ACRYLIC LATEX COATING FOR RESISTANCE TO ATMOSPHERIC CORROSION TO METAL SURFACES

Recommendations are presented for the use of these coatings, which accumulated experience indicates, have corrosion protective capabilities and may be used as substitutes for alkyd or other solvent coatings in atmospheric service. This report on latex maintenance systems covers latex primers, latex topcoats, and self- priming latex systems applied over metal surfaces and over previously painted surfaces. Latex maintenance primers are specially formulated (with one or more rust inhibitive pigments) to give corrosion protection over ferrous metals. Latex coatings should be stored above 32 F and below 120 F. Comments are made on choosing the surface, surface temperature and moisture, and surface preparation. The method of application including film thickness, dry time, coverage and thinning and cleaning equipment are covered. Adhesion to plant construction materials, flexibility of the film, curing of the film, weatherability and chemical resistance are also discussed. The advantages and disadvantages of the use of latex coatings are listed.
