ICL\ Advanced Additives will present at the conference at the 2016 American Coatings CONFERENCE

ICL\ Advanced Additives is proud to announce the following event at the 2016 American Coatings CONFERENCE, a technical conference that coincides with American Coatings SHOW.

"The Dispersant Effect, Corrosion Control with Aqueous DTM Coatings"
Presented by David Tarjan
Tuesday, April 12, 2016
Session 11, 2:30-3 PM

In recent years the coatings industry has been challenged with designing and developing aqueous direct to metal coatings to replace incumbent solvent based systems. Advances in corrosion inhibition through synergistic effects combining inorganic/organic inhibitors have shown to be effective in corrosion prevention through metal passivation and adsorption. The role of dispersant technology on corrosion is often overlooked. Polyacrylate and Polyalkoxylate chemistries offer effective wetting and dispersing however can negatively impact film hydrophobicity and, thus, the corrosion protection properties. Controlled flocculating dispersants offer wetting and anti-settling while maintaining anti-corrosive properties. Pigment affinic groups also play a role and are discussed in conjunction with specific dispersant chemistries. This paper captures the critical role dispersants play on direct to metal anti-corrosive aqueous coatings. Through rheological analysis, accelerated testing and electrochemical analysis this paper identifies the electrochemical behavior of dispersants as it relates to performance, specifically corrosion prevention in aqueous direct to metal coatings.

David Tarjan a Sr. Project Chemist at ICL Advanced Additives earned his degree in Chemistry from Northeastern Illinois University. He is an active member of CSCT and SSPC and sits on the SSPC Education Advisory Committee. Currently he is responsible for both product development and marketing technical service for ICL, focused on the paints and coatings industry.

After this informative presentation, international representation from ICL\ Advanced Additives will be available to discuss your corrosion, defoaming, and dispersant needs. Find us at BOOTH #2742.
