  • Publication number: 20180318874
    Abstract: The present invention provides a water-based coating and/or coating system that can be used to form sag resistant wet layers or coatings on a wide range of substrates. The coating system is particularly effective for protecting metal-containing substrates, such as intermodal cargo containers, against corrosion. As an overview, the present invention provides water-based compositions suitable to form primer coats on substrates. Desirably, the primer incorporates a high level of one or more CAS agents for excellent sag resistance while drying in a broad range of relative humidity environments. Alternatively, modifications can be made to control temperature and humidity during spray application and drying as a way to increase sag resistance of the coating.

  • Publication number: 20180066146
    Abstract: A one-part, storage-stable, air-dryable, latex-coatable waterborne film-forming coating composition has dispersed therein sufficient conductive material to provide an autoweldable hardened shop primer layer when applied to metal components. The thus-primed components may be welded together using automated arc welding equipment without having to remove the coating composition at the weld site. The conductive material desirably causes little or no airborne emission of unsafe quantities of heavy metals or other harmful substances when the primer is volatilized or combusted during welding.

  • Patent number: 9815083
    Abstract: The present invention provides a water-based coating and/or coating system used to form sag resistant wet layers or coatings on a wide range of substrates. The coating system is effective for protecting metal-containing substrates, such as intermodal cargo containers, against corrosion. As an overview, the present invention provides water-based compositions as primer coats on substrates, and methods for applying the same to substrates. The method includes steps of applying a water-based paint to the interior surfaces of a substrate and drying the substrate by continuously forcing heated air onto the substrate as it moves through a drying chamber. Desirably, the primer incorporates a high level of one or more CAS agents for excellent sag resistance while drying in a broad range of relative humidity environments. Alternatively, modifications can be made to control temperature and humidity during spray application and drying as a way to increase sag resistance of the coating.
