Durability and Exposed Steel
Steel structural components exposed to exterior moisture and contaminants, such as salt, need protection to prevent corrosion.
Steel is mainly iron with small amounts of other chemical elements known as alloys. Adding alloys to the iron changes its physical properties, as does shaping and processing it. The pure iron in the steel is not stable chemical and tends to form compounds of iron, oxygen and water-rust. This process referred to as corrosion, occurs when there is moisture, oxygen and an electrolyte present on the surface of the steel. Generally, the longer moisture is in contact with steel, the more corrosion will occur.
High-performance coatings can be used to control corrosion by isolating the steel from the environment. New paint coatings can offer an effective barrier, but this effect decreases with time, UV exposure and physical wear and tear. Eventually, the paint film ages, and breakdown and corrosion begins on the steel surface. Rust has a much greater volume than steel, and as it expands beneath the paint film it causes blistering, cracking and flaking allowing the entry of moisture, which causes the process to accelerate.
The length of time a coating provides protection is influenced by:
- The type of coating used
- Its adhesion to the steel, which is dependent on the steel surface begin clean
- Adhesion between successive coats in the system
- The thickness of the coating
- The applied paint system’s and the ability to with hand the environment
