Zinga a fast air drying high zinc content (96%) anticorrosion primer

Zinga provides cathodic protection of ferrous metals which is an alternative to hot dip galvanizing or metallisation. It can be applied by brush, roller, aerosol or spray. Zinga is recommended for the protection of steel in aggressive marine C5-M environments and can be used as a repair system for galvanised steel. Zinga can be easily overcoated with itself as each new layer reliquidises itself forming a homogeneous layer and may be overcoated with polyester powder coatings and other high performance paints.




Zinga is a fast air drying zinc rich epoxy primer with 96% zinc in the dry film and provides cathodic protection of ferrous metals. It can be used as a unique system as an alternative to hot dip galvanising or metallisation, as a primer in a duplex system or as a recharging primer for galvanised steel.

Zinga is designed for new construction where fast dry to handle and overcoating times are required. It is suitable for use on steel to be exposed to highly corrosive C5M environments. It can be applied by Airless spray on abrasive blast cleaned steel or by brush as a stripe coat for additional protection of welds. Zinga is prequalified in accordance with Norsok M501 System 1.

Zinga is an air drying zinc rich primer providing excellent corrosion protection as part of a complete coating system suitable for use in atmospheric environments. It can be applied direct to carbon steel and may be used to repair galvanised steel. It is recommended for offshore environments, structural steel, power plants, machinery, building products, construction and steel bridges. It can be applied up to 60 microns in a single coat by airless spray, two coats may be required to achieve the recommended DFT by brush.
