Protective zinc-aluminium coating.
A single component, zinc-aluminium coating combining corrosion protection properties with the lustre look of aluminium. Galva Brite is a combination of zinc and aluminium powders, resins and additives, formulated to form a flexible protective film with a bright, glossy appearance.
- Excellent touch-up for galvanised surfaces.
- Provides excellent corrosion and rust resistance to ferrous metals.
- The galvanic properties ensure cathodic protection (the coating becomes the anode).
- Unique combination of flexibility and hardness.
- Resists rusting, peeling and fading.
- Adheres well to metal surfaces.
- Combines the galvanised look with the convenience of an aerosol application.
- Totally lead and chromate free.
- No chlorinated and low-aromatic solvents.
- Aerosols use dimethylether (DME) propellant for controlled spray and film properties.
- Fences and gates
- Home, garden and farm equipment
- Construction equipment
- Structural steel
- Guard rails
- Welding seams
- Pipes and fittings
- Coastal and shipborne installations
- Repair of LPG storage tanks
Typical(*) Product Data (without propellant)
- Shake aerosol can very well for at least one minute after agitator ball is free. Stir or mix bulk product well to obtain a homogeneous dispersion. Repeat frequently while using.
- Apply to a clean, degreased, dry surface for best results. Remove rust and scale with a wire brush.
- Apply in light, even coats; best results are obtained with 2 lighter rather than 1 heavy coat. Additional coats can be applied after 15-20 minutes.
- When spraying is finished, clean aerosol valve by turning can upside down and press button until only propellant escapes. If clogging occurs, remove button and clean orifice with fine wire.
- Do not use on energised equipment. Use in well ventilated area.
- A safety data sheet (MSDS) according EU directive 93/112 is available for all CRC products.
