NEW PRODUCT RELEASE
Aluminum-rich Coating With Patented
Outdoor Corrosion Resistance
386 Aluminum-rich Coating provides a new alternative to outdoor
paints and zinc-rich primers. The coating offers similar anti-corrosion
protection in severe, outdoor applications while providing a non-toxic
and non-flammable formulation. It can be used for a variety of metals
including steels, aluminum, and copper.
The new aluminum-rich coating is based
on a complex mixture of organic inhibitors and aluminum pigments.
To dramatically boost the corrosion resistance compared to outdoor
paints, other aluminum-rich primers and zinc-rich primers, the coating
is supplied in two parts. Part A as a clear latex coating and part
B as an aluminum paste. The paste allows a high density of aluminum
to protect against corrosive electrolytes and aggressive environments.
To further enhance its anti-corrosion
ability, Cortec® patented VpCI®
has been blended into the formulation. Their unique vapor phase
action enable VpCIs to immediately supplement any area under corrosive
attack. They are self-replenishing to provide long term protection.
Laboratory test data show that the coating provides over 1000 hours
of protection for steel and aluminum in a humidity chamber and 1000
hours of protection for aluminum in a salt-spray chamber with over
300 hours protection for steel.
In addition to its excellent anti-corrosion
capability in outdoor applications, Cortec® VpCI®
386 Aluminum-rich Coating offers an extended thermal stability range
of -40oF to +400oF (-40oC to 204oC).
For optimal outdoor performance, the coating incorporates excellent
UV characteristic. The coating provides exceptional anti-abrasion
qualities, making it easily adaptable to steel grating walkways,
decking and other applications where abrasion and wear are common
386 Aluminum-rich Coating can be applied using conventional manual
and spray methods. A thixotropic material, it is resistant sagging
and running. Its fast drying properties allow a dry-to-touch film
in 30 to 60 minutes.
