What is EonCoat?
EonCoat is an industrial protective coating which is radically different to any other system on the market. With just one coat, you can protect your assets for their entire lifetime. No recoating, no regular downtime, no loss of earnings.
What materials can I protect with EonCoat?
EonCoat is specifically for protecting carbon steel.
What makes it so different to other performance coatings?
EonCoat works by chemically altering the top layer of the carbon steel, making it non-reactive. So, instead of forming a sacrificial layer around the asset, it phosphates the steel, creating a two-micron thick amorphous magnesium iron phosphate layer. Then, to create a reservoir of phosphate corrosion protection, a ceramic layer forms over the alloyed surface.
This two-layer approach to protection outperforms all other market leading steel protection technologies. Tabar testing reveals that EonCoat is up to 9.6 times tougher than epoxies* and 16 times more wear-resistant than polymer paints.
* Tested on a Tabar machine with an abrasion wheel for the measurement of .001” wear, polymer coatings took 75 cycles, epoxies took 125-250 cycles and EonCoat took >1200
What does EonCoat protect against?
First and foremost EonCoat protects against chemical and environmental corrosion and because it is chemically bonded to the surface of the asset, it isn’t susceptible to scratching or abrasion either. Unaltered by real-world industrial conditions, EonCoat has a flame spread rating of zero.
What sort of environments would it work well in?
EonCoat is proven in some of the most hazardous marine, industrial, infrastructure environments worldwide. The energy, municipal and heavy machinery sectors are also heading towards the use of this one-application, fast-return-to-service solution.

EonCoat got the attention it deserved at EUROCORR 2018 in Poland this September. 600 representatives from the Oil, Gas and Coatings Industry attended and many at the Annual Congress of Corrosion have been keeping a watching brief on EonCoat’s developing role in the fight against corrosion. Attendees were fascinated to hear from Chevron’s Senior Advisory for Materials and Corrosion, Benjamin Chaloner-Gill, PhD and learn the results of Chevron’s 3 years of investigation at independent laboratories. Where EonCoat was successfully tested as a coating system in two different regimes – atmospheric corrosion below 100° C and corrosion under insulation (CUI) both at low temperature (less than 100° C) and at higher temperatures (up to 350° C).

EonCoat steel application
Traditional coatings fail to prevent rust from forming on steel for very long.
So how do you stop steel from rusting?
In this video you will see how you can protect your assets for longer and prevent rust by applying EonCoat.
The traditional approach of applying a regular paint on steel, involves putting a barrier coating between the metal surface and the elements.
EonCoat is not a barrier coating, it is a surface treatment that alloys the steel, which prevents the rust from ever developing.
