HALOX® 570

HALOX® 570 is an organic corrosion inhibitor designed for use in waterborne industrial and decorative coatings to provide flash rust and long-term corrosion protection on metal surfaces. HALOX® 570 is especially effective along weld seams and, in some cases, can also be used in solvent-based coatings and UV-cured systems. HALOX® 570 may be used in formulations based on waterborne acrylic latexes and co-polymers, styrene/acrylic latexes, acrylate epoxy esters, 2-pack epoxy systems, alkyds, alkyd/acrylic blends, and 1 or 2-pack polyurethane. HALOX® 570 may be used in both waterborne primers and direct-to-metal topcoats. In direct-to-metal coatings, HALOX® 570 has a minimal effect on gloss reduction.

HALOX® Organic Corrosion Inhibitors are effective against flash rusting and in-can corrosion prevention, though the benefits of using these products does not end there. Our HALOX® Organic Corrosion Inhibitors are ideally suited for high gloss, thin film, and clear coat applications. They also provide superior synergy when used in combination with inorganic corrosion inhibitors in traditional coatings. To achieve desired performance of your resin system proper selection of HALOX® Inhibitors in essential.

  • HALOX® 570 is a powder. It is a dual flash rust and corrosion inhibitor.
  • Developed for weld seams it provides both flash and galvanic rust inhibition

Technical Details & Test Data


There are several methods of incorporating HALOX® 570. The preferred method is to make a pre-neutralized concentrate in water using an amine that is volatile under your curing conditions, then post-add or add to the letdown.
A neutralization example:

HALOX® 570 (30% solution) Weight
De-ionized Water 62.8
28% Ammonium Hydroxide 7.2
HALOX® 570 30.0
Total 100.0
  • Stir slowly, adjust pH 8-9
  • Alternatively, a concentrate can be made in a co-solvent according to the solubility data above, then post-add or add to the letdown. It may also be added to a pigment grind as a solid.
  • In general, add the aqueous concentrate or co-solvent solution to the amine/amide part of a 2 pack epoxy or to the polyol of a 2 pack polyurethane.
  • If possible, avoid systems with acetic acid-use surfactant stabilized hardeners instead.
  • If you are removing a heavy metal based anti-corrosive pigment, compensate for its removal with an extender (filler) so that the ratio PVC:CPVC remains constant. However, HALOX® 570 can be used in conjunction with anti-corrosive pigments, preferably based on compounds defined as non-toxic or reportable under applicable regulations. Check compatibility, shelf life (e.g. accelerated at high temperature), cure and pot-life, if applicable. Other formulation variables may also be optimized, for example, dispersants, surfactants, and PVC:CPVC ratio.
Factors to Consider while Creating Coatings Solutions
  • Combine the inhibitors utilize synergy of multiple mechanisms to achieve desired performance.
    • Inorganic/Flash Rust
    • Inorganic/Inorganic
    • Inorganic/Organic
  • Optimize Solubility of the inhibitor. Synergize short term and long term corrosion inhibitors based on their solubility.
  • Inhibitor Concentration avoid direct weight to weight replacements. Beneficial to optimize usage level.
  • Substrate specific corrosion inhibitor selection can be substrate dependent.
