Inorganic Zinc flake coatings are non-electrolytically applied coatings, which provide excellent corrosion and weathering protection, as well as very good resistance to media and solvents. This technology is based on a mix of zinc and aluminium flakes, which are bonded together by an inorganic matrix. Such coatings can be successfully used for the protection of high-strength metal parts, preventing damage caused by hydrogen embrittlement.
Zinc flake coatings represent an environmental-friendly alternative to the traditional coatings and are mainly used as cathodic protective layers in the automotive and construction industries. They are well suited for protecting both large and small parts, having either simple or complex geometry. In combination with post-treated thin organic or inorganic coatings, these can also provide color, chemical resistance, low electrical conductivity, and bolting properties.
GEOMET® is a water-based and completely chrome-free chemical coating and capable that is used to protect a wide variety of metallic surfaces
DACROMET® products is a worldwide recognized standard widely used in non-automotive sectors such as rail, wind power and public works. It is particularly suited for thin layer thicknesses
Inorganic Zinc Advantages
We use such methods as dip-spinning and spraying to apply extremely corrosion-resistant zinc flake coatings. These technologies enable us to guarantee high performing thin layer anti-corrosion coatings for metallic parts.:
Long-term corrosion protection
Very thin layer thicknesses
Integrated lubricant additives
Metallic silver appearance
Stable friction coefficients
Resistance to high treatment temperatures and chemicals
Protection against contact corrosion
