Reducing corrosion in hydraulic pipes

Challenge

Hydraulic pipes (16 mm) had to be replaced yearly due to marine environment corrosion (both sea water and animal waste material).

Hydraulic Pipes

Solution

Chesterton 752 Cold Galvanizing Compound was used to prime the pipes which were then coated with black paint. This protects the metal from both physical and galvanic corrosion.

The Chesterton 752 Cold Galvanizing Compound is:

  • Flexible, non-chipping, instant galvanizing
  • Consists of 95% pure zinc in dried film
  • Ultra-fine particle size
  • Fast drying​​​​​

Chesterton 752 Cold Galvanizing Compound

Results

Chesterton 752 Cold Galvanizing Compound is a one-part system, zinc-rich primer or protective topcoat for iron, steel, and weld joints exposed to atmospheric or corrosive conditions. The ultra fine particles act as a sacrificial coating with the anodic zinc becoming oxidized instead of the base metal.
