Silanes for Corrosion Control of Metals
Article Type: Conferences, training and publications From: Anti-Corrosion Methods and Materials, Volume 57, Issue 3
By William J. van Ooij, Springer, 1st edition (June 2010).
Silanes for corrosion of metals cover the emerging applications of silanes for use in the corrosion protection of metals. The role of silane coupling agents is less than ten years old and is attracting attention from researchers in industry and academia alike. There is no comprehensive book on this topic on the market. Silanes for corrosion of metals cover the chemistry of silanes – in solution and at metal surfaces – as well as mechanisms of corrosion protection and paint adhesion by silanes. Modification of silane films for improved protection capabilities, e.g. by the addition of corrosion inibitors, nanoparticles, or organic resins, is also covered. Special attention is paid to the use of silanes in primers for corrosion protection, either through modification of existing primers or in the development of the so-called water-based “superprimers.” The potential of electrodeposition of silanes or silane-containing primers is also explored. Silanes for corrosion of metals is not only to be recommended to scientists and engineers in industry, but also to researchers and students in academia and all those who have an interest reading a refresher book on silane chemistry and corrosion control of metals by a new, environmentally compliant technology.
