Benefits of Rust Mitigation Coating Systems

W.T. Kenney’s advanced coating systems stand as a bulwark against the degradation caused by rust, offering unparalleled protection to steel structures. These coatings, including epoxy, acrylic, alkyd, and urethanes, are meticulously selected and applied to ensure maximum durability and resistance against environmental challenges.

Epoxy coatings are renowned for their exceptional adhesion, providing a robust barrier against corrosion and chemical exposure. This makes them ideal for environments that demand high durability.

Acrylic coatings enhance rust mitigation durability as they form a protective barrier that blocks moisture and oxygen from reaching the metal surface, resisting corrosion. Their chemical resistance, flexibility, and UV stability further contribute to long-lasting protection against rust, ensuring the coating maintains its integrity over time.

Alkyd coatings are valued for their versatility and aesthetic flexibility. They offer good protection against moisture and are suitable for a variety of surfaces, making them a popular choice for both industrial and decorative applications.

Urethane coatings are distinguished by their superior weather resistance and UV protection. Their resilience makes them perfect for outdoor structures, ensuring long-term preservation of the substrate.

Rust Mitigation (FAQs)

Rust is caused by the reaction of steel with oxygen and moisture, a process known as oxidation. This reaction is accelerated by environmental factors such as humidity, salt, and pollutants.

Rust can be prevented through the application of protective coatings such as epoxy, alkyd, and urethanes, which create a barrier against moisture and oxygen.

These coatings offer extended protection against corrosion, increase the lifespan of steel structures, and reduce maintenance costs. 

The lifespan of a coating depends on the type of coating, the environment, and the quality of application. Generally, they can last several years before reapplication is needed.

Inspection frequency depends on the environment and exposure to corrosive elements. Generally, annual inspections are recommended, with more frequent checks in harsh environments.

Most steel surfaces can be coated, but surface preparation is crucial for effective rust prevention. This may involve cleaning, sandblasting, or applying a primer.
