Applications

  1. Corrosion Control

  2. - Steel Coatings

  3. - Rebars


Steel Coatings: By coating steel substrates with our oxides particularly of ZrO2 and TiO2 we greatly shift the oxidation potential for these steels making them less susceptible t
o corrosion.We have found that by coating 304 and 316 stainless steel heat exchanger plates that these plates last for up to 4 years in salt water at 80oC where non-coated plates only survive for 6 months and suffer severe corrosion. An example of our coated steels can be seen here.


Rebars: Normally steel bars used to reinforce concrete are coated with organic polymers - those green coatings you see on the side of the road. These are very protective coatings w.r.t. corrosion. However, if there is a crack in the polymer, corrosion is
focused on this crack and results in rapid deterioration of the bar and the concrete. With our coatings we provide a uniform protective oxide coating that actually binds better to the concrete making the “pull-out” strength far superior to organic coatings.
