The prospects for using graphene in the paint industry are determined by a number of its outstanding properties:
The use of functional additives based on graphene in anticorrosive coatings significantly increases their barrier and shielding properties, gives them the ability to self-repair, improves the effect of cathodic protection of metals and eliminates the use of toxic chromium-containing additives.
These advantages are realized in paint coatings developed by specialists of the company Rusgrafen. We also proposed methods for modifying the marketed protective coatings based on epoxy paints using graphene materials (unoxidized graphene, graphene oxide and reduced graphene oxide). The solutions are primarily applicable for corrosion protection of the external and internal surfaces of steel pipes and components of metal structures in an aggressive marine climate.
Rusgraphene is open for cooperation and is ready to implement its developments in the production process, as well as to conduct joint research and development on mutually beneficial conditions.
