Coating steel and aluminum for Marine application



September 2, 2010

Dear Ted and the finishing.com forum.

Your site is causing miracles in my project and things that have never moved are now moving!

My company designed and assemble a stabilized antenna for the merchant shipping industry. That means that tankers, container ships and even car carriers and bulk (aka dirty) ships buy our antenna. It is marine, all weather (including sand storms). yummy!

What is your view on how to cost effectively protect steel 1018 and aluminum A356-T6 to
withstand these conditions powerfully?

Cost is, of course, a consideration and we are willing to look at more expensive solutions.

Looking forward to your response.

Titanium based PVD coatings are known to provide corrosion protection. Shape, size and quantity are some important considerations. One has to optimise the coating for each application.
