Anthony Toussaint Ph.D. will present at the Annual SSCT Meeting & Technology Conference

April 12-15, 2015, The Southern Society for Coatings Technology held it's annual meeting and technology conference at the West Palm Beach Marriott, West Palm Beach, Florida. ICL/ Advanced Additives supported the organization while sponsoring a Tabletop Exhibition on April 14th. During the Technology Conference, Anthony Toussaint, Ph.D., Director of Research & Development and Technical Service, presented his abstract: "Use of Organic Corrosion Inhibitors in High Performance Coatings."

Abstract Overview:

It is well documented that the corrosion resistance of a coating is significantly impacted by adhesion and barrier properties. Organic additives can significantly improve the corrosion resistance of a coating by increasing its adhesion to the substrate and its overall barrier properties. This paper shows how organic corrosion inhibitors can significantly enhance the corrosion resistance of high performance water based and solvent borne coatings when used in combination with an inorganic inhibitor. The use of EIS in characterizing this performance is discussed.
