Durability Enhancement for New and Deteriorating Infrastructure
ZincTape offers an alternative to traditional organic based barrier coating systems, offers similar durability benefits to hot dip galvanizing and organic, zinc rich coatings.
It is designed to cover the surface of iron, steel, galvanised steel, stainless steel and aluminium, preventing corrosion of the underlaying surface.
The product is available in roll form, based on the following dimensions:
Width mm 10 15 20 25 30 35 40 50 70 80 90 100 150 200 300
Length m 50
The product is also available as pre-cut shapes, based on the project and client specific requirements.
Zinc is naturally more corrosion resistant than iron and steel.
Zinc corrosion products are white, compared to the red rust of iron and steel alloys.
Zinc is anodic to iron, steel, galvanised steel, stainless steel and aluminium, which leads to the preferential consumption of the zinc, when connected to these alloys.
When coupled with iron, steel, galvanised steel, stainless steel and aluminium structures, ZincTape provides Passive and Active corrosion protection, thereby preventing corrosion, deterioration and loss of structural integrity.
ZincTape is suitable for providing corrosion and durability enhancement for all new and existing metallic structures, with the exception of magnesium and magnesium alloys.
It is suitable as an alternative to conventional protective coating systems or hot dip galvanising, used for corrosion protection.
It can be used to rehabilitate existing galvanised steel elements, where the zinc has been consumed and which are showing signs of ferrous corrosion.
It can be used over existing coating systems, as an overall containment and durability enhancement system, without the need to removed sound un-damaged coatings.
It can be used to protect contact surfaces and crevice areas, between mating surfaces or bolted connections, which are prone to wetting and localised corrosion.
It can be used to prevent bi-metallic corrosion between dissimilar metal contacts.
When incorporated between mating surfaces, ZincTape will corrode and provide galvanic cathodic protection to the metallic mating surfaces, preventing crevice and bi-metallic corrosion of the structural components.
