More noteworthy, the authors will demonstrate the ability to replace toxic heavy metal corrosion inhibitors using a room-temperature applied sol-gel process in combination with environmentally friendly corrosion inhibitors.
The sol-gel chemistry described here is modified using a proprietary approach to allow it to be used as a metal pretreatment solution or as a stable liquid corrosion inhibitor in paint (primers).
Tafel plots of the bare and sol-gel coated substrates were used to determine the extent of corrosion protection afforded by this technology.
