HALOX® expands its product line with more cutting-edge sol-gel chemistry

HALOX® opens the door to all solvent systems with its second sol-gel based hybrid corrosion inhibitor HALOX® 550 WF - a water-free version of its breakthrough sol-gel technology HALOX® 550.

HALOX®’s hybrid sol-gel technology bridges the gap between inorganic and organic materials and addresses the demand for eco-friendly coatings because it replaces toxic heavy metal corrosion inhibitors. The sol-gel composition of HALOX® 550 WF works by forming a dense inorganic corrosion resistant network over most metal surfaces therefore it reduces white rust on hot-dipped galvanized steel and prevents black rust on silver substrates! 

Like the original HALOX® 550, the “WF” version promotes adhesion and protects metal from corrosion and offers more versatility in solvent-based coatings. HALOX 550 WF shows undeniable success in many systems such as: water reducible alkyds, high gloss acrylics, solvent-borne polyurethanes, clear coats, and polyurethane dispersions.
