With the increasing usage of steel since a long time as a construction material it is found that steel gets rusted when not protected. The protection of steel using different surface coatings is a common practice. Steel when allowed to rust causes corrosive metals to change in colour and if an object is allowed to rust for a long time possibly there is a gradual deformation in its shape. Among the ample number of alternatives to present steel or metal from rusting hot dip galvanizing is one of the best such options which is widely used for industrial purposes.
ZINGA differentiates from other anti-corrosion methods in combining both Passive and Active protection in an easily applied film galvanizing system that not only delivers active catholic protection but also provides a passive physical shield. As the effective galvanizing alternative ZINGA combines many advantages such as: an active or galvanic protection, a passive barrier protection and an easy application. In order to offer a galvanic protection, a zinc concentration of at least 92% has to be present in the dry extract. Having 96% of zinc in the dry film, ZINGA certainly meets all such conditions. ZINGA offers an excellent active and passive protection:
Benefits of ZINGA the galvanizing alternative are versatile such as:
EASY TO APPLY ON SITE - Once thoroughly mixed, ZINGA can be applied by using a normal paintbrush, a short-fibre roller (not for the first coat) or a conventional or airless spray-gun.
QUICK DRYING TIME - ZINGA has one of the fastest drying times in the coating industry. This benefit allows fast system applications, and consequently shorter application times, dry dock times, less man hours and shorter close down time of structures.
ZINGA DOES NOT PEEL OFF AND IS NOT BRITTLE - ZINGA contains so much Zinc in its dry film, it does not form a closed film.
RECHARGING - One of the most decisive advantages of ZINGA is that it can be recharged.
ZINGA CAN BE TOPCOATED
FIRE RETARDANT PROPERTIES - A ZINGA unique system shows fire retardant properties.
WELDS - ZINGA is one of the few non specialized coatings that can be welded and applied over welds.
