Huge losses are incurred due to corrosion and rusting. Many rust preventers / protectors / primers or epoxy topocoats are available but are never cost effective.
Rust is oxide and hydroxide of iron formed on the metal surface. Fe(OH)2 andFe2O3.H2O. Rusting occurs due to an electrochemical reaction with iron in presence of moisture and Oxygen. Iron acts as Anode and other metallic impurities acts as Cathode. Electrolyte is formed by conductive salts in water to complete the electrochemical reaction.
Rust puffs up and forms flakes and scales further exposing the under surface to free Oxygen. Thus the new exposed surface gets converted into iron oxide in humid atmosphere. This process goes on continuously destroying the steel completely.
This is particularly evident in all solvent based primers, which do not allow the surface moisture on the metal surface to dry or evaporate and thereby creates conditions for rust formation.
The best way to prevent corrosion will be then to stop formation of Fe2 and Fe3 ions and prevent their migration in the electrolyte to Cathode. We propose to do exactly that with our unique Steel Guard NanocoatTM.
On application of Steel Guard NanocoatTM on steel surface, it penetrates into very fine cracks, pores and crevices and reacts with free iron particles to form complex Nano crystals.
These crystals are so tenacious that it becomes inseparable part of iron, This layer does not allow iron to form Fe ions. This prevents initiations of rusting. Moreover special water repellent formula of Steel Guard NanocoatTM does not allow water to invade in the steel.
The structure of these nano crystals are of such that it increases bonding with any coating applied on the surface including paint / galvanising / epoxy and even concrete. This further increases life of the protective coating and thereby that of steel.
