Fuel Cell & Alternative Energy Coatings
The DECC Company applies alternative energy coatings that are chemical and temperature resistant. These corrosion protective coatings perform well in the corrosive environments needed to generate energy. Two of the current systems receiving such coatings are hydrogen and methanol. Alternative energy coatings are the wave of the future.
Here is a selection of the Solvent & Chemical Resistance Values:
|Sodium Hydroxide||50%||Very Good|
|Methyl Ethyl Ketone||100%||Excellent|
Corrosion Protective Coatings
Typical applications of corrosion protective coatings include Hydrogen fuel cells that help shield the base material from corrosion and heat, allowing extended life of the unit. Other applications include battery-packs used for the automotive industry.
A byproduct of generating energy via a fuel cell is corrosion caused by a variety of chemicals. The kind of electrolytes fuel cells employ determines the kind of chemical reaction that takes place in the cell. Chemical resistant coatings can increase the life of the substrate they are applied to, thus improving the overall performance and life of the fuel cell while allowing the use of less exotic metals. If your need involves fuel cells or the new regeneration systems of the diesel industry, our engineering staff will help find the right chemical protective coating for you.

Noise Reduction - Electric Car
Read about the Tesla Car which we had the pleasure of applying a coating on for noise reduction. Electric cars don't have the sound of a combustion engine to mask the creaking sounds of normal driving.
