NAPROM (SBO)

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).SIM Flanders
