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.
The NAPROM SBO project was linked to both the ISHECO project (SBO) and the SHREC project (ICON).
This project is part of:
Self-healing engineering materials: cementitious, polymeric and coating materials with the ability to heal damage autonomously.
