  8. "The Chemical Resistance Chart" by CoreKote 2000™.

    A list of over 90 tested contaminants against which CoreKote 2000® withstands corrosion. (There may be others still yet untested.)
  9. "Comparison of Heat Exchanger Corrosion-Retardant Ratings" by CoreKote 2000™.

    A comparison of the properties of 5 coatings purported to offer protection of heat exchangers from corrosion.
  10. "Selection Guide: Environmental Corrosion Protection" - Carrier Study on Coatings for Heat Exchangers, by Carrier Corporation, April, 2006.

    Laboratory testing of e-Coating by Carrier and its conclusion that e-Coating is, by far, the best available technology to protect heat exchangers from corroding.
  11. Carrier Prohesion Cycle Test Results with added note by CoreKote 2000™, 2003.

    A part of the Carrier study showing that, after 100 hundred hours of an aggressive corrosion testing (Prohesion Test), that e-Coated units retain 100% of their ability to transfer heat.
  12. Magnified Image and Diagram of e-Coated Joint from Carrier Study, 2003.

    A part of the Carrier study that shows a close-up photographic image of an e-Coated tube-to-fin joint.
  13. "The Valeo™ Heat Exchanger Study" SAE Paper 920180 - Valeo Heat Exchanger Corrosion Study & 10-year Life Expectancy of E-Coated Heat Exchangers.

    A 100+ radiator unit test performed by Valeo, a large manufacturer of heat exchangers, in conjunction with the Copper Development Association, which concludes that e-Coating is the best available technology to retard corrosion on heat exchangers. It measures: rates of corrosion, air-pressure drop, loss of heat transfer (from the e-Coating's film thickness), cost analysis, environmental impact, and process impact in heat exchangers. (The original Valeo study without highlights, unedited.)
