Advanced anticorrosion metal coatings provider Greenkote PLC (Brook Park, Ohio, USA) announced a new advancement in its line of corrosion protection products. Greenkote G5k is a proprietary new coating that delivers a minimum of 5000 hours of corrosion protection in salt spray testing for metals, enabling it to meet American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM) B117, a salt spray test standard of the corrosion resistance of metals and coated metals.
The announcement was made by Greenkote CEO Mark Gore and manager of engineering Nick Hagglund.
“With G5k, we're upping the ante in anti-corrosion coatings,” says Gore. “Greenkote has become synonymous with metal corrosion protection across a broad range of needs. Now, G5k becomes the new high-end in Greenkote high-performance coatings—no red rust after 5,000 hours of standardized corrosion testing by a recognized industry laboratory.”
“This level of performance is aimed at the most challenging anti-corrosion applications, including those in marine and coastal environments as well as many automotive and industrial uses that expose metal parts to wetness or harsh chemicals for long periods of time,” adds Gore. “For these types of applications G5k can extend service life and reduce maintenance and replacement costs significantly.”
“It's important to remember that G5k offers all the other Greenkote technology benefits, as well,” says Hagglund. “It's not just on the surface, Greenkote coatings are actually diffused into the metal. This gives them superior adhesion, longer life, and more conformal coverage, which allows their use on complex geometries such as small threaded parts. It also provides an excellent surface for painting and rubber bonding.”
