Home > Press > NEI Introduces Self-healing Anti-corrosion Coating for Zinc-Plated and Galvanized Steel

Uncoated zinc-plated bolts exhibit white rust after 24 hours and red rust after 168 hours of Salt Spray Testing (SST), while TC – 5001 coated bolts show significant corrosion protection even after 504 hours of SST.

Abstract:
NEI Corporation recently introduced NANOMYTE® TC‐5001, a nanotechnology-enabled, single
component, clear coating that significantly improves the corrosion resistance of zinc‐plated and hot‐dip galvanized (HDG)
steel. It is amenable to dipping, brushing, and spray coating. The new coating technology is designed to protect zinc‐plated and
galvanized steel surfaces from rusting under severe environmental and operating conditions. Applications of the
coating technology include protecting outdoor structures (e.g., electrical grid structures, street lights, and lattice beams),
hardware (e.g., rods, pipes, nuts, bolts and screws), automotive components and farming equipment. The dense barrier coating
can be used as a standalone coating, as well as in combination with NANOMYTE® PT‐100, a self‐healing conversion coating. In
salt‐spray tests (SST, ASTM B117), uncoated zinc‐plated steel bolts exhibited white rust in 24 hours and red rust after 168
hours. In contrast, the NANOMYTE® coating provided significant corrosion protection, even after 504 hours of SST. Typically, TC-5001-coated parts show no white rust even after 1000 hours and no red rust even after 1200 hours. SST can be used in conjunction with field testing and online life predictors for coatings on HDG, as prescribed by the American Galvanizers
Association (AGA).

NEI Introduces Self-healing Anti-corrosion Coating for Zinc-Plated and Galvanized Steel

Somerset, NJ | Posted on March 14th, 2014

NANOMYTE® TC‐5001 is part of NEI's expanding portfolio of anti-corrosion coating systems, including pretreatments
and topcoats that protect steel, aluminum and magnesium from corrosion. The coatings are economical, easy to use,
and provide excellent corrosion resistance compared to state‐of‐the art offerings. "Our thin, single component, clear
coating for zinc‐plated and HDG steel represents a significant advancement in the state‐of‐the‐art that could eliminate
the need for using primers and topcoats," said Dr. Ganesh Skandan, CEO at NEI Corporation. "The market focused
activities of NEI are a key to serving the needs of customers who require high‐performance anticorrosion coatings. Our
goal is to engage customers as partners in developing new corrosion-resistant coating products."

The NANOMYTE® line of coatings provides an array of advanced protective surface treatments for metal, wood, and
polymers. The coatings have tailored functionalities such as anti-corrosion, self-healing, scratch resistance, anti-ice, and
easy-to-clean. In addition, NANOMYTE coatings are versatile and can be modified to introduce color and other features
to meet performance and aesthetic requirements. NEI also offers a Materials Analysis, Testing, & Characterization service (MATCH) to help customers attain their materials performance objectives.
