Anti Rust Coating: A Viable Solution to a Bare Metal Problem

Anti Rust Coating: A Viable Solution to a Bare Metal Problem

Bare iron and steel surfaces pose a serious risk of degradation over time through exposure to moisture, oxidation, and chemicals. Every year, the direct economic impact of corrosion in public infrastructure leads to billions of dollars lost to the government. The impact on infrastructure safety and serviceability adds up to poorer performance of structures. Health monitoring and repair or replacement become tasks of severe complexities, in addition to expensive burdens. Proper handling and corrosion protection of metal surfaces at an early stage is an effective way to attain good life expectancy of components and avoid unpredictable corrosion. An anti rust coating is one viable solution to provide corrosion and chemical protection.

An Effective Solution

Anti-rust coatings form an essential part of any industrial equipment and infrastructure component, ensuring great life expectancy, efficiency, and performance, regardless of the environmental conditions. They act as a barrier between the metal and the harsh environment your item potentially faces for the entire duration of its long service life. Employing these coatings on the surface ensures low maintenance costs over the life of the component in addition to better reliability and performance, as your equipment originally intended. In addition to their primary purpose, these coatings also provide utilities such as abrasion resistance, durability, and lubrication.

Anti rust coatings are available in the following types:

  • Polyester powder coatings: Available in vast color options with superior durability and UVA protection.
  • Epoxy powder coatings: Budget-friendly solution for waste treatment and water valves.
  • Nylon powder coatings: Excellent resistance to abrasion, corrosion, and chemicals.

Extra Benefits

Various performance enhancements to the above types of anti-rust coatings can also be achieved. For example, materials like zinc-rich and epoxy primer enhance the corrosion resistance of polyester coatings. A variety of products are available for very specific usage in a variety of environments. A wide variety of harsh environments require qualities like high operating temperatures (about 150°C), electrical resistance, non-stick performance, low-friction surfacing, and impermeability, which are achievable in a range of our products.

Wrapping Things Up

As a cost-effective solution tailored for use in a variety of environments, achieving corrosion resistance and adding extra features to coated surfaces, using an anti-rust coating has become a vital method of ensuring a long and quality usage life of various metal components you depend on. Our company takes pride in the quality of work we have been doing in this field and the service we provide to our customers in terms of excellent performance and reliable solutions that meet your specific needs, whatever they may be.
