pH-sensitive inhibitor release system for corrosion protection
TS-062835 — Coatings are broadly used to protect metallic structures from corrosion. However, aggressive acidic and alkaline conditions can both develop locally on the coated metal surface due to corrosion, leading to the failure of the coated structure. Commonly used smart coatings use a timed release of spe…
