Anti Corrosion Coatings

Severe localised corrosion can lead to catastrophic failure of engineered components. These failures can potentially be prevented by a combination of correct design, material selection and surface treatment (coatings). The correct choice of coating and substrate pre-treatment are critical. Many factors need to be considered, including:

  • Substrate material (Crystal structure, grain boundary composition, surface condition)
  • Dissimilar metals
  • Environmental conditions
  • Chemical exposure
  • Temperature exposure
  • Wear, galling or fretting potential
  • Stressed areas
  • Time of exposure
  • UV
  • Design weaknesses – crevices, sharp edges, welds

At E/M Coating Services we have worked with design engineers for the last four decades advising on the most suitable form of corrosion protection in all industries and we offer a wide range of solutions including:

  • PROCOAT100™ – Self healing, high performance anti-corrosion system
  • Anti-corrosion Paints / Subsea paints: International paints, Sigma Coatings, Amercoat, Carboline
  • Zinc/aluminium flake coatings: Atotech, Deltatone
  • Zinc coatings: Zinga, Zinga Ceram
  • Thin film anti-corrosion coatings and DFLs: EverSlik 1201, EverSlik 1301, Xylan 1070, Xylan 1424, Xylan 1425.
