Corrosion Resistant Coatings
These coatings create a barrier between the metal and corrosive materials in order to protect them from degradation that can occur from oxidation, moisture, salt-spray and exposure to industrial as well as environmental chemicals, extreme temperatures and acids.
Corrosion resistant coatings are coatings that are developed and applied to metal components, such as:
- Stainless Steel

Advantages to Corrosion Resistant Coatings
Without coatings metal surfaces begin to corrode and oxidize. Not only does corrosion and oxidation negatively affect appearance, but as negative effects on the performance characteristic of the metal as well. Many coatings also offer the added benefit of non-stick performance and abrasion resistance.
Some common corrosion resistant coatings include:
- Epoxy/Air Dry
- Epoxy/Thermal Cure
- Inorganic Zinc
Specific application requirements can be met by matching the most appropriate coating for the component. Many of these include high-tech processes such as thermal spraying plasma and selective plating, which go far beyond the capabilities of simple epoxies and paints. Such coatings improve the performance and functionality for even the most demanding requirements, and will enhance surfaces, products, parts and overall production value.
Companies that offer corrosion resistant coatings often also offer surface preparation, and extras such as bright dips and electropolishes, decorative coatings, chromates and top coats. For more information about specific coatings and processes, contact a provider today.
