China makes breakthrough in anti-corrosion coating

Updated 2017-09-17 15:30:35 Xinhua

China has achieved a major breakthrough in heavy-duty anti-corrosion coating by using modified graphene, according to the Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS).

The results were achieved by scientists led by researcher Wang Liping and academician Xue Qunji through years of research and development.

Identified by the Chinese Society for Corrosion and Protection, the new coating can be used in the state grid, petrochemical engineering, and marine engineering and equipment.

It will change the monopoly by foreign products in heavy-duty anti-corrosion coating in China and protect engineering equipment in the country's tropical marine areas.

According to the CAS, China has an anti-corrosion coating market worth 200 billion yuan (30.6 billion U.S. dollars), including heavy-duty coating with an average annual growth rate of more than 20 percent.
