Researchers Achieve Parallel Arrangement of Graphene in Organic Anticorrosive Coating

Posted By Graphene Council, Friday, July 10, 2020
The marine functional materials group led by Prof. WANG Liping at the Ningbo Institute of Materials Technology and Engineering (NIMTE) of the Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS), has successfully implemented the directional alignment of graphene nanosheets in organic polymer protective coatings.

This parallel arrangement of nanosheets can give full play to the barrier effect of graphene, thereby enhancing the anticorrosion of organic coatings. The study was published in Chemical Engineering Journal. 

Organic polymer protective coating is one of the most extensively employed and effective anticorrosion strategies for engineering and equipment. However, during the long-term service in the harsh marine environment, corrosive media (such as H2O, O2, Cl-, etc.) will have a strong permeability to the organic coating, resulting in the interface peeling of the coating and the serious corrosion of the substrate. 

Graphene nanosheets with high aspect ratio can effectively enhance their long-term corrosion resistance due to their excellent barrier properties, good chemical stability and antioxidant properties. In particular, the parallel arrangement of graphene in the resin and the optimization and regulation of the structure have always been the core technologies in this field, which are still in urgent need of revolution. 

Through simple dopamine oxidative self-polymerization and ionization reaction, researchers at NIMTE successfully obtained a novel cationic dopamine-reduced graphene oxide (DRGO+) nanosheet as a filler for epoxy coating.

By virtue of the presence of -NH3+ in dopamine coated on graphene, the DRGO+ nanosheets showed excellent dispersion in water-based epoxy emulsion for more than 45 days without precipitation, and could be self-aligned parallel arrangement in the composite coating under the electric field. 

The parallel arrangement of nanosheets immensely improved the barrier effect of graphene, and significantly extended the diffusion path of the corrosive medium, thereby reducing the corrosion rate of the organic coating. 

In addition, -NH3+ on the surface of the new cationic DRGO+ nanosheets could adsorb electrons and Cl-, eliminate local galvanic corrosion, and form a dense passivation layer on the steel surface. 

This work highlights the potential route for the large-scale fabrication of coatings with extraordinary long-term corrosion resistance.

Global Graphene Group Adds More REACH-Certified Products

Posted By Graphene Council, Thursday, July 2, 2020
Global Graphene Group (G3) has finalized certification for its second and third products with the European Union’s Registration, Evaluation, Authorization and Restriction of Chemicals (REACH). G3’s PS and PDE products join their previously approved PDR products that were REACH certified earlier this year.

G3’s Gi-SL-B series single layer graphene oxide dispersed in water (N002-PS) is now REACH certified. N002-PS contains oxygen-containing chemical groups on the graphene basal plane. It is dispersible in water and available in two standard concentrations at 0.5 wt% and 1 wt%. It possesses polar functional groups and it is electrically and thermally insulating. Potential applications are conductive coatings, wastewater and water filtration, thin films, packaging, biosensors and much more.

G3’s Gi-PW-B050 series few layer graphene oxide powder (N002-PDE) also finalized its REACH certification. N002-PDE is a high-density single layer graphene powders with high oxygen content on its surface, high aspect ratio, and high specific surface area. Potential applications are paints/coatings, composites, defense, military and more.

“Our N002-PDR is the building block for several of our applications including conductive coating and thermal management,” said G3’s Nathan Holliday, Technical Marketing Manager. “Our PDE is a key material in our solutions portfolio for several applications, including paint and coatings, and nano-intermediate solutions.”

“Our team is focused on actively finalizing our REACH certification for our thermal management related products for consumer electronic applications now,” said Holliday.

G3 is registered with REACH under Graphene Oxide to ship 1 to 10 metric tons of its N002-PS and N002-PDE products into the EU annually with C.S.B. GmbH., the only representative for G3 in the EU. The REACH certification for this product secures G3 the right to market the product in Europe.

REACH is a regulation of the European Union, adopted to improve the protection of human health and the environment from the risks that can be posed by chemicals, while enhancing the competitiveness of the EU chemicals industry. It also promotes alternative methods for the hazard assessment of substances in order to reduce the number of tests on animals. REACH establishes procedures for collecting and assessing information on the properties and hazards of substances.

G3 is also a proud member of the REACH graphene consortium, taking an active role in how graphene solutions are handled in Europe.

Global First as Talga Graphene Coating Begins Commercial-Scale Trial on Ocean-Going Cargo Vessel

Posted By Graphene Council, Thursday, April 23, 2020
Advanced battery anode materials and graphene additives provider Talga Resources Ltd is pleased to announce the commencement of a commercial scale trial of a Talga graphene-enhanced coating applied to a 33,000t container ship. The result is expected to be a range of environmental and economic benefits, which for marine applications includes improved corrosion resistance, decreased metallic paint loss into oceanic ecosystems and increased efficiency through lowering dry-docking cycles.

Believed to be the world’s largest single application of graphene, the 700 m2 coating of the cargo vessel’s hull is part of advanced testing of Talga’s functionalised graphene (Talphene®) additive as a performance booster for existing commercial marine coatings (part of the global 54 million tonne per annum paint and coating market1). The commercial-scale application follows completion of in-house development and patent pending technology that successfully translates graphene’s exceptional mechanical properties into paint and coatings. The result is expected to be a range of environmental and economic benefits, which for marine applications such as shipping and offshore infrastructure includes improved corrosion resistance, decreased metallic paint loss into oceanic ecosystems and increased efficiency through lowering dry-docking cycles.

The freshly coated ship is now at sea and over the coming 12-18 months the Talphene-coated area will be evaluated in the harsh real-life conditions of global cargo shipping.

Talga Managing Director, Mr Mark Thompson: “The maritime coating sector is a very large market and well suited to use of our Talphene® graphene additives for improved environmental and economic outcomes. Additionally, by successfully taking this new product from the laboratory to commercial scale application on a 33,000 tonne ship, being tested across global marine environments, we are showcasing our graphene’s real-world potential as a bulk industrial product.” Marine coatings market

Within the global ~54 million tonne per annum paint and coatings market2, the marine coatings segment is projected to grow to USD$12 Billion by 2024. Drivers for new coating technologies include environmental and regulatory demands, fuel efficiency, construction costs (pre-fabrication) and maintenance costs. Growth in emerging economies such as China, India and Brazil are large volume drivers while in terms of value, the Asia Pacific marine coatings market is projected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period3. Key players operating in the marine coatings market include Hempel (Denmark), Jotun (Norway), AkzoNobel (Netherlands), PPG Industries (US), Sherwin-Williams (US), Chugoku Marine Paints (Japan), Nippon Paint (Japan), Kansai Paint (Japan), Axalta (US), and BASF Coatings (Germany).

Talphene® coating product development

Coatings are one of Talga’s key target products due to the large volume market and graphene’s potential to provide substantial new levels of performance and environmental sustainability. For maritime applications, Talga’s additive development has included multi-stage testing to optimise graphene loadings (i.e. quantities) and Talga’s unique patent-pending dispersion technology for epoxy based commercial primer coating systems. Testing by Talga included industry accepted ASTM prescribed Salt Fog Test (ASTM B117) where steel panels coated with epoxy primer containing Talphene additive showed improved corrosion protection performance compared to ‘state of the art’ commercial systems currently used world-wide in large volumes.

Further evaluation included mechanical performance tests, carried out to ASTM standard by the highly recognised research organisation The Welding Institute (TWI), as the coated surfaces of ships and maritime infrastructure are exposed to considerable abrasion and mechanical damage during service. The results showed a significant improvement in primer performance, including greater adhesion to the substrate (by ~7%), greater interlayer adhesion to the subsequent (antifouling) coating systems (by ~14%) and consistent improvement in abrasion resistance.

These improvements in performance were a notable outcome for this highly optimised industry, indicating that graphene’s exceptional mechanical properties translated into the coating system and warranted commercial-scale trials.

Commercial ship application & trial details

Based on the successful lab results, plans were drawn up for a major commercial scale application and sea trial. A 2-part epoxy based commercial coating system was purchased and mixed with the Talphene additive before dispatch to the ship management company for application during vessel dry docking (carried out every ~5 years for ships this size). The test areas along the ship’s starboard side, both below the water line and above in contact-wear sites, were blast cleaned to remove prior paint systems before the Talphene-enhanced primer coating was applied (next to a test reference coating without Talphene) in two coats, using manual spray systems. A major challenge of the product development was to translate the positive lab-scale tests into practical, large-volume use by on-site commercial applicators. The successful application of the Talphene-enhanced coating without any adverse effect in terms of stability in resin, application, curing and surface features is a highly positive step forward in the commercialisation process. The test areas have been over-coated with the standard topcoats used on the rest of the vessel and marked to ensure identification during service. Periodic inspection will be carried out over the next 12-18 months to determine real world performance.

Next steps

Talga intends to continue development of this Talphene additive for marine coatings under its range of paint and coating additives now trademarked as Talcoat™. The next steps include a trial of the additive as an after-market product, to be mixed into the coatings on-site by the commercial applicators, as opposed to being dispersed by Talga prior to despatch. Talga has also identified a range of potential commercial partners and commenced discussions, under NDA, regarding the incorporation of Talcoat products into their existing and new coating product lines4. The company notes that these negotiations are preliminary, and further updates will be released as and when any definitive commercial agreements are reached.
