Permanent corrosion protection is more effective and less expensive than standard heavy-zinc galvanize
A leading coil coater and manufacturer of proprietary coating chemistries has recently introduced InterCoat®ChemGuard, a new type of corrosion protection for galvanized steel.
InterCoat®ChemGuard uses a new type of coating technology that utilizes covalent bonds and enhances the effectiveness of zinc and substantially improves corrosion protection on galvanized steel. Standard practice to protect metal from corrosion for approximately the last 70 years has been to coat it with zinc. Heavier zinc coatings have normally been applied to provide longer protection. This was the industry standard practice, until now.
InterCoat®ChemGuard, instead, reacts with the zinc to form a permanent, covalent bond on the surface of the metal. The product is applied over a light layer of zinc, which reacts with the zinc to dramatically improve its corrosion protection properties. The bond which is formed at the molecular level cannot be washed or worn off. This is different and more effective than the typical barrier coating. This revolutionary process allows bending, stamping, post-painting and even shearing, while providing self-healing characteristics that help protect newly exposed zinc that naturally occurs during secondary processing.
InterCoat®ChemGuard is a major development for any user looking to extend the corrosion resistance of galvanized steel. The product is RoHS compliant and continues to protect during stamping, roll forming, shearing and is weldable. With a low coefficient of friction, it actually enhances these processes. InterCoat®ChemGuard is designed to be applied on the galvanize line or, for custom formulas, by the original coil coater and developer of this unique compound.
InterCoat®ChemGuard offers significant cost savings because it allows for lighter zinc to form the bond. It is not necessary to apply heavy zinc; it reduces the need for zinc coatings heavier than G30, in many applications on the market today. The product also eliminates the need for temporary corrosion protection coatings, often used in shipping and materials storage, including hexavalent chrome, a known carcinogen, making it more environmentally friendly for all building, architectural, transportation and consumer appliance applications.
It is applicable to many industries, including automotive, aerospace, construction, electrical conduit, wall studs, furniture, fixtures, appliances, outdoor and highway railing, agricultural, lawn and garden and other products using galvanize.

Prior to this promotion, Mike served as Director of Sales & Marketing for Chemcoaters and Eco Green, spearheading the efforts on both companies’ sales initiatives, key account management, sales strategy and new business development. He works closely with the company’s ad and PR agency on brand building and development of the messaging to the mills, service centers and OEMs in the industry. Recently, he developed a highly successful campaign for the Chemcoaters coil washing service, using a “Car Wash” theme he developed with the agency. Mike was also honored in 2016 by the Metal Service Center Institute for his innovative and clever social media campaigns.
Mike and wife Jill live in Tinley Park, Illinois, have five children and six grandchildren. They are members of Harvest Bible Chapel in Rolling Meadows, Illinois.

“G40 hot dip galvanized with Intercoat® ChemGuard will substantially outperform G235 and offer a much lower overall cost,” states director of sales & marketing Mike Tieri
In a forceful announcement made today, Chemcoaters, Inc. (Gary, Indiana) directly addressed the EQ (Equivalent Coating) controversy with the statement above, attributed to Mike Tieri, Director of Sales & Marketing for the company, a leading green coil coater based in Gary, Indiana.
Elaborating, Mr. Tieri cited the following example.
“For 16 ga coil (0.056 specifically), the zinc coating to a G30 thickness is currently adding $1.90 cwt. By contrast, G235 thickness zinc coating is $11.10 cwt. To apply our Intercoat® ChemGuard to G30 is no more than $4.00 cwt, so the economics are unquestionable. Since G30 is commercially available from many more sources, it means service centers, OEM’s and processors can use a lighter and obviously less-expensive zinc coating thickness, have a metal product that is considerably easier to form and shape, reduce SKU’s, increase inventory turns, increase corrosion resistance (see graphic) and save money immediately. Doesn’t get much better,” Tieri mused. He further noted that this example is not always applicable, given the size of the coils supplied to Chemcoaters.
The InterCoat® ChemGuard product can also remain bare, be painted or welded, plus it’s RoHS compliant and can even be tinted in a spectrum of colorations, according to Tieri.
Chemcoaters, Inc. is a leading supplier of various coil coatings and cleaning services for the coiled metals market. The company’s patented InterCoat® ChemGuard 300 coating is formulated with trivalent chrome vs. hexavalent chrome, making it environmentally friendly in all building, architectural, transportation and consumer appliance applications. InterCoat® ChemGuard 300 coating has superior corrosion resistance, as well. Chemcoaters offers a presentation that evidences this fact to all interested parties.

Family of high-performance, corrosion-inhibiting coatings, used as stand-alone coating or hybrid pre-treatment
Effective immediately, InterCoat® ChemGuard is now a registered trademark of Eco-Green Coatings, LLC a division of Chemcoaters, Inc., the Gary, Indiana-based coil coater in service to metals producers, service centers and OEMs nationwide. This announcement was made today by company president Bill Capizzano at Chemcoaters headquarters.
The InterCoat® ChemGuard family of stand-alone coatings and hybrid pretreatments is highlighted by the ChemGuard 300 Series, a RoHS-compliant (hexavalent chrome-free) coating that features the unique chemistry of trivalent chromium vs. the standard hexavalent chromium used for decades in the metals coating industry. With comparable or, in many applications, superior corrosion resistance to hexavalent chrome treatments, this coating bridges the long-standing divide between performance and environmentally-friendly product in the market.
InterCoat® ChemGuard is a highly corrosion-inhibiting and adhesion-enhancing coating technology that creates a permanent covalent reaction with any zinc or zinc-alloy coated substrate. Used as a hybrid pretreatment, the product enhances corrosion resistance in a 20%-50% thinner coating onto the substrate, while exceeding the prevalent corrosion standards in industry, ASTM A1003/A1003M.
Since its development in 2011, the InterCoat® ChemGuard family has grown to include a RoHS compliant trivalent chrome product with many color tinted versions of the product now available.
Used as a pretreatment, InterCoat® ChemGuard is an ideal complement to pre- and post-paint, powder and other surface coating requirements.
Originally developed for the metal stud and other building/construction applications, InterCoat® ChemGuard coatings are now used extensively in end products for the transportation (automotive, bus, truck and RV), consumer products (appliance, power-gen, and HVAC), agricultural and off-highway vehicle markets, among others.
Based in Gary, Indiana, Chemcoaters, Inc. is a leading supplier of green coil coatings, as well as traditional prepaint and protective coil coatings such as dry film lubes and other RoHS-compliant coatings. Virtually no VOCs or HAPs are present in the process.
