Maximum Thin, Optimum Resistance
The zinc flake coating system is a method to apply cathodic corrosion protection in a currentless way. Additional topcoats increase the performance. The REMCOR ZINC FLAKE COATING SYSTEM consists of REMCOR BASE (basecoat) and REMCOR TOP (topcoat). This results in a perfectly adjusted system with multifunctional properties:
- High cathodic corrosion protection
- Defined friction properties
- Good adhesion and abrasion resistance
- High chemical resistance
- Electrical conductivity
- Extremely thin layer (8–12 μm)
- Resource saving
With a layer thickness of only a few micrometers, the zinc flake coating system achieves a resistance of a 1,000 hours in the salt spray test.
The basecoats REMCOR BASE silver and REMCOR BASE black provide an active corrosion protection due to the sacrificial effect of the zinc flakes. These systems are highly efficient and are also available as air- and force-drying systems. Their application prevents hydrogen embrittlement, the basecoats themselves may be fine-tuned with integrated lubricants to the required coefficient of friction.
REMCOR TOP is an organic topcoat specifically designed to be applied on REMCOR BASE. The coating material is also well suited as topcoat for duplex applications on galvanized surfaces (such as zinc and zinc alloys). REMCOR TOP can be customized to complement and enhance the protective effect of the basecoat and defines the mechanical properties of the system. Combined with REMCOR BASE black, for example, a durable opaque black coating for the automotive industry may be created.
