Material selection is the most important general form of corrosion prevention. Choosing the correct material based on the environment decreases the amount of corrosion and lengthens the span of the equipment. Organic coatings will react differently depending on the environment to which they are exposed. Alkyd resins are oil-based coatings that have excellent adhesion to poorly prepared surfaces, but are not chemically resistant. They are suitable for dry exterior uses only. Consequently, there are material selection choices to be made. We can help with engineered corrosion protection options.
