Axalta Zero Zinc Powder Primer – What’s it about?
Axalta ZeroZinc Primer Powder – Best in Class and good for the planet!!
Featured recently in Surface World Magazine the article below outlines one of the innovative products Axalta Powder Coatings manufacture and we supply to many customers nationwide.
Alesta ZeroZinc stands for the next generation of Zinc-free anticorrosion primers from Axalta Coatings Systems.
The innovative powder primer not only combines best-in-class corrosion protection and environmental sustainability but also offers solutions ideally matched to different substrates.
Corrosion causes enormous damages every year which lead to high costs for maintenance and repair. Thus, an ideal corrosion protection offers great potential across all branches for reducing costs, enhancing operating reliability of products, parts and metal constructions as well as saving resources. Additionally trade coaters and companies with in-house painting facilities can strengthen their competitiveness through optimisation of corrosion protection.
An appropriate solution for each need
The Alesta ZeroZinc range of products provides an optimum solution for every substrate to be coated. “Steel Prime” is the ideal solution to protect ferrous metals from corrosion. “Edge Prime” stands for a formulation which has been developed especially for coating steel and aluminium with sharp edges. It is characterized by its exceptional high viscosity during the curing process. With “Antigassing Prime” the Alesta ZeroZinc product range offers a tailored solution for degassing substrates, galvanized steel and metallisation.
Reinforced barrier effect
The primers are formulated using High Density Crosslinking (HDC) technology. It strengthens the barrier effect : all Alest ZeroZinc anticorrosion primers create a completely sealed coating that isolates the substrate from it’s environment. Superb adhesion properties and excellent resistance to mechanical and chemical exposure are additional benefits of the protective layer. Typically the primer coated surface can be easily coated over with powder and liquid topcoats.
Environmentally sound and durable
Besides outstanding protection properties environmental sustainability becomes more and more important when it comes to anticorrosion primers. Alesta ZeroZinc can score with both. Its eco friendliness results from the formulation without Zinc and heavy metals. Thsu the epoxy anticorrosion primer is exempt from labelling requirements for hazardous substances.
Approved under the most severe conditions
There are virtually no limits to the application of Alesta ZeroZinc, because the primers have proved their outstanding properties regarding corrosion protection and durability according to DIN ISO 12944-6. They fulfill the requirements up to class C5-I long. In combination with an adequate pre-treatment, the primers provide durable best-in-class corrosion protection even under the most sever conditions such as aggressive atmosphere, high humidity and extreme climate.
Economic advantages for many applications
Due to it’s low density Alest ZeroZinc anticorrosion primers not only enable easier application and optimised recycling, but also increase productivity : more sqaure metres can be coated per kilo of primer. Primed parts can be stored ready and waiting for topcoat, and thanks to the excellent intercoat adhesion the topcoat can be applied without prior grinding. Another advantage is the reduced wear on the coating equipment eg electrode, venture and pistol parts, which originates from the less abrasive nature of ZeroZinc.
These advantages qualify Alesta ZeroZinc for many applications. These range from parts and metallic structures used in architecture, outdoor furniture, ironwork, vehicle chassis and bodies, agricultural equipment to industrial machinery and many other applications.
