About Ecosparc

Ecosparc is not a paint.

 

Ecosparc, when added in tiny amounts, supercharges coatings currently used to protect steel assets from corrosion. 

The benefits of Ecosparc including cost and emissions savings are the direct result of Ecosparc extending the time between maintenance events by 18-21%.

Ecosparc is the flagship product of Sparc Technologies (ASX:SPN). Sparc is pioneering new technologies in coatings and composites, green hydrogen and sodium-ion batteries to help deliver a more sustainable world.

The Dual Anti-Corrosion Mechanism

Corrosion generally commences when a protective coating has been damaged. e.g. cracking. 

ecosparc enhanced coatings: 

Delay coating cracking. This delays the onset of corrosion.

When damage does finally occur, ecosparc further limits corrosion spread by >25%.

Significantly increasing the time between maintenance events.
