Environment-Friendly Zinc Aluminum Flake Coating for Corrosion Protection

Environmentally friendly paint coating using the sacrificial cathodic protection mechanism can be an alternative to toxic paints and also environmentally hazardous electro plating processes.

Low-carbon steels corrode in most of the atmospheric environments when the relative humidity exceeds 60%. Corrosion is the destruction or deterioration of a material because of reaction with its environment. Most common corrosion control methods use coatings and conversion layers, which contain toxic and environmentally hazardous materials. There is a need to find nontoxic and environmental friendly alternatives compatible with current industrial techniques.
