Corrosion Inhibitor Chemistries and Test Methods in Practice
By Michelle Bauer of ICL - Halox
The development of corrosion resistant coatings is found in numerous market segments including industrial, automotive, aerospace, architectural and many more. All of these coating types rely on similar corrosion inhibitive chemistries to achieve long lasting rust prevention. Test methods, however, can differ greatly in these markets depending on the demands of the coating’s application. Accelerated tests allow formulators to make decisions about formula components much quicker than conventional outdoor exposure, but these results don’t always correlate to real world performance. A review of corrosion inhibitive chemistries, formulating best practices and the test methods used to select them will be presented.
Michelle Bauer is a Senior Project Chemist at ICL-Halox, located in Hammond, Indiana. She has worked at ICL for the last four years where she is responsible for new product development and technical support. Her 20 years of industry experience began with Ace Hardware Paint Division, in quality and product development roles. Before joining ICL, Michelle also spent time as a product development chemist with Valspar’s Consumer Division. She holds a Bachelor of Arts degree in Biology with a minor in Environmental Studies from Augustana College.
