Marine Coatings

Cor-Pro Systems Inc. is the leading company providing fast and high quality marine coatings in Houston, TX and other areas in the Gulf Coast.

Saltwater is the harshest agent of corrosion. Since corrosion is an electrochemical process, the rate of corrosion with seawater is much higher because of the sea’s chemical composition.

Saltwater corrodes metals like no other corrosive agent.

Fortunately, there are corrosion-mitigating methods such as marine coatings that can protect the surface of marine equipment from corrosion. Metals treated with marine coatings will last longer and require less repairs and maintenance.

Marine Corrosion Properties

Marine coatings are specially formulated coatings specifically designed to combat the harsh seawater. By adding a layer of corrosion-protecting material on the surface of the metal, saltwater is kept at bay and the chemical process that leads to corrosion does not occur.

While there are other ways to protect marine equipment from seawater corrosion such as cathodic methods, marine coatings serve as their first line of defense from seawater.

Marine corrosion has a higher rate of corrosion because seawater becomes a voltaic cell that speeds up corrosion process. Marine corrosion attacks metals in two steps:

  • Anodic action which causes pitting on the surface of metals
  • Cathodic action that creates hydroxide ions through the reduction of oxygen to the air.

With marine coatings, industries can protect their equipment from corrosion through the use of chemically-enhanced coating solutions.

Types Of Marine Coatings

There are several types of marine coatings, with each product specially formulated for different alloys:

  • Chlorinated Rubber Resins
  • Vinyl Resins
  • Bituminous Binders
  • Cellulose Derivatives
