US - Corrosion Research - Academia Industry Collaboration - Eastern Michigan University professor helps commercializing green protective

An Eastern Michigan University professor has partnered with a Michigan-based company to help commercialize “green” protective coating developed by his research team at the university.

Vijay Mannari, along with a group of students and other researchers at EMU’s Coatings Research Institute, located in the College of Technology, have focused their efforts on developing sustainable polymers and coatings that use renewable sources. One of the products Mannari’s team developed is a chromate-free, anti-corrosive pretreatment for metals, a protective coating that inhibits rust.

“The product is an innovative system based on Sol-Gel technology that is much safer than existing products, yet comparable in performance,” said Mannari.
