Greenkote PLC has announced a new licensing agreement with Anochrome Technologies Ltd. through which Anochrome will provide Greenkote's advanced anti-corrosion coatings to customers in the UK.
Greenkote® is a patented thermal diffusion process that applies proprietary zinc-based coatings to ferrous metals and alloys. In addition to blocking corrosion, Greenkote also increases wear resistance, eliminates hydrogen embrittlement and improves adhesion to paints and other topcoats. The Greenkote name derives from its eco-friendliness, since the process is completely free of acids, chromium, heavy metals and other hazardous materials and it generates no toxic byproducts.
"Anochrome Technologies has long been a respected coating provider in the UK, and they have significant experience in industries like automotive, where Greenkote plays an important role," said Mark Gore, PhD, Greenkote's CEO, in making the announcement. "We are very proud that Anochrome has chosen to add Greenkote to its portfolio of coatings for the UK market."
"Greenkote is a natural complement to our current line-up of corrosion-protection coatings," noted Stuart Rolls, Anochrome Group Director. "Since we presently supply electro-plating, mechanical plating and various zinc flake and similar coatings, Greenkote now extends our offering to higher-end requirements, enabling increased corrosion protection in more challenging applications, especially when combined with our other topcoats."
