There are values in life that deserve special protection. Many of them remain hidden from most people and only become apparent when they are missing. For over 125 years, we at DÖRKEN have been protecting precisely those things that are enormously important and at the same time often remain invisible: from the smallest components to entire buildings. Dive into our world: Discover Expertise!
With the solutions in the division of DÖRKEN Industrial Coatings, we combine the protection of components with functional properties - or in short: LIQUID HIGHTECH.
In the Industrial Coatings division, everything revolves around functional coatings - an exciting field. Whether it's corrosion protection for metals in the automotive sector, in the wind energy industry, in electromobility or for rail vehicles. Sustainable products with a lasting effect. Innovative technologies in the field of high-performance corrosion protection: zinc flake coating, electroplating, coil coating and special solutions.
The right solution is the one that is best suited to your challenges and objectives. DÖRKEN Coatings offers you a variety of innovative corrosion protection coating solutions:
For more than 30 years, the experts of Dörken MKS have developed effective systems for corrosion protection and are glad to share their in-depth knowledge with you.
What forms of corrosion are there?
Corrosion occurs in various forms, depending on the environmental conditions, these include:
Active or passive corrosion protection can be used to protect a material against these and other forms of corrosion (hydrogen-induced stress corrosion cracking, hydrogen corrosion, bimetallic corrosion, etc).
What is active corrosion protection? ‘Active corrosion protection’ is the term used when measures are taken to directly influence and block the reaction processes. These include all protective treatments of metallic surfaces that have an active corrosion-inhibiting effect. There are different procedures for this:
What is passive corrosion protection?
In passive corrosion protection, the material is separated by a coating in front of the aggressive element (air, water, acid). Possibilities for the formation of a protective layer include:
Although corrosion can never be stopped completely, corrosion protection will slow down the process – and with a suitable coating solution it can even be slowed down considerably.
As a leading supplier of microlayer corrosion protection systems, we develop the ideal solution for reliable protection against corrosion. We support customers from industries such as:
