The Corrosion of Navy and Marine vehicles costs approximately $3.6 billion per year, which is 27% of total annual maintenance costs. Meanwhile, anti-corrosion materials have traditionally included toxic hexavalent chromium, a notorious health and environment degrader. The active aluminum-rich primer for corrosion protection offers general corrosion resistance equal to or better than currently available primers. The primer provides electro-chemical protection to aluminum, steel, and other metallic objects on which it is applied while withstanding severe operating environments. Applications for this primer include transportation, infrastructure, aviation, and facilities and vehicles where protection against corrosion and weather elements is necessary.
