Aluminium tripolyphosphate pigments for anticorrosive paints

The efficiency of two anticorrosive pigments containing aluminium polyphosphate was studied. Pigments were analysed by current analytical techniques and characterised by FT-IR spectrometry. The anticorrosive properties of the selected pigments were evaluated following the electrochemical behaviour of a steel electrode in pigments suspensions. In a second stage, solvent-borne paints with 30 and 10% v/v of the pigment and PVC/CPVC (pigment volume concentration/critical pigment volume concentration) ratio 0.8 were formulated. Three resins were chosen as film forming materials: an alkyd, an epoxy and a vinyl. The performance of the resulting anticorrosive paints was assessed by accelerated (salt spray cabinet and humidity chamber) and electrochemical tests (corrosion potential, ionic resistance and polarisation resistance). The anticorrosive performance of the tested paints was closely related with pigment composition. The nature of the resin was also of importance; in this sense, epoxy paints showed the best anticorrosive performance. Good correlation has been obtained between accelerated and electrochemical tests.
