With over four decades of experience in over 80 countries on every continent and used on the most extreme conditions, the ZINGA Film Galvanising System is now recognised as a proven alternative to traditional hot dipped galvanising (HDG) with total acceptance by engineers, architects and the coatings industries.

Brendan Igoe, CEO of Igoe International Ltd, ZINGA distributors said “In recent years we have seen an enormous growth in demand for this galvanising system due to several reasons, for example: It can be used to galvanise metals that are liable to warp in the HDG process. It can be applied on site in most conditions, being 96% pure zinc, it performs the same as traditional galvanising and in some instances even better; for exampleit can be over painted by most industrial two pack painted or powder coating. Remains flexible on the metal – will not peel or crack, even during metal forming/rolling.”

The system has been used in hundreds of huge projects ranging from offshore oil and gas platforms, steel pylons immersed in the sea, power stations, bridges, power pylons, railway lines, shipping, trawlers, road signs, wind turbines, structural steel fabrication, oil fields, power generating dam turbines, lighting masts, sub-sea pipe clamps, silos, water (including potable) and fuel tanks, transformers, vehicle and machinery maintenance etc.

Mr Igoe added “Another big benefit of this product is that ZINGA saves a lot of time as it can be applied in-house in fabrication settings. Shot blasting is a necessary part of the preparation process however but even allowing for that, substantial savings can be made in both time and transporting materials to and from HDG facilities.

Zinga is also used as a top up for old HDG which is nearing the end of its life cycle. Most important for engineers and specifiers is the fact that ZINGA has all the required testing and certifications includingNorsokM-501, C1 to C5M, IM1 to IM3. ZINGA 180 μm DFT passed a 4200 hours salt spray test (with scratch, demanding higher galvanic protection)according ISO 9227 with 1-5% red rust on the surface.”
