Corrosion Passivation in short
Corrosion passivation means that you stop the corrosion process without the absolute need for sandblasting or traditional coating. This makes the execution of corrosion passivation projects fast and cost effective, whilst the results last for very long periods of time. A chelate technique lasts 5 years and longer in saltwater environments (nC® Nano Corrosion Passivator Fluid), or go over 15 years of no corrosion when nC® Nano Corrosion Passivation Cold Alloy Paint is the product of choice.
Corrosion passivation fluid works through the chelation process. Here, particles form a bond with the iron behind the rust (if present). It pulls specifically the loose iron oxide apart from the surface. These nano particles form a flexible barrier on and inside the capillar and intermolecular structure of the metal surface. The formulation passivates the metal corrosion process.
The corrosion passivating cold alloy paint has a sol-gel base formula. Suitable for either new or blasted metal, or metal with already present (heavy) corrosion. The particles bond chemically with the metal surface. It adds a cold alloy that can only be removed through rupture. nC® Nano Corrosion Passivator Paint withstands welding temperatures.
If you have material thickness that is sufficient now, but will expectedly be subject to replacement during the next special or intermediate survey, nC® Nano Corrosion Passivator is your solution to keep thickness as it is right now.
Particularly, a big advantage of corrosion passivation is that you can apply it on wet surfaces. Consequently, it is also possible to passivate corrosion in for example ballast water tanks, rudders, peaks and other confined areas by means of floating. Of course traditional application, like rolling, brushing or spraying, is possible, on wet surfaces.
nC® Nano Corrosion Passivator Fluid is suitable to stop and passivate heavy corrosion and remove loose rust, specifically without the need of time-consuming sandblasting or jetting. It will last up to 6 years in saltwater, >15 years in freshwater.
Specifically suitable for corroded metal. Removal of the present corrosion is not required. NCP Primer passivates corrosion, so no metal regression will take place anymore. NCP Primer bonds with the metal surface. You can paint over for colour finish.
A cold alloy paint that passivates new or corroded metals. Blasting, grinding or chipping not needed when used with NCP primer. Bonds in metals, chemical resistant. Withstands welding temperatures. Protects against corrosion for more than 20 years.
nC® Nano Corrosion Passivator Touch Up is specifically designed to passivate corrosion and metals indoors or in open, weather exposed areas. This without the need of time-consuming sandblasting, chipping or sanding down. It will last up to 2 years in saltwater environments.
This 2-component system prevents metals from corroding in extreme hostile chemical environments. It beats UV, weathering and chalking during it’s lifetime. As nC® Nano Corrosion Passivator High Chemical Resistant is developed for applications in, above and under water it is very versatile in use.
