The Benefits Of Hybrid Crosslinked Polymer Coatings

Manipulating macromolecules to protect our industrial machines and materials.

HYBRID CROSSLINKED POLYMER COATINGS

In 1953, when German chemist Hermann Staudinger won the Chemistry Nobel Prize for demonstrating that polymers are long-chain (giant) macromolecules, the foundation was laid for the plastics industry. Longchain polymers could be organized to create very strong long-lasting materials that eventually found their way into every industrial sector.

What is Microbiologically Influenced Corrosion (MIC)?

Written by Pennie Burnham, Nycote Laboratories Corporation

Microbiologically influenced corrosion (MIC) refers to biocorrosion, which occurs when microorganisms break down materials. MIC is recognized worldwide as an important corrosion category, and can lead to significant asset losses and dangerous conditions across all industries.

Billions of dollars have been dedicated to understanding how microorganisms affect different industrial materials, and it is estimated that about 20% of all corrosion failures are due to microbially induced corrosion. (Flemming, 1996; Beech and Gaylarde, 1999).

Paint & Coating Best Practices for Aerospace Applications

Troubleshooting Coating Application Appearance Issues

When you’re painting a ​$400-million-dollar aircraft ​there is no room for error. Starting over is expensive, time-consuming and difficult, so you’ll need to be sure that you take time to prepare your facility, surfaces, materials, and have a well thought out plan for executing each job.

Having a plan is important because industries like aerospace have strict quality standards and if the quality is off, you’ll need to recall your exact process in order to resolve the problem.
