Corrosion protection systems based on lamellar zinc pigments

The anticorrosion properties of Zinc have been well-known for decade. Product development of a unique Zinc flakes morphology permitted to contemplate improved performances of Zinc Rich Primers to meet the increasingly stringent requirements of modern high-quality corrosion protection. By applying paint system, primers with Zinc flakes, it was possible to obtain not only economic but also ecological advantages whilst maintaining coating specification requirements. Zinc-rich coatings as the primary steel bridge corrosion protection system has, in the last 20 years, greatly increased the performance of painted steel in salt-rich environments.
