NAPROM is short for Novel Active PRotection systems on Metals.
The objective of the SBO project NAPROM was to develop novel active corrosion protection coatings for metals utilizing self-healing organic coatings and corrosion inhibitors, to increase coating life-time and improve active corrosion protection. Key research topics were:
- Self-healing polymers and supramolecular materials
- Corrosion inhibitors and incorporation methods
- Development of combined active corrosion protection coatings
- Accelerated testing methods for lifetime prediction.
