7-0016, a thermosetting epoxy powder that is engineered to provide superior chemical resistance in temperatures up to 150 °C (302 °F).
Roman Author Pliny the Elder in his book ‘Naturalis Historia’ written around A.D. 79, stated that concrete structures in harbors, exposed against the constant battering of the saltwater waves, become “a single stone mass, impregnable to the waves and every day stronger.”
In architecture, ship-building, and bridge construction, large quantities of steel are traditionally used. Such structures are meant to last for a long time and at the same they should not lose any of their qualities regarding safety and strength even after many years.
Storage tanks used for product storage in industrial facilities are subject to soil-side corrosion during operation, especially when installed in severe environments.
Cortec® is eager to provide convenient, environmentally friendly solutions to corrosion problems. One of those important innovative solutions is the EcoAir® VpCI®-337 Fogger. EcoAir® VpCI®-337 is a convenient way to get the excellent tried-and-true corrosion protection of VpCI®-337 in an easy-to-use spray can powered by compressed air.
Time and time again, bridges and overpasses ultimately begin to deteriorate from corrosion of embedded reinforcing metal. This can be the result of simple carbonation as air exposure lowers concrete pH and destroys the natural protective layer that exists on freshly embedded rebar; or it can be caused by harsh humid, salt spray, polluted, or snowy environments that persistently attack the integrity of the concrete structure
Cortec® VpCIs offer a range of innovative options for reducing manufacturing costs and corrosion. In the case of VpCI®-371, Cortec’s protection rivals the corrosion resistance of stainless steel while significantly reducing material costs.
With documented public water issues caused by corrosion in Hoosick Falls, New York, and Flint, Michigan, it is necessary to know the impact of corrosion on copper at the atomic level so that such issues can be avoided in future pipes. Corrosion-related damage costs represent 3% of the US Gross Domestic Product (roughly $503.1 billion, as per the values in 2013).
Pump failures at oil production facilities globally—be it the Persian Gulf or the Mexican Gulf—are an occupational hazard, resulting in halted production and the loss of several thousand dollars of revenue and productivity for the business. It is mission critical to get the production line up and running quickly.
