Polymeric Corrosion Resistant Coating Options – Types, Features, and Benefits

Polymeric Corrosion Resistant Coating Options – Types, Features, and Benefits

A polymer or paint consisting of polymers that adheres to surfaces well and also prevents corrosion may be referred to as a polymeric corrosion resistant coating. The process of polymeric coating involves the application of an elastomer or other polymeric material onto a substrate. These types of coatings can include urethane, epoxy, acrylic, silicone, natural or synthetic rubber, polyvinyl chloride, nitrocellulose, and phenolic resins. At Secoa Technology, we provide polymeric coatings that are applicable to the corrosion resistant needs of various industries.

Nylon Coating

Useful for a variety of finishing applications, nylon, as a polymeric corrosion resistant coating delivers high corrosion resistant benefits to industrial equipment. Some of the industries that routinely use nylon powder coatings include automotive, medical, and water processing. Rilsan® Nylon 11 is a nylon powder coating we apply and utilize to obtain excellent results. It provides protection against abrasion, chemicals, and impact – and it also gives an attractive appearance to surfaces.

Other Polymers

There are many types of polymers consisting of various properties. They are highly valued for further anti-corrosion and durability characteristics. These coatings are highly useful for the protection of various types of elements including pumps, piping, and valves associated with industrial equipment. Some of the products we can offer and apply include PFA, PTFE, ETFE, and Halar.

Polymer coatings are applicable for ceramics, metals, and synthetic materials. They have a temperature resistance of approximately 535°F (280°C). Many of these coatings are approved by the FDA to be used in the food production industry – for example, for the protection of multi-head scales, containers, and pans.

Some other polymeric corrosion resistant coating options include:

Alkyds and acrylics – these are used commonly for protecting farm equipment and other industrial products that require solid corrosion protection at a reasonable cost

Polyurethane – these coatings are used on aircraft, conveyor equipment, machinery for building roads, tugboats, and motorcycle parts. Urethanes with abrasion resistant characteristics may be applied to railroad hopper cars.

The application of a polymeric corrosion resistant coating to a metal surface also improves its ionic resistance.

Polymeric coatings designed and manufactured for protection against corrosion are often quite durable and are required to adhere well to a substrate without easily chipping or degrading due to the imposition of moisture, heat, chemicals, or salt.
