Better Corrosion Resistance?  Proof Inert Coatings Are Worth Its Salt

January 29 2016 Process Analytical


Many coastal applications like oil and gas platform, refinery, marine, and coastal air monitoring expose equipment and sample systems to highly corrosive salt environments.  Sampling systems exposed salt environments require both an inert and corrosion resistant flowpath.  

Aside from the obvious damage to equipment and increased maintenance cost, salt corrosion can also adsorb sample compounds and negatively impact overall sampling results.  That's why our R&D team constantly work to improve both the inertness and corrosion resistance of our coatings.

Recent salt spray data show how improved Dursan® is the ideal coating for demanding coastal environments.    

Seeing is believing.

Take a look at our salt spray video, you'll be impressed by the corrosion resistance of Dursan®.

Dursan® corrosion resistance data.  

The data is equally impressive; Dursan® coating (right) shows excellent dielectric stability in salt water after 60 days, providing an effective corrosion barrier on the substrate.

More than just salt water corrosion resistance.

Dursan® significantly improves corrosion resistance for a variety of corrosives found in oil and gas, refining, semiconductor, bio-analytical, and environmental sampling.  Corrosives include:

  • Hydrochloric acid
  • HBr
  • Sulfuric acid
  • Bleach
