For damaged galvanising, corroded and welded galvanised surfaces, cold galvanising by Zinc metal spray is offered by Promtech

The reason for the extensive use of hot dip galvanising is the two-fold nature of the coating. As a barrier coating, it provides a tough, metallurgically bonded zinc coating, which completely covers the steel surface and seals the same from the corrosive action of the environment. Additionally sacrificial action of zinc protects steel even where damage or minor discontinuity occurs in the coating.

How zinc protects steel from corrosion
Zinc forms a metallurgical bond with mild steel. Zinc coating has good impact and abrasion resistance. Zinc spray offers corner and edge protection. Zinc metal spray offers satisfactory corrosion performance in sea water and salt spray testing an in saline atmosphere.

For damaged galvanising, corroded and welded galvanised surfaces, cold galvanising by Zinc metal spray is an ideal cure. This quick drying, high solids coating provides good protection to steel and ferrous metals against harsh corrosive environments.

Zinc metal spray is an acrylated epoxy solvent deposited coating which fuses to metal substrates to guard against corrosion. This coating constantly fights against rust and corrosion. It is highly resistant to salt water corrosion, does not sag and may be top-coated with conventional primers, paints and epoxies. Cold galvanising spray provides the protection of hot-dip galvanising plus the convenience of on the job aerosol application.

Zinc metal spray has electrochemical bond, quick drying, needs minimum surface preparation. It offers easy and user-friendly application for pre-despatch inspection stages and on-site use for touch-up. It stops rust and corrosion on any iron and mild steel surface.Zinc metal spray can be applied over wide range of temperatures and humidity, and also reduces maintenance costs.
