EonCoat Rolls Out Zero-VOC Protective Coatings

EonCoat Zero VOC Protective Coatings

EonCoat LLC has introduced a new type of zero-VOC ceramic protective coating that purportedly resists abrasion, corrosion, high temperature and chemicals.

The product can be applied in a high-build, single coat with no primer, facilitating a quick return to service, says the company, based in Wilson, NC.

The coating does not come pre-mixed. Rather, it consists of two, non-hazardous ingredients that do not interact until applied by a plural-component spray gun like those commonly used to apply polyurethane foam or polyurea coatings.

Because the components do not meet prior to application, the need for VOC-generating ingredients is eliminated, according to the company. If the ingredients spill before they are combined, they can reportedly be cleaned as mild, non-hazardous substances.

Industrial Applications

The final ceramic coating is more like a thin layer of cement than traditional paint, EonCoat says. The company says the 6 mil finish is suitable for many industrial applications, including:

• Industrial plants

• Structural steel

• As a prime coat for corrosion protection under all topcoats

• Pipe lines, steam lines or plant piping

• Storage tanks

• Shipping containers

• Smokestacks

• Rebar corrosion protection

• Tanks and cargo holds on ships and land

Chemical Bonding

Unlike polymer coatings that sit on the substrate, EonCoat bonds through a chemical reaction with almost any substrate except plastic, the manufacturer says. Slight surface oxidation actually improves the reaction, it contends.

“This makes it virtually impossible for corrosion promoters like oxygen and humidity to get behind the coating the way they can with ordinary paints,” the company reports. “The corrosion barrier is covered by a true ceramic shell, which resists fire, water, abrasion, chemicals, corrosion and temperatures up to 1,000 °F.”

EonCoat  has a flame spread rating of zero; can be applied on hot or cold surfaces from 35 ºF to 200 ºF; and dries within seconds, the manufacturer says.

EonCoat offers training, equipment, certification, and sales distribution to domestic and international paint contractors.  For more information, visit www.eoncoat.com.
