ZRC Superior Zinc Coating

More the 50 years of PROVEN RUST PREVENTION

For more than half a century the ZRC family of corrosion-preventative products have been delivering maximum protection against rust and creepage. 

ZRC's secret is its industry-leading 95% zinc content and exclusive binder. Together they deliver true galvanic protection that has been proven as the most effective method to extend the service life and maintenance cycles of metals.

How effective is ZRC? Independant laboratories have designated ZRC as the equivalent of hot-dip galvanizing, which had long been recognised as a primary method of protecting metals. Because of its unique properties, ZRC has been widely accepted as a convenient and effective alternative to hot-dip.

Architects, engineers and original equipment manufacturers specify ZRC products for long-term corrosion control because of our superior product performance, environmental friendliness and reputation for quality assurance (backed by our ISO 9001 quality system registration).

In addition to being a substitute for hot-dip galvanizing, ZRC is used extensively in the following areas:

  • High performance primer for a variety of topcoats
  • Field repair of damaged hot-dip galvanizing
  • Regalvanizing of worn hot-dip galvanizing
  • Repair of weldments
  • Repair of damaged inorganic zinc coatings
ZRC excels in long-term protection of structural steel, waste and water facilities, power plants, transmission towers and antennas, and steel decking and bridges. It is also commonly used by original equipment manufacturers as an in-plant substitute for hot-dip galvanizing. 

The ZRC Difference

The ZRC difference is made possible by ZRC’s high zinc content (95% by weight in the dried film) of “ultra-pure” zinc dust (ASTM D520 Type III) and proprietary, non-encapsulating binder. This unique combination provides a self healing galvanic film that is impossible for others to match. The proof is in the photos – the performance of ZRC and GALVILITE is clearly superior!
