The effect of hydrodynamic cavitation on performance of the alkaline aluminosilicate coatings for metal structures

Sergii GUZII 1, Pavel KRIVENKO 1


Load-bearing metal structures working in atmospheric conditions are exposed to corrosion. Known-in-the art paint-and-lacquer protective coatings can provide protection of metal for rather short period of time (5…10 years). These structures can be effectively protected by more advanced coatings of new generation, namely: alkaline aluminosilicate binder-based coatings of barrier type. These binders differ from the known-in-the-art binding materials by formation in their hydration products of zeolite-like minerals and feldspathoids. The paper discusses principles laid down in formulating the binder composition in the (хК, уNa)2OAl2O3nSiO2mH2O system, target synthesis of hydration products of the binder matrix under influence of dynamic of the binder matrix in cavitation, optimal parameter order to synthesis of cavitation treatment aimed at nanostructuring of zeolite-like and hydromica phases after solidification. These coatings exhibit high corrosion resistance, high adhesion to metal substrate and durability results of restoration works that had been carried out in December 2010 of the Big Bell Tower of the Kiev Petchersk Lavra in order to protect corroded metal surfaces by applying the aluminosilicate binder-based coatings, the major constituent (binder) of which was represented by (0.72Na2O+0.28K2O)1.5Al2O3(4.56)SiO217.5H2O are discussed in details. In 2016, after 6 years of service in high humidity conditions and other aggressive exposures, the coated metal structures were examined and no sign of corrosion of metal substrate and damage of the applied coating was found.
