Due to zinc’s superb resistance to corrosion compared to other ferrous materials, zinc paint forms an additional protective barrier usually between steel and the environment. The application of zinc paint is commonly called ‘cold galvanising’. When the product is applied via brushing or with an aerosol by spraying the surface area. The zinc paint coating prevents corrosive substances from reaching the iron or steel underneath and the term for this protection is called sacrificial anode. Sacrificial metals are more reactive than iron and this means they lose their electrons in preference to iron or steel by oxidising before the material it is protecting underneath.
Why DINITROL Zinc Paint?
With zinc paints most contain 65-95% metallic zinc, however with our own DINITROL 443 product containing 95% pure zinc we believe the product is highly effective.
