TYPE: Two pack water based galvanizing compound.

GENERAL PROPERTIES: ZRC® ZERO-VOC is a advanced-technology cold galvanizing compound based on a trade secret binder which affords true galvanic anti-corrosion protection to metals without the necessity of sandblasting for most metals. Also withstands high temperatures.

SUBSTRATES: Apply to properly prepared carbon steel, cast iron, and aluminum surfaces. 

NOT RECOMMENDED FOR: Contact with potable water, acids or alkaline environments will require appropriate top coats.

SALT FOG EXPOSURE: 10,000 + Hours (ASTM B117)


VOC: 0 lbs/gal (0 gms/ltr) (ASTM D3960)
Continuous: 1200º F maximum/ 649º C maximum
Non-Continuous: 1700º F maximum/ 927º C maximum
