Interpon – AkzoNobel – Anti-Corrosion Primers for Steel

Powder Coating Anticorrosion Primers for Steel

Atmospheric Corrosion on Steel
What is corrosion?
Corrosion is the deterioration of a material due to chemical or electrochemical reaction resulting from exposure to severe weather, due to humidity, to chemical products or to other agents present in the environment in which the material is located. This is simply a case of a metal in the process of naturally returning to its oxide condition.
Analysis of rust
There is no standard for visual assessment of rust. In general, laboratories conduct a more or less subjective assessment, such as the following one:

Active Protective Primer
Interpon APP 120
Protection by passivation of steel
Powder coatings make it possible to delay the infiltration of corrosion underneath the coating, using corrosion-inhibiting pigments which have the capacity for passivating the steel substrate.
This technology is used to slow down the rate of reaction with the water/oxygen mix, or to neutralise the acid ions caused by humidity.
Areas of use
• Components with machined edges produced by stamping, shearing, sawing
or drilling, or by thermal cutting. The expected levels of protection can be
achieved only by careful compliance to levels of preparation P1/P2/P3 according to ISO 8501-3,
• Agriculture equipment,
• Metal frameworks,
• Steel artworks (please consult us),
• Guard-rails,
• Public lighting systems,
• Shutters.
Characteristics and advantages
• Excellent edge coverage after surface pre-treatment with a suitable level
of preparation,
• Primer can be available in specific colors (on request),
• Can be used as a holding primer,
• Good anti-corrosion performance especially where passivation is used as
a pre-treatment,
• Can be coated with Cromadex liquid paints 1K or 2K PU types, as an alternative to Interpon powder coatings

Protection by barrier effect
The purpose of this technique is to isolate steel from its environment by protecting it with a water-proof, air-proof covering such as an enamel, a coat of paint, a plastic coating etc.
This is referred to as barrier effect protection.
Oxygen and other corrosive agents are prevented from making direct contact with the steel, and consequently no corrosion can form.
Areas of use
• Fixed components that are subjected to low humidity
• Items of industrial equipment
• Garden furniture, street furniture
• Signboards
• Gas bottles and tanks
• Guard-rails
Characteristics and advantages
• Excellent adhesion to steel substrate
• Excellent anti-corrosive properties
• Very wide curing range (refer technical data sheet)
• Good resistance to chemical attack
• Can be used as a holding primer for one week maximum
• Can be overcoated with Cromadex PU 1K or 2K type liquid paint as an alternative to Interpon power coating

Take the heat off

This product is really taken off. The silver items have had our two coat system internal heat barrier applied that keeps a lot of heat radiation through the system, improves performance according to the manufactures of this product. Long lasting will not discolour or flake off or crack even with rapid cooling. We are so confident that we will guarantee against fading & cracking. However at very high temperatures running red hot it may lose some luster. Applied by our team who have gone through extensive training so to offer you the best finished product possible.

We don't set out to make problems for anyone. We comply with health & safety rules and have always carried out improvements when requested by H&S in fact the last visit cost my business getting on for 20K to fit new spray booths and this is fine as it has made improvements to the environmental impact and improved productivity. We have a full insurance inspection twice a year on the plant & machinery, have our staff monitored for related medical issues, breathing hearing etc, three of them have full fork lift training, all this costs a small fortune but we play the game and do what needs to be done. Ok if your company is out of line and causing problems then you can and should expect some sort of comeback, but all it takes is for someone to make the problems and inconvenience known to the owner that it may cause other people, not hide behind the authorities.

Anyway who ever it was thought our gas calor gas tanks were wrongly sited, the fact they have been there for 12 years and sited by Calor gas who know the law and regs inside out how to site them. They are checked every year for safety including the feed out gas pipes, they are protection by safety barriers and are in line with the regs at the time of placement. It seems some twat thinks they know better. I guess they don't like to see businesses who are doing well play the game or they just don't like them where they are. It makes me think is it all worth the grief and frustration and great expence running a business these days.

Some idiots think you have a wallet full of money, guess again we don't. It's a very costly running a company large or small. so many rules regs, miles of red tape, dealing with employment rules, tax & vat, Health & safety, taking on increasing overheads without passing them on trying to be fair and just.

The cherry on top of the lot is the twats that have nothing better to do but stir up further unfounded complaints. Makes me extremely angry..

Thats my anger vented and as far as I am concerned that hopefully is the end of it.
