ZINGA is a one-component Film Galvanising System containing 96% atomized zinc in its dry film. It is a metallic coating and not a paint. The purity of the zinc used, is so high that dry ZINGA does not contain any toxic elements.
ZINGA is a unique form of corrosion protection because it provides full active cathodic protection and a passive coating barrier protection in a form that’s as easy to apply as a paint. ZINGA has since been used in a wide variety of projects throughout the world.
ZINGA is an active zinc performance coating which works in conjunction with the metal beneath, whereas paints are only passive barriers. Regardless of how thick paints are applied, they remain as barriers. Once they are breached, corrosion sets in immediately. Despite this significant difference ZINGA is still often mistaken for a paint simply because it’s liquid and comes in a tin. But there are other more subtle differences. For example it does not “skin over” in the tin because ZINGA has an unlimited pot-life and it doesn’t go “tacky” like a paint.
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.
