Applied Coatings Houston

Cor-Pro Systems is the leading provider of applied coatings solution in Houston Texas.

Billions of dollars are spent every year on corrosion-related problems because companies act too late, when the corrosion is at a very advanced stage.

Cor-Pro Systems understands the importance of applied coatings Houston to save companies from costly rework or replacements of materials, equipment or structures.

Cor-Pro Systems provide top of the line applied coating techniques that include custom-made solutions depending on the specific business needs.

Key Factors Of Corrosion Prevention

The corrosion prevention techniques can vary depending on the degree of corrosion. Critical equipment used in subsea operations will require different techniques from, say, aerospace applications.

It is therefore important to know the factors or conditions that cause corrosion so that the proper method of protection can be applied.

  • Environmental factors are weather-related problems such as rain, humidity, and temperature. Equipment that are exposed to these factors require more attention and the upkeep is much more costly. A quick and easy way is to limit the contact of the metal equipment with seawater or rain. However, if this is not feasible, methods to manipulate the environmental factors can be utilized. One example is to treat the metal with chemicals or softeners to adjust the alkalinity or oxygen content.
  • The packaging factor. Unbeknownst to many, the type of packaging of metal parts can contribute greatly to corrosion. Most of metal packaging are non-treated and can hold moisture (e.g. corrugated paper). Knowing the packaging materials can determine what action needs to be done to prevent corrosion.
  • The process involved in using the equipment is also a factor to consider. For instance, metal fabrication carries with it processes that can contribute to metal deterioration. In this case, appropriate coatings can be applied to protect the metal surfaces
  • Storage location and proximity to other metal types. Dissimilar metal types that are submerged in seawater or moist soils can cause galvanic corrosion. This is common in ships, gas pipelines, and offshore rigs. For his kind of corrosion, the commonly used technique is cathodic protection, which converts unwanted active sites on the surface to passive ones, thereby creating a polarizing effect.

Cor-Pro Systems’s custom corrosion prevention techniques will depend on the causes of the corrosion and can help companies determine this early on so as to delay corrosion and prolong the life of critical equipment.

Common Types Of Corrosion

General attack corrosion

This is the most common type of corrosion caused by chemical or electrochemical reaction. General thinning of the exposed surface takes place until failure.

Atmospheric corrosion

The deterioration of a material due to reaction of the surface with the constituents of the atmosphere. Examples are bridges, gates, constructions, structures, and installations in salt water environments.

Galvanic corrosion

This occurs when two dissimilar materials / metals come in contact with each other in a corrosive electrolyte. An example is the corrosion on ships or transportation immersed in sea water.

High-Temperature Corrosion

This type of corrosion is caused by high temperature oxidization, sulfidation, and carbonization. Fuels used in gas turbines, diesel engines, or other similar machinery can form compounds with a low melting point during combustion. These compounds are highly corrosive to metal alloys.

Anti-Corrosion Method: Applied Coatings

Corrosion protection methods come in different forms, depending on the type of metals involved and the environment to which the materials are constantly exposed to.

One of the simpler methods is the application of coatings to the materials that are susceptible to corrosion.

Here are some of the coatings being used to fight corrosion:

  • Metal sprayed zinc or aluminium
  • Super alloy coatings
  • Stainless steel thermal spray metallizing
  • Inert ceramics by plasma spray
  • Nickel-Chrome alloys metal spray coatings
  • Tufflon coatings
  • Polymer coatings
  • Arc sprayed Zinc

Cor-pro makes use of these applied coatings in Houston and nearby Gulf Coast area where corrosion is a problem on seawater installations and structures.
