The green corrosion inhibitor is used in epoxy coating system by extraction of turmeric in dimethyl formamide (DMF). The major component extracted is curcumin. Three concentrations have been studied for anticorrosive performance i.e., X, 2X and 4X. Among this X based concentration showed the best performance. Magnesium hydroxide Mg(OH)2 has been treated with 3-glycidoxypropyltrimethoxysilane (GPTMS). It was added into coating formulation at three concentrations namely 5%, 7% and 10% (w/w). The best anticorrosive performance has been observed for 5% concentration. As the concentration increases the anticorrosive performance decreases but flame retardancy increases. The 7% Mg(OH)2 concentration has been combine studied with turmeric X concentration. It is observed that combination of extract with Mg(OH)2 gives good anticorrosive performance as well as flame retardant properties. The anticorrosive performance is evaluated by salt spray and electrochemical impedance spectroscopy (EIS) and flame retardancy is evaluated by Limiting oxygen index (LOI) and UL-94 study.
