What is ZINGA used for?
ZINGA is a unique form of corrosion protection because it provides both Active and Passive protection in a form that’s as easy to apply as a paint. ZINGA was originally invented at the University of Ghent (UGent), Belgium, in the 1970s and has since been used in a wide variety of projects throughout the world.
Can you paint over ZINGA?
To avoid bubbling of a topcoat or sealer over ZINGA, we advise to apply the paints using a mist/full coat technique. A thin coat of sealer or topcoat is applied over the surface of ZINGA before a full pass of the coating at the normal film thickness.
What is cold galvanizing paint?
Cold galvanizing is simply painting a piece of steel with zinc-rich paint. The cathodic protection offered by zinc-rich paint is less than hot-dip galvanizing because there are binders and other elements in the paint which limit connectivity of the zinc particles.
How do you use Zinga?
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. ZINGA must be thoroughly mechanically stirred to achieve a homogeneous liquid before application. After a maximum of 20 minutes, re-mixing is necessary.
How do you use Galvafroid?
Apply by brush, roller or dipping. Allow coating to weather 3 days before applying decorative coat such as a good oil based or alkyd paint. Do not rub down Galvafroid to obtain a smooth surface for finishing paints. A filler should be applied and rubbed down where a high finish is desired.
Does cold galvanizing stop rust?
About Cold Galvanizing Compound Spray Instantly galvanize metal surfaces to protect them from corrosion with Rust-Oleum® Stops Rust® Cold Galvanizing Compound Spray. This 93% pure zinc coating applies a galvanized film with cathodic protection, which resists rusts, scratches and chips.
Can you paint over Galvafroid?
Where required, Galvafroid may be painted to improve durability or to enhance appearance. The Galvafroid galvanising coating should not be rubbed down to obtain a smooth surface for finishing paints. For general purposes, a good oil bound or alkyd paint should be used. Contact our technical team for a suitable topcoat.
What is Galvafroid paint?
Technical Description. Galvafroid Zinc-Rich Coating is a brush or spray-applied anti-corrosion coating containing 92-95% zinc in the dried film which confers electro-chemical protection on ferrous metals. It may be used as a primer or self-finish.
Does Zinga® film Rust?
Having 96% of zinc in the dry film, ZINGA® certainly meets this criteria. In case of mechanical damages or the expansion and shrinking of the metal due to temperature variations, there will be no formation of rust whatsoever.
Does Zinga® prevent corrosion?
Having 96% of zinc in the dry film, ZINGA® certainly meets this criteria. In case of mechanical damages or the expansion and shrinking of the metal due to temperature variations, there will be no formation of rust whatsoever. Please view our great new video detailing how ZINGA provides galvanic cathodic corrosion protection!
How much zinc is in Zinga® dry film?
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 criteria.
What is the Zinga film galvanizing system?
ZINGA® film galvanizing system provides cathodic protection to steel substrates creating a galvanic protective barrier with over 96% zinc content.
