A persistent corrosion problem leads to at technology breakthrough
Soft metals such as aluminum and copper are very susceptible to pitting, oxidation and corrosion that wear away the metal and reduce its useful life. When these soft metals are repeatedly exposed to various environmental conditions, such as acid rain or salt spray, the corrosion and subsequent deterioration can be accelerated.
That is exactly what one prominent heating and air conditioning manufacturer had been experiencing with their air conditioning condensing units in coastal environments. Even though the units were new and featured pre-painted aluminum coils, the units would prematurely deteriorate and fail due to salt spray corrosion forming on the aluminum and copper parts. Unable to find a way to prevent the corrosion or stop the units from rapidly failing, they turned to us to help them develop a solution.
The research team at Kor-Chem has many years experience with anti-corrosion coatings, but the special challenge was the unique application factors that needed to be considered. The formulation had to ensure great adhesion, flexibility, durability without affecting the heat transfer of the coils and of course protect them from corrosion in a multitude of environments.
The result was a breakthrough in coating technology that yielded the unique product Corrosion Guard. This flexible water borne coating expands and contracts with metal, maintains energy efficiency and offers long lasting protection from the damaging, corrosive effects of water, UV light, salt spray and more. Corrosion Guard also incorporates anti-deposition technology that resists contaminant deposits and reduces the frequency of coil cleaning.
Today Corrosion Guard is even able to be field applied on the consumer level and continues to offer superior protection and extend the life of HVAC units.
