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:

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:

  • help to disperse the pigments (i.e. TiO2, anti-corrosion pigments) more effectively.
    • A better dispersed pigment dispersion creates a better barrier property.
    • Formulators could also have the flexibility to add more such pigments (due to its ability to effectively reduce the mill base viscosity) to create a more superior barrier property that will improve the coating’s corrosion resistance property. 
  • are specifically designed to be less hydrophilic
    • Reduce water sensitivity which could help to improve overall coating’s water/corrosion resistance property 
  • enable formulators to have the option to be able to use lower dispersant dosage due to its optimized chain design
    • Further reduce water sensitivity which could further improve overall coating’s water/corrosion resistance property

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!
