Anticorrosive coating compositions comprise a binding polymer and an amorphous aluminum phosphate corrosion inhibiting pigment dispersed therein. The coating composition comprises 1 to 25 percent by weight aluminum phosphate. The binding polymer can include solvent-borne polymers, water-borne polymers, solventless polymers, and combinations thereof. The aluminum phosphate is made by combining an aluminum source with a phosphorous source to form an amorphous aluminum phosphate solid condensate. The coating composition is specially engineered to provide a controlled delivery of phosphate anions of 50 to 500 ppm, and has a total solubles content of less than 1500 ppm. The amorphous aluminum phosphate is preferably free of alkali metals and alkaline earth metals. The amorphous aluminum phosphate has an oil absorption of less than 50, and a surface area of less than about 20 m^(2)/g, The coating composition has a water adsorption potential of up to 25% by weight water.

This relates to a processor-implemented method of providing an oil-quality indication. The method includes receiving image data associated with a captured image, wherein the image includes (i) oil sample pixels associated with an oil sample and (ii) calibration color pixels associated with a calibration color. The oil sample pixels are adjusted based on the calibration color pixels. A saturation value and a hue value are determined based on the adjusted oil sample pixels. An oil quality value is determined based on the saturation value and the hue value. The oil quality value is stored in a processor-readable medium.

Antimicrobial chemical compositions comprise an aluminum phosphate (AlP) solid dispersed within a binding polymer, wherein one or more bioactive materials are disposed within AlP forming a bioactive-AlP complex. The complex may comprise the bioactive material chemically bonded with the AlP, physically combined with the AlP, or a combination of both. The complex may be formed according to precipitation, condensation and sol-gel methods of forming. The complex is engineered to provide a controlled delivery of the bioactive material or a constituent thereof upon exposure to moisture to give a desired level of antimicrobial resistance to a film or composite formed from the composition of at least about 30 g/m^(2), and may also provide a desired degree of corrosion resistance through the release of passivating phosphate anion. Such antimicrobial chemical compositions provide an improved degree of active, long-term resistance to a broad range of micro-organisms when compared to known antimicrobial chemical compositions.


AlP composite materials comprise an AlP aggregate core, and a shell disposed partially or entirely over the core and formed from a pigment material, e.g., TiO_(2), having an index of refraction greater than the core, providing an overall index or refraction greater than the core and suited for use as a pigment replacement or extender. The AlP core comprises amorphous AlP, crystalline AlP, or a combination thereof, and can have an average particle size of less than about 30 microns. The TiO_(2 )can have an average grain size less than about 10 microns. The shell can have a layer thickness that is at least about 0.0001 microns. The shell is bonded to the core by a reaction between functional groups of the shell and core. The AlP composite material can be engineered to provide properties in addition to brightness for use as a pigment such as anticorrosion and/or antimicrobial protection.

Anticorrosive coating compositions comprise a binding polymer and an amorphous aluminum phosphate corrosion inhibiting pigment. The composition comprises from about 1 to 25 percent by weight amorphous aluminum phosphate. The amorphous aluminum phosphate has a water adsorption potential of up to about 25 percent by weight water. The composition provides a controlled phosphate delivery of from about 50 to 500 ppm, and preferably of from about 100 to 200 ppm. The composition has a total solubles content of less than about 1,500 ppm. The amorphous aluminum phosphate is preferably substantially free of alkali metals. The amorphous aluminum phosphate is made by combining aluminum hydroxide with phosphoric acid and sodium aluminate. The amorphous aluminum phosphate is treated to reduce the level of unwanted solubles, and the treated amorphous aluminum phosphate is dried at less than about 300C. The composition is used as a primer coat, a mid-coat, and/or a top-coat coating.
