Corrosion Protection in Winter

The Winter Challenge

During winter, road maintenance crews often use salt and de-icing chemicals to combat icy conditions. While these substances enhance safety on roads, they pose a significant threat to vehicles, infrastructure, and equipment exposed to these harsh winter elements.

Corrosion Resistance

Utilizing sol-gel technology, Gentoo redefines corrosion control. Lab and field testing, including collaborations with the United States Air Force, certify its ability to resist corrosion and extend the lifespan of coated substrates. It stands as a robust defense against galvanic corrosion and excels in shedding water and salt.

Gentoo's Solution

Gentoo's exceptional corrosion resistance is particularly valuable during winter months. The coating creates a robust barrier against corrosive agents like salt, preventing them from causing damage to the metal surfaces of vehicles, bridges, pipelines, and other infrastructure. This protection extends the lifespan of coated assets, reducing the need for frequent maintenance and replacements.

Application Areas

Vehicles and Transportation:

Gentoo shields the exteriors of vehicles, including cars, trucks, and public transportation, from the corrosive effects of road salt and de-icing chemicals.


Bridges, overpasses, and other structural elements that are exposed to winter weather and road treatments benefit from Gentoo's corrosion-resistant properties.

Equipment in Cold Storage: 

Machinery and equipment used in cold storage facilities face challenges from both low temperatures and potential exposure to corrosive substances. Gentoo provides a protective layer, mitigating these risks.

Pipelines and Utilities: 

Gentoo helps protect pipelines and utility infrastructure exposed to winter weather, preventing corrosion and maintaining the integrity of these critical systems.

Outdoor Electronic Components: In various industries, outdoor electronic components such as sensors and communication devices are vulnerable during winter. Gentoo safeguards these components from the corrosive impact of winter conditions.

But Gentoo is more than just corrosion control...

  5. Graffiti Prevention: Acts as a barrier against graffiti, simplifying surface maintenance.

  6. Galvanic Corrosion Defense: Protects against the corrosive effects of dissimilar metals.

  7. UV Exposure Protection: Maintains coating integrity under prolonged UV exposure.

  8. Chemical Resistance: Guards against damage from oils, solvents, and acids.

  9. Versatile Application: Adaptable to various surfaces, providing comprehensive protection.

  10. Adhesion & Durability: Demonstrates robust adhesion and durability against diverse substrates and environmental exposures.

Easy Cleaning

Gentoo is not just a coating; it's a shield against the elements. Applied easily to diverse surfaces, from heavy machinery to sensitive electronics, it forms a hydrophobic and oleophobic barrier. This not only repels water but also thwarts oils, dirt, mud, grime, and even graffiti. The low sliding angle combined with high solvent resistance makes cleaning a breeze, reducing water consumption and effort.

Renew and Protect

Gentoo goes beyond protection; it renews oxidized paint while safeguarding surfaces from abrasion and harsh environments. Its application versatility ensures every nook and cranny is shielded, making it indispensable for the preservation of complex machinery.

Application Versatility

Being a two-part coating, Gentoo offers flexibility in application—flow-coated, dip-coated, HVLP sprayed, or painted on with a brush or roller. It’s lightweight and thin (4-6 microns) coating requires minimal surface preparation, making it efficient and effective.

Gentoo stands strong against most oils, solvents, and acids, providing superior resistance. This chemical resilience enhances its suitability for a wide range of industrial applications.

How Gentoo Works

Gentoo's success lies in its dense polymer system that forms a formidable barrier against corrosion initiators. With low surface energy, high density, and low porosity, this conformal and pinhole-free system provides an excellent defense against water and corrosive ions. Its thin yet dense structure (4-6 microns) sets it apart from traditional polymer coatings.

Target Businesses

Gentoo holds immense potential for businesses across various industries, including:

  • Manufacturing: Machinery and equipment protection.

  • Transportation: Vehicles, trains, and infrastructure.

  • Electronics: Sensitive electronic components and devices.

  • Infrastructure: Bridges, pipelines, and structural elements.
