SOCOMORE will be exhibiting, presenting new Corrosion Inhibitor Compound at CAMX 2015, Dallas

Published on 04 September 2015

Socomore presents its new innovative long-term waterbased corrosion protection

SOCOMORE will be exhibiting at the upcoming Composites and Advanced Materials Expo at the Kay Bailey Hutchison Convention Center on Oct. 26-29 in Downtown Dallas, TX. Sales managers, Bill Marter and Phil Mawaka will be on-hand to introduce our new products and developments at booth K53. Socomore VP of North America, Andrew Leech, will also be attending. Our Technical Support, Juliana Garcia, MSc will be presenting her paper on Coatings/ Sealants on advances in traditional materials, on Oct. 28th at 4:00 pm*. See the presentation synopsis, below.

 

CORROSION INHIBITOR COMPOUND FOR COMPOSITE-METALLIC ASSEMBLIES IN AEROSPACE

Corrosion is the destruction of materials by chemical or electrochemical reactions that occur in the presence of electrolytes or by the electrical contact of dissimilar materials. This is an important issue for aircraft manufacturers because it affects the structural integrity of aircrafts.

 

Composites are increasingly becoming a material commonly used in aerospace and other industries, being an integral part of structures due to its particular properties like high strength and light weight.  Some composite materials are coupled together with metals like aluminium; in joining zones between metallic frames and composite structures, and in the connecting regions of two composite structures using metallic screws and rivets. This dissimilar coupling of materials could develop galvanic corrosion issues due to the difference on electrode potentials

 

To prevent corrosion, some sections of the aircraft require the use of a temporary protective coating commonly known as Corrosion Inhibition Compounds (CIC). These coatings are applied to protect the structure from corrosion by penetrating into joints and gaps, displacing water and forming an anticorrosive barrier that delivers a continuous water-repellent effect. They can be easily removed, with the aid of a cleaning agent, and be repaired and replaced as part of the maintenance process of the aircraft.

 

Socomore has developed an innovative temporary water-borne corrosion inhibitor compound, with short drying times (30 min) and outstanding anticorrosion properties. This new technology is fully compatible with metal and composites substrates, has good adhesion under severe environmental conditions (high humidity and temperature), and delivers excellent water-displacing abilities and mechanical properties. Its name is: SOCOPAC WBP
