TESLAN® 1101 Zinc CNT Primer
Category: Coatings - metal

Teslan® 1101 ZN-CNT Low VOC Primer is formulated for direct application to abrasive blasted steel surfaces. It is a solvent-based, two-component zinc and carbon nanotube (CNT) epoxy-polyamide primer designed to protect steel in severe offshore and coastal topside environments.

Typical Use:

Typical recommended applications include drilling rigs, offshore platforms, storage tanks, process vessels, pipelines and related oil and gas equipment.

Apparent use of Nanotechnology: Carbon Nanotubes (CNTs)
Reason for Inclusion:

"Teslan 1101 primer incorporates CNTs with sacrificial zinc dust, which results in enhanced durability, increased protection from impact and mechanical damage, and superior corrosion protection. This primer can be directly topcoated without application of an intermediate epoxy or urethane coating." -Retrieved 2/16/2021 from https://teslanano.com/products/ (see Product Data Sheet)
