Wilhelm to Distribute Cor-Tain Coatings

WinTec Protective Systems Inc. has signed a distribution deal with Wilhelm Security Solutions to supply its nano-based polymer anti-corrosive coating line called Cor-Tain.

WinTec’s Cor-Tain is a fully encapsulating, protective, nanotechnology system for metals; the company describes the system as a “protective skin.”

Maryland-based Wilhelm Security Solutions is a supplier and installer of building protective products for defense-related, high-security and risk environments.

Cor-Tain can be used on metal surfaces

Houston-based WinTec, a subsidiary of Medina International, provides protective products to pipeline operators, building owners and all levels of government agencies nationwide. Its other products include Blast Block, blast protection for pipelines and conduits; and Hydro-Tain, an oil-spill recovery system.

The distribution deal with Wilhelm expands Cor-Tain’s reach to different aspects of the federal government, the companies said.

Cor-Tain Technology

WinTec says its Cor-Tain technology is based on the principles of applying two products to a metal surface:

• A metal-penetrating, nano-based hydrophobic primer coat that is easily applied and environmentally safe, and

• An overcoat of a highly cross-linked nano-based hydrophobic polymer membrane to protect the nano-based primer from UV light, impact and weathering from abrasion, acids, petro-chemicals and other substances.

Cor-Tain is engineered “to either shorten or end the continuing application of epoxies or paints to slow or prevent corrosion,” according to WinTec.

The industrial coating can replace epoxy coatings and galvanizing and can be applied to concrete to offer acid resistance, the manufacturer says.

Development and Testing

Formulated to withstand extreme corrosives such as hydrofluoric acid to meet offshore petrochemical requirements, Cor-Tain coats each micro-fissure in the metal with nano-particles, preventing hydrogen and oxygen molecules from invading the metal, the manufacturer says.

In August 2010, Cor-Tain passed a 3,000-hour Salt Spray Testing program done in accordance with ASTM B117 by Exova Labs, an independent facility in Houston. Exova is now conducting exposure tests of Cor-Tain with hydrofluoric (HF) and hydrochloric (HCl) acids combined at elevated temperatures to meet ASTM G-48 requirements for a petrochemical company in South America, WinTec says.

The company is also conducting further tests to meet infrastructure anti-corrosion requirements found in ASTM D-01, ASTM D-33, ASTM D2510, and NTPET (National Transportation Product Evaluation Program).

Wilhelm Security Solutions will supply Cor-Tain products across the Washington region’s commercial marketplace, with a special focus on the federal government, company officials said.
