Permanent corrosion protection for carbon steel

News and articles on the latest performance coating technologies and cutting-edge innovations

Permanent corrosion protection for carbon steel: it’s real and it’s available now

Imagine if there was a performance coating capable of protecting your carbon steel assets from corrosion for the duration of its life, in just one application.

EonCoat offers a radically different approach to carbon steel asset corrosion protection and forms the latest in our portfolio of high-performance industrial protective coatings. That’s right, this technology is available now.

Let us explain.

Unlike conventional industrial polymer coatings which form a sacrificial mechanical bond to the steel, EonCoat phosphates the steel it comes into contact with, forming a two-micron thick amorphous magnesium iron phosphate layer. In other words, instead of enrobing the asset in a protective blanket, EonCoat becomes part of the steel.

As a second line of defense against corrosion, a white ceramic layer forms over the alloyed surface to create a reservoir of phosphate corrosion protection – a dual-pronged attack which outperforms all other market leading steel protection systems.

By chemically bonding to the surface of the steel and making it non-reactive, EonCoat isn’t susceptible to scratching or abrasion in the same way as a polymer coating, making it ideal for even the most hazardous of industrial, infrastructural or marine environments.

Goodbye repeat downtime, hello peace-of-mind

With just a single application to worry about, you can say goodbye to the regular downtime which is synonymous with polymer paint systems, safe in the knowledge that EonCoat’s performance is not compromised by real-world abrasion. In fact, when tested using a Tabar machine, EonCoat was 16 times more wear-resistant than polymer paints and up to 9.6 times tougher than epoxies*.

*Tested on a Tabar machine with an abrasion wheel for the measurement of .001” wear, polymer coatings took 75 cycles, epoxies took 125-250 cycles and EonCoat took >1200

Fast application and rapid return to service

Applied using a standard plural component industrial spray system, the coating is administered at a thickness of 20mils and dries in minutes – so that’s minimal labour costs, a quick return to service and no further re-applications for some of your most crucial assets.

Completely fire resistant

Because it is completely inorganic, EonCoat also has a flame spread rating of zero – it simply will not burn, even when exposed directly to flames. In fact, the only way it will become fire damaged is if the substrate behind the EonCoat ignites from heat.

EonCoat in action – worldwide

From offshore platforms in the Gulf of Mexico to oil pipelines in China, industries from around the world are already switching their asset protection specification to EonCoat. The energy and marine sectors as well as the industrial, heavy machinery and infrastructure industries have been fast on the uptake, protecting a multitude of different structural, mechanical and storage assets. Here’s a snapshot of some key assets which are already benefiting from EonCoat’s 30-year protection guarantee:

  • Floating tanks
  • Oil and natural gas pipelines
  • Metal processing equipment
  • Industrial plant
  • Pumps
  • Compressors
  • Turbines
  • Rebars
  • Railways
  • Marine docks
  • Offshore platforms
  • Ships
  • Earth moving plant
