What Does Zinc Rich Paint Mean?
Zinc rich paints are those paints that contain a suitably high amount of zinc dust or zinc powder mixed with organic or inorganic binders. Such zinc rich paints are applied on steel or other metallic surfaces that operate in harsh environmental conditions and that have a continuous risk of corrosion. Although an effective protection against harsh elements, zinc rich paints require a topcoat to work optimally. The zinc dust prevents the metal from becoming corroded by simply sacrificing itself.
Zinc dust is a zinc material in the form of a powder that is also known as zinc powder.
