Why should you view this course?

Despite consistent efforts to replace chromate in protective coatings formulations, search is still ongoing for durable alternative systems. Current environmentally-compliant solutions (water-based coatings, sol gel...) are still not at par with traditional corrosion-resistant systems. To achieve optimal performance, you need to tackle this issue from both fundamental aspect & raw material perspective. Join this course to accelerate your R&D in the right direction & stay ahead of your competition. Industry expert, Patricia will help you:

  • Understand the different methods for substrate protection from corrosion (passive, active, sacrificial….)

  • Learn about the accelerated testing methods (humidity test, salt spray test, stress corrosion test)

  • Develop an environmentally-compliant durable coating system by learning about the latest alternatives to replace chromate

  • Advance your R&D in the right direction by knowing what is being investigated by different institutes and companies
Protective Coatings Formulation Strategies to Solve Corrosion Issues

Who should view this course?

Coating Formulators, R&D professionals, and Specialists trying to develop greener protective coatings for both decorative and high end applications (marine, airplanes…featuring substrates like carbon steel, aluminium alloys…)
