Abstract :

Nowadays, the major problem of oil industries is related to the internal corrosion and the deposit formation in pipelines used in transportation around the world. In order to extend the useful life of this equipment, the development of new research related to anti-corrosion coating is necessary. Thus, polymer-clay nano-composites were obtained using montmorillonite (MMT) and the Poly Methyl Methacrylate (PMMA) as organic phase. This product can be used as adhesive and as coating (paints and varnishes) with high corrosion resistance properties and can be applied on the metal structures of oil industries. The organophilization was performed with a quaternary salt known as ├ó┬?┬?Dodigen├ó┬?┬?. The used clay was the reagent grade Brasgel. The developed coating presented effective barrier properties, hindering the penetration of corrosive agents toward metallic substrates.
