The Sixth Element & Daopeng Technology Present Graphene-based Anti-corrosion Coatings In China Coat

The 23rd ChinaCoat was held in Guangzhou, China, November 30st till December 2nd, 2016. It is the largest coating show in Asia which attracts people from 27 countries and more than 1000 exhibitors majoring in coatings, inks, raw material, etc.

 The Sixth Element & Daopeng Technology presented graphene-based anti-corrosion coatings in ChinaCoat.  The anti-corrosion coatings based on grapheneSE1132 from The Sixth Element are a milestone for anti-corrosion applications in marine environment.. Adding 1% graphene to the primer, formulated with only 25 % zinc powder, more than 3000 hours can be achieved in the salt spray test. Compared to conventional anti-corrosion systems using 70 % to 80 % of zinc powder, this new formulation with 1 % graphene reduces the necessary zinc amount by more than 50 %.
