Recorded Wednesday, February 14 – Presented by Ferro
The use of anticorrosive coatings is one of the most common ways to protect metal surfaces, and their protective effect can be increased by the inhibition activity of an anticorrosive pigment included in the coating.
This webinar provides first, an overview about the chemical and physical properties of Ferro’s Nubirox anticorrosive pigments, and secondly a review of some useful formulation parameters that may be relevant for the formulation of protective coatings:
- Anticorrosive pigments slow down corrosion due to their chemical inhibition mechanism, but their physical properties are also important for their effectiveness. Ferro’s range of corrosion inhibitors includes technically efficient anticorrosive pigments (Nubirox) that help coatings formulators achieve present performance requirements for many protective coatings applications. In addition to their effectiveness in slowing down the corrosion of different metal surfaces, Nubirox are also an environmentally friendly solution for new sustainable coatings, as well as a compatible solution for innovative DTM coatings with additional aesthetics and gloss requirements.
- For an accurate anticorrosive coatings formulation, several factors must be taken into consideration when an anticorrosive pigment is replaced or introduced in a formula. The reactivity of the anticorrosive pigment, its particle size or its effect on the pigmentation level (PVC/CPVC ratio) are some factors to consider if we want to reduce the risk of unexpected failures.

One Response to “Coatings Formulation Against Corrosion: Smart Use of Nubirox Anticorrosive Pigments”
Nice article .As we know that corrosion is a common but major problem .To protect the metal you need to know which anti corrosion methods and types should be used to protect it from corrosion.Thanks for the article.Very informative article.
