Corrosion protective coatings (CPC) is applied on the surface to provide protection against the metal corrosion that is caused due to various environmental particles. Corrosion protective coatings prevent the exposure to moisture and other particles present in the surrounding by acting as a barrier between the surface and the moisture. The acid proof layer gives excellent robustness and mechanical integrity property to the metals parts that are widely used across manufacturing industries. Moreover, acid-proof layer also offer resistance against thermal shock, high impact, and mechanical stress to the metallic component.
South Africa Corrosion Protective Coatings & Acid Proof Lining market is estimated to account for around US$ 52,833.9 million in terms of value in the year 2019 and it predicted to grow at a CAGR of 4.2% during the forecast period (2020-2027).
