All metal surfaces need protection from corrosive intrusions. One of the most effective and sustainable methods to curb such intrusions is the complex yet simple to apply process of nylon coating for metal. The process is quite akin to that of painting, where a paint brush or spraying device will be used. This protective process is already widely in use by aircraft carriers whereby aircraft is being protected from fuels, oils, lubricants, salt spray, water and phosphate ester hydraulic fluids.
The processing formula is liquid. Along with corrosion protection, high impact, abrasion resistance, flexibility and toughness is being given to the materials or surfaces to which this protective liquefied solution is being applied. It can provide protection to all surfaces at temperatures ranging from as cold as minus seventy degrees Fahrenheit and as hot as over three hundred degrees Fahrenheit. Contributing towards the sustainable use possibility is that containerized solutions enjoy a shelf life of up to six months.
Even so, preservation procedures will be required to prolong the solution’s life expectancy to ensure that it does not absolve into redundancy. Pre-preparation is important too. Before painting or spraying, all surfaces to be coated need to be cleaned of oils, grease and dust. A specially formulated patented thinner is available for this preparation purpose. The container housing the solution needs to be shaken before being opened.
Before applying a necessary second coat, no less and no more than one to two hours are necessary in order to achieve a tack free surface. ‘Wetted’ surfaces need to air dry in areas free of dust and lint. This is part and parcel of the curing timetable to be followed. Storage temperature directions of solutions also need to be adhered to.
