EonCoat: The Corrosion-Resistant Coating That Alloys Steel
EonCoat is a new type of coating solution that is able to protect steel against corrosion by alloying the top layer of the metal’s surface. But it’s effectiveness goes even further than the eye can see.
The video below shows an experiment with a metal plate. One-third of the plate is bare, while the other two-thirds of the plate have been applied with EonCoat’s anti-corrosive primer; however, the ceramic coating was scraped off one of these thirds 15 minutes before the experiment.
After applying a highly corrosive solution of 50% vinegar and 50% water, and waiting 3 to 5 minutes, the metal plate reveals interesting results. The bare metal rusts and the metal that was applied with EonCoat does not, as expected. But what you might not expect is that the part of the plate that had its coating removed 15 minutes prior to the test does not rust either.
The reason for this is that EonCoat chemically bonds with steel as soon as it comes into contact with it, by alloying the metal’s top microns. This means that, even if the ceramic layer of the coating is compromised, the steel still does not corrode, because that is its second layer of protection.

A Corrosion-Resistant Coating
EonCoat is a new material science and a completely different way to protect steel against corrosion. We call it a corrosion-resistant coating, but the truth is, because it alloys the top layer of steel, it’s not just what you can see with your own eyes that protects the steel.
Putting EonCoat to the Test
In just a few minutes, you’ll see something remarkable: a coating that is protecting the steel — even when it’s been scraped off.
One-third of the plate is bare metal, as you can see here. The other two-thirds of the plate were coated with EonCoat corrosion-resistant coating. But you’ll note that only the center of the plate has the ceramic coating still on it.
That’s because about 15 minutes after we coated the plate, we removed the ceramic coating from part of the plate. The purpose of this is to show you how EonCoat has alloyed the top layer of the steel.
We’ll explain the significance of this after the test.
The Rusting Results
Liberally apply with a solution of 50% vinegar and 50% water. That’s a highly corrosive mix and will rust carbon steel in a matter of minutes. You need to wait 3-5 minutes and you’ll start to see the rust form.
You will, of course, expect that the bare metal will rust. You would also expect that the part that has a corrosion-resistant coating on it not to rust, and you are correct, it does not.
But, normally, when a coating is compromised, cracked, peeled, bubbles up, we call that a failure, because that means the steel can and will rust. But here, you can see that even with the coating removed, the part that was coated with EonCoat does not rust.
Because once EonCoat comes into contact with bare steel, it chemically bonds with the steel. It actually alloys the very top microns of the steel to form a passive alloyed layer that will not corrode.
Once that happens, the ceramic coating that you can actually see is a second form of protection, because the alloyed layer that you can’t see is the first layer of protection. So if that second form of protection cracks or is compromised, it doesn’t matter. The steel beneath is still protected.
