Could Additives Be Ruining Your Anti-Corrosive Water-Borne Coatings?
Regulatory pressure drives demand for water-borne technology in the light protective and industrial coatings markets. Formulating these coatings presents a unique set of challenges, including providing adequate corrosion protection over metal substrates. Additives that are compatible in water can increase the hydrophilicity of the cured film, deleteriously effecting corrosion resistance. Among these are wetting and dispersing additives-- essential not only for appearance, but also to the overall barrier protection provided. The challenge is providing the best dispersion without increasing water sensitivity of the applied film. A twist on wetting and dispersing chemistry offers a new approach to address this concern.
After attending this webinar attendees will:
- Understand how corrosion uniquely affects water-borne systems
- Learn how additives can negatively impact anti-corrosion formulations
- Discover test methods for rapid solution screening
- See how new chemistries can balance hydrophilicity and improve corrosion resistance
