Abstract

Silicone resin based protective coatings are generally used for high temperature applications. In this work, anti‐corrosive and heat resistant properties of titanium dioxide, mica, zirconium oxide and quartz combination pigments with silicone resin as carrier vehicle in primer and top coat for mild steel surface have been evaluated. Promising results were obtained, showing that the ceramic pigments (zirconium oxide and quartz) impart heat‐resistance protection for steel substrate up to 370°. Electro‐chemical impedance spectroscopy, immersion studies and salt spray test results show good corrosion protection for the steel surface.
