Our glass flake for manual application coatings is widely used in the anti-corrosion coating industry, and works best when mixed into trowel based applications. ACF-100 is not recommended to be used in coatings requiring spray type applications. We offer finer particles sizes to accommodate spray requirements.

Typical uses:Our high performance additive for manual coatings was developed to form a multi-layer tortuous path for any MVT, significantly reducing the risk from corrosion attack. The most common uses include:

  • Anti-corrosion in chemical plants
  • Liners for water tanks, boiler tanks, floor linings, fish tanks, silos, petroleum tanks, marine cooling pipes
  • Liners for road tankers, containers and vessels, fermentation tanks, reservoirs
  • Bottom plate lining and lower sidewalls for petroleum tanks
  • Pipelines
  • Marine Vessels (Boats, cargo vessels, barges, etc.) coatings - providing durable, long-lasting and robust construction material invulnerable to corrosion and abrasion
  • Automotive Coatings
  • Roof Coatings
  • Coatings of various permanent structures located in oceanic settings, both in the immersion zone and splash zone

Advantages of Glass Flake in Protective Coatings

  • Extend the life of protective coatings
  • Prevention of cracking and peeling
  • Improve wear and corrosion resistance
  • Significantly reduce or eliminate moisture vapor transmission (MVT)
