Speech Title: Application of Nanocontainers in Self-Healing Coatings
Abstract: Nanocontainers possessing the ability to release encapsulated corrosion inhibitor in a controlled way can be employed to develop a new family of self-repairing multifunctional coatings for corrosion protection of steel, magnesium and aluminium. The release of the encapsulated inhibitor occurs only when triggered, which prevents leakage of the corrosion inhibitor out of the coating and increases coating durability. Possible release triggers could be changes of the local pH or electrochemical potential in corroded area and external electromagnetic irradiation. This report covers principles and recent developments in the fabrication of the nanocontainers with good compatibility with the coating components, the possibility to encapsulate and upkeep active material, and permeability properties of the shell controlled by external stimuli. The corrosion protection performance is demonstrated employing several commercially available paint formulations as coating matrices for hosting nanocontainers with the use of both laboratory-scale tests (Electrochemical Impedance, SVET) and industrial-scale tests (neutral salt spray tests, weathering tests). Besides the incorporation of the single nanocontainer-inhibitor combination into the coating host, the efficiency of the use of nanocontainer mixtures was demonstrated, especially for different types of the inhibitors.
