  • Publication number: 20120009340
    Abstract: The invention relates to a method for producing deformable corrosion protection layers on a metallic surface and to use of the method. In order to create an economical process for cathodic corrosion protection of metal for a broad range of applications, the invention proposes a method for producing deformable corrosion protection lavers on a metallic surface, consisting of the following steps: a) Mixing 5 to 95 wt. % metallic magnesium, zinc, aluminum or titanium particles, or mixtures or alloys containing at least one of these metals, in the form of pigments, powders, pastes (flakes) or pellets with 5 to 95 wt. % of at least one metal compound, wherein a reaction between the metal particles and metal compound(s) results in surface-modified metal particles; b) Applying the resulting surface-modified metal particles to the metallic surface; c) Hardening the layer produced from the surface-modified metal particles at temperatures between room temperature and 350° C.

  • Publication number: 20100175794
    Abstract: The invention relates to a process for producing an active anti-corrosion coating on steel components. In order to develop an active anti-corrosion coating that can be applied on an industrial scale using conventional means (e.g. dipping, spraying or flooding) and is intended for hot-formed and, in particular, press-hardened steel parts provided with antiscaling means, the invention proposes a process comprising the following process steps: a. Using a steel element provided with an antiscaling layer; b. Annealing the steel element at a temperature above 600° C. in an annealing furnace for the purpose of hardening, semi-hot or hot forming or press hardening and thus producing a reaction layer; c. Applying an anti-corrosion coating to the annealed reaction layer.
