Coatings in marine and offshore areas need to protect metal surfaces against corrosion and weather in highly demanding environments. Dynasylan® SIVO systems have proven their functionality even under harshest demands. Formulations based on Dynasylan® SIVO 140, a water-borne silane system as binder for two pack zinc dust paints, improve the corrosion protection of ship parts.
Bridges are constantly exposed to a strongly corrosive environment. Dynasylan® SIVO 140 was also designed for a better compatibility with additives and fillers. Water-borne corrosion protection formulations based on Dynasylan® SIVO 140 are playing an increasingly important role because they don’t contain environmentally harmful organic solvents.
Environmentally friendly zinc dust paints based on Dynasylan® SIVO 140 do not need special equipment for formulation and application. The steel beam is coated with a zinc dust formulation based on Dynasylan® SIVO 140. The coating was easily applied with a HVLP spray gun.
Test panels are prepared in the laboratory for testing. Dynasylan® SIVO 140 offers solutions to the challenges that the paint and coatings industry currently faces. Products and processes have to protect the environment, and one of the most important demand consists of eliminating critical components.
Adhesion is a main requirement: no problem for Dynasylan® SIVO 140. Intelligent development concepts are founded on high standards of research and production, sustainability and economical process management. Our experience and expertise have been proven over decades all over the world.
Environmentally Friendly binder for corrosion protection with extra benefits
The water based and almost VOC-free and therefore also eco-friendly product Dynasylan® SIVO 140 is formulated with zinc dust as second component. Besides curing at room temperature, it also provides a good adhesion to topcoats.
Dynasylan® SIVO 140 has many advantages in comparison to other water-borne binders for zinc silicate coatings. It dries quickly, it is easy to process, compatible with many fillers and pigments. Furthermore it has a higher heat resistance than water-borne organic binders and can easily be diluted with water without generating undesired ethanol.
Dynasylan® SIVO 140 is used as a binder for corrosion protection coatings on ships, offshore facilities and bridges. These coatings display excellent against sun and ocean. Furthermore, industrial plants and utility poles belong to the typical application areas. Depending on the application the aqueous system can be brushed or sprayed.
