Next Generation of Corrosion-Resistant and Easy-Cleaning Coatings

Gentoo is a transparent coating that is not only waterproof but also repels most oils and solvents. This makes the coating an excellent choice for preventing corrosion, protecting equipment from the elements (mud, snow, etc.), stopping graffiti, and many other applications. It is also able to withstand significant abrasion without sacrificing performance.

How Does it Work?

Gentoo is a dense polymer system that forms a barrier against corrosion initiators. This is due to its low surface energy, high density, and low porosity. The system is conformal, pin-hole-free, and very thin (4-6 microns) compared with traditional polymer coatings but far more dense and durable. The higher density of the system provides an excellent barrier to water and corrosive ions.

Adhesion & Durability

Gentoo has robust adhesion to painted, plated, and bare metallic substrates, as well as glass and surface-primed plastics. The coating has demonstrated excellent resistance to salt spray, UV exposure, and chemical exposure—significant improvements over traditional hydrophobic coatings.

When used on top of other qualified systems, Gentoo further reduces corrosion and extends the lifetime of the barrier system and therefore the coated substrate. This is due to its excellent water- and salt-shedding properties and impact resistance. These properties also significantly reduce the effects of galvanic corrosion of dissimilar metals, which is to say Gentoo is excellent at preventing rust.
