All About Corrosion

According to sciencedirect.com, corrosion is the gradual destruction of materials, usually metals, by chemical reaction with the environment. This means that an electrochemical oxidation of metals react with an oxidant such as oxygen. This usually degrades the useful properties of materials and structures including strength, permeability, and appearance to liquids and gases.

what causes corrosion

Industrial equipment, installations and plants are subject to high rates of corrosion due to harsh operating and environmental conditions in the Philippines. Corrosion can lead to structural failure, costly repairs, and environmental damage, lost or contaminated products, risk to personnel, and loss of public confidence.

Approaches available for controlling corrosion include the application of protective coatings to metal surfaces to act as a barrier or perhaps provide sacrificial protection, the alteration of an alloy chemistry to make it more resistant to corrosion, and treatment of the metal surfaces to increase its resistance to corrosion. Organic coatings are typically the first line of defense against corrosion and and mechanisms of protection. These coatings are used to protect the metal from the environment and their barrier properties are of specific interest.

Thermacoat is tint able to any color you can imagine, or it can be matched to your existing color. The coatings are produced from 100% synthetic materials which is very important since paints and other coatings use fillers organic materials that are easily broken down by nature. The vacuumed ceramic micro-spheres are the filler in Thermacoat. These ceramics make the coating an excellent insulator, performing like inches of other insulation.

Thermacoat forms a seamless, beautiful, crack free surface, and then remains flexible, even in the harshest of conditions, this can dramatically reduce air infiltration and can lead to savings of up to 45% of your heating and cooling costs.
