A protective coating is a layer of material that is applied to the surface of any material for resistance (to prevent damage). The surface on which it is coated can be metal or non-metallic. Materials commonly used in non-metallic protective coatings include polymers, epoxy and polyurethane. There are different types of protective coatings when it comes to metals; there are four types of protective coatings, barrier, sacrificial and composite. Barrier coatings protect the metal from contact with the metal underlying water, oxygen and electrolytes. Inhibitory coatings contain chemicals that obviously prevent damage.
A definition for protective coatings is that it is a simple way to reduce damage by limiting the metal’s exposure to corrosive atmospheres. It is a very common protective coating as paint, but also uses tar, pitch, bitumen and plastic. This is nothing other than a galvanizing coating, where zinc is applied to iron or steel. Commonly used are protective coatings, that helps preserve works of cultural significance, such as exterior sculptors and architectural elements. Although the damage caused by certain reason is much higher than with conventional coating applications, the same types of protective coatings are used in such cases.
Coatings help to protect any material (extending its life span with application). There are also some coatings that are specifically designed for certain materials or conditions. Others can be used on a variety of surfaces or conditions. Coatings are also used for decorative purposes, or in other words, all types of protective coatings provide protection against damage such as surface rusting and discoloration.
