Every year corrosion is costing billions to the industry. This corrosion doesn’t merely make the assets appear neglected, more importantly, it causes structural instability and consequently poses a serious safety hazard. It also causes severe disruption of the production process and thus profitability.
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 cathodic protection but also provides a passive physical shield.
WHAT IS ZINGA?
The film galvanising system ZINGA® combines many advantages: 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 this condition. ZINGA® offers an excellent active and passive protection:
- The Zinc provides active, cathodic protection through galvanic sacrifice.
- The barrier, provided by both the zinc oxides and the binder ensures a passive protection.
In case of mechanical damages or in case of expansion and shrinking of the metal due to temperature variations, there will be no formation of rust whatsoever.
