- Inhibispheres® are porous silica particles containing encapsulated corrosion inhibitors. Their payload is released by diffusion through the porous silica matrix.
- The spheres can be easily introduced in coating formulations. First you need to mill them into the paint using a bead mill or basket mill. Once you achieved a Hegman grind of 7, you can spray paint them onto a clean substrate.
- When the coating is damaged, water penetrates inside the coating, triggering the release of the inhibitor from the spheres.
- The inhibitor diffuses rapidly to the metal surface and stop corrosion.
