chapter title Self-healing anticorrosion coatings
abstract All branches of industry have, for many decades, utilised organic coatings with active pigments. In most cases the pigments have included zinc dust, red lead oxide or chromates, the protective mechanisms of which are well understood. However, the use of lead and chromate-based coatings is no longer permitted, due mainly to their toxic and carcinogenic characteristics, respectively. This has stimulated much interest in the development of new environmentally-friendly coatings with active pigments that convey “self-healing” characteristics. The use of advanced primers containing “smart” self-healing pigments with up to four cooperative effects aims to provide enhanced corrosion resistance for steel or aluminium structures.
