Surface Coatings Association New Zealand
Sometimes we just can't get people to NZ in person. But, that doesn't mean we need to miss out! Ixom New Zealand has helped us organise the following webinar on 12th October:
Phyllis Ng, Lubrizol Singapore
Topic: Enhancing Corrosion Resistance with a Novel Dispersant Technology
Corrosion of metal surfaces can be a significant problem for sustainability—decreasing the product lifecycle and wasting the energy and resources that have gone into making the metal structure. This has a direct economic impact: a report by the National Association of Corrosion Engineers (NACE) estimates the worldwide cost of corrosion at US$2.5 trillion, equating to 3.4% of global gross domestic product(1). The costs can be split into two types: corrective and preventative. Corrective costs include labour hours and materials for replacing corroded items, as well as product lost as a result of leaks or accidents involving corroded infrastructure. Preventative costs incorporate methods for reducing corrosion on metal surfaces, including the option of applying a surface coating.
Novel Dispersant Technologies:
The above actions contributing to using an effective dispersant will definitely improve the overall corrosion resistance property of the finished coating.
In short, it is critical to choose the right ingredients (resin, pigment, additives) in the formulation to enable a certain corrosion performance to be met.
There will be time for questions at the end, so register now for this fantastic webinar!
