EonCoat: A Fundamentally Different Approach

Traditional industrial coatings only delay the onset of corrosion. EonCoat’s patented formula goes a step further by chemically bonding to steel. Unlike polymer coatings, EonCoat prevents corrosive elements from penetrating the alloy layer. This inorganic steel coating contains no carbon molecules and is a chemically bonded phosphate ceramic. EonCoat is exothermic and forms at room temperature.

Phosphate Ceramic Steel Coating

EonCoat takes a user-friendly and highly effective approach to protecting steel from corrosion. This phosphate ceramic steel coating is easy to apply — simply spray EonCoat through any standard industrial pump system. Two components, an acid and a base, combine before contact with carbon steel.  

Upon contact with EonCoat, the surface of the steel phosphates. An amorphous layer of iron magnesium phosphate forms. This true alloy layer, only 2 microns thick, serves as the first line of defense in preventing the steel from corroding. Learn more about the alloyed iron phosphate layer.

On top of the passive alloy, a white ceramic layer forms. This layer, much thicker than the alloy layer, is measured at 20 mils. This layer serves as a phosphate reservoir, allowing the steel to self-cure by maintaining the alloy that is chemically bonded to the steel. Learn more about the ceramic layer.

The inorganic steel coating technology behind EonCoat just makes sense. A phosphate ceramic steel coating that prevents corrosive materials from ever reaching the steel is the ultimate way to protect it.
