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 recommended applications include drilling rigs, offshore platforms, storage tanks, process vessels, pipelines and related oil and gas equipment.
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.
Salt fog tests and an independent laboratory’s long-term study show that combining Tesla NanoCoatings CNT technology with sacrificial zinc dust allows for a reduction in the zinc load required in the primer. The ZN-CNT formulation also provides an improvement in performance compared to conventional organic zinc-rich systems.
Application is easy, using conventional air-spray, air-assisted airless or airless spray equipment.
Teslan is the world’s most durable corrosion-resistant two-coat protective coating system. Teslan primers and topcoats are recommended for any application where steel or aluminum must withstand rust and corrosion, even in the most extreme environments.
