The Sixth Element (Changzhou) logoIn a recent coatings event held in China, The Sixth Element and Daopeng Technology presented graphene-based anti-corrosion coatings.

The anti-corrosion coatings based on grapheneSE1132 from The Sixth Element are said to be a milestone for anti-corrosion applications in marine environment. Adding 1% graphene to the primer, formulated with only 25% zinc powder, more than 3000 hours can be achieved in the salt spray test. Compared to conventional anti-corrosion systems using 70%-80% zinc powder, this new formulation with 1% graphene reduces the necessary zinc amount by more than 50%.
