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

Reference number
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 - August 2019
Status Completed
Venture Strategic innovation program SIO Grafen
Call 2017-05429-en

Purpose and goal

1-Selection of graphene grade 2-Preparing graphene dispersions. 3-Analysing and selection of the graphene dispersions using optical microscopy 4-Incorporation of graphene dispersion into the GreenCoat® BT paints by SSAB 5-Application of the graphene-incorporated green paints and investigation of anti-corrosion properties of the final coatings by SSAB

Expected results and effects

The two project partners, RISE (RISE Research Institutes of Sweden AB) and SSAB (SSAB AB) closely collaborated in the incorporation of graphene into the clear coat and testing. In this study, graphene is incorporated into SSAB patented green anti-corrosion coating (GreenCoat®) formulation to study the performance of graphene containing anti-corrosion coating on hot-dip galvanized steel. Our result showed that incorporation of graphene flakes into GreenCoat® formulation resulted in improved anticorrosion performance when applied on hot-dip galvanized steel substrates

Planned approach and implementation

WP1. Selection of graphene grade and preparation of graphene dispersions by RISE. WP2. Incorporation of graphene dispersion into the GreenCoat® BT paints by SSAB WP3. Application of the graphene-incorporated green paints and investigation of anti-corrosion properties and durability of the final coatings by SSAB.
