Our Craftsmanship and Quality, At-A-Glance
Equivalent to hot-dip galvanizing, ZRC’s Cold Galvanizing Compound is manufactured with the highest purity ASTM D520 Type III zinc dust. Meeting VOC standards in all fifty states, it passes ten-year subtropical exposure testing and exceeds ASTM A780 standards for hot-dip galvanic repair. With flexible application formats, our product is the industry standard in combating corrosion, for true galvanic protection.
ZRC is widely used without topcoats in place of hot-dip galvanizing and is deployed as a high-performance base coat with a variety of topcoats. Used for:
Hot-Dip Galvanizing Repair & Regalvanizing
Inorganic Zinc Coatings Repair
Flexible Application Formats
Unlike hot-dip galvanizing, ZRC is portable, flexible protection that can be applied in a variety of formats.

Quotes from Our Customers
It’s no secret we’re the industry-leading solution that lasts. Here’s what our
customers have to say.
Because of my experience in the field with this product, I always recommend ZRC in corrosive applications. I've used ZRC to regalvanize radar towers and catwalk gratings for the Navy at the base in Winter Harbor, Maine. I also used it on metal roofs and on saltwater cookers at a canning company. In all cases, it has provided five years or more of rust-free protection.
DAI needed a coating that was equivalent to hot-dip galvanizing since many major components are too big to fit in the galvanizing tanks," "ZRC provides the equivalent corrosion protection of ASTM A 123 galvanizing and is applied directly over sandblasted A 36 steel prior to topcoating with chlorinated rubber or epoxy.
Of all the painting systems I have used to protect ironwork in the past ten years, ZRC top coated with epoxy works the best — even in highly corrosive, humid environments.
