Graphene-enhanced biobased coatings for corrosion protection of hot-dip galvanized steel

Reference number 2018-03322
Coordinator RISE Research Institutes of Sweden AB - RISE Bioscience and Materials / Chemistry, Materials and Surfaces Unit
Funding from Vinnova SEK 300 000
Project duration November 2018 - May 2019
Status Ongoing
Venture The strategic innovation programme for graphene
Call 2017-05429-en

Purpose and goal

In this study, it will be attempted to incorporate graphene into SSAB patented green anti-corrosion coating (GreenCoat®) formulation to be able to further enhance the performance of the anti-corrosion coating on hot-dip galvanized steel. The coating formulation utilized for developing graphene-based anticorrosion coatings is biobased; SSAB GreenCoat®. Thus, it aims an environmentally friendly and cost-effective anticorrosion coating

Expected results and effects

SSAB GreenCoat® is already in the market and proven for the outdoor and corrosion protection of hot-dip galvanized steel. Development of a new graphene-based coating will support SSAB to increase their market share and potential in the field.

Planned approach and implementation

Research Institutes of Sweden AB) will be contributing with the graphene dispersion and coating formulation, while SSAB (SSAB AB) will be dealing with coating application and testing
