Abstract : A water-displacing paint is disclosed for coating metallic surfaces in humid environments to prevent corrosion. The paint comprises controlled proportions of a silicone alkyd resin to serve as a binder and physical barrier, solvents including ethyl acetate, aromatic mineral spirits and 1,1,1 trichlorotrifluorethane for ensuring water immiscibility, a petroleum sulfonate to inhibit corrosion and aid surface absorption, and an orgnotitanate of isopropyl tri-titanate to promote surface adhesion. Selected amounts of titanium dioxide and zinc molybdate are included as pigments in one effective example of the paint to provide it a white color. Alternate colors may be produced conventionally by adding standard tinting pigments in amounts sufficient to yield the desired color. (Author)
