NANOMYTE® TC-4001


“Nanocomposite Barrier Coating Provides Superior Corrosion Protection”

NANOMYTE® TC-4001 is a one component protective coating to prevent metals, such as galvanized steel, from corroding. Galvanization alone does not provide prolonged corrosion protection, as the steel still suffers from white and red rust. TC-4001 is applied on top of the galvanized steel to act as a dense, hard and durable coating to eliminate contact between metal and moisture. The coating also reduces the chipping of paint, as observed on galvanized steel, and adheres strongly to bare, pretreated or painted metal surfaces. The formulation can be tailored to meet customers’ specifications and can be microns to mils thick. TC-4001 can be applied to metal by dipping, spraying or brushing.

Surfaces

Iron, steel, stainless steel, zinc plated and galvanized steel, aluminum, copper and bronze, powder coated metals, and painted and primed metals.

Solution

Addresses problems related to corrosion (rust), oxidation, moisture and ice formation, acid rain, chemical stains, UV damage, mold build up, marine biofouling, and animal waste contamination.

Characteristics

  • Color: Available in clear or 20 different translucent color stains
  • Finish: Gloss, satin, or matte
  • Vehicle Type: Solvent based
  • VOCs: Less than 100 g/L
  • Density: 7.36 lbs/gallon

Spread Rate

Recommended thickness per coat:

  • Wet mils: 1.5 – 2.0
  • Dry mils: 0.5 – 1.2

Coverage

~ 800 – 1,200 sq. ft / gallon
(varies depending on the porosity and texture of the substrate)

Surface Preparation

Metal surface must be clean, dry and in sound condition. Remove all oil, grease, dust, dirt, and other foreign material before application.

Testing

  • ASTM D-3359-09 (Tape Adhesion): 4B
  • ASTM D-3363 (Taber Abrasion): 39.11 avg
  • ASTM D-2803-03 (Proc. B [ISO 4623] Filiform Corrosion): None after 1,000 hr
  • ISO 4628-10 (Coating Degradation): None coated over primer
TC-4001 coated panels on right show no signs of white or red rust after 1,000 hours in salt-spray test (ASTM B117). Coating is approx. 10 microns thick.

TC-4001 coated panels on right show no signs of white or red rust after 1,000 hours of salt-spray testing (ASTM B117). Coating is ~10 microns thick.
