INDUSTRIAL MACHINERY ENAMEL is a
modified alkyd enamel which forms a weather resistant coating.It is felexible
and resistant to salt and spillage of mineral oiland other aliphatic
hydrocarbons.As a general purpose finishing coat in alkyd paint systems in mild
to moderately corrosive environment. Alkyds are modified with large number of other
resinous materials, and this is one of their distinct advantages. each of
the other resins provides some of its properties to the alkyds and, in doing so,
makes for a versatile series of coating materials. The primary materials that
can be combined with alkyds are listed below.
Some, but not all of these combinations are of interest to the corrosion
engineer. Most of these materials are actually reacted into the basic alkyd
resins and are considered copolymers. They usually have increased
corrosion-resistance when compared with a pure alkyd, depending on the modifying
resin. The following alkyd modifications will be taken up individually.
