At-A-Glance: ZRC Galvilite Galvanizing Repair
ZRC Galvilite Galvanizing Repair is a high-quality cold galvanizing compound based on a trade secret organic binder which affffords true galvanic anti-corrosion protection to metals. Galvilite® is designed specifically for field and shop repair of hot-dip galvanizing. It is manufactured with the highest purity ASTM D520 Type III zinc dust. It meets VOC standards in all 50 states, exceeds galvanizing repair specifications, and has multiple application formats.
The dried film of Gavilite is 95% metallic zinc. Because of the uniqueness of the formulation, Gavilite is the only coating of its type to be recognized under the Component Program of Underwriter's Laboratories, Inc. Galvilite is widely used without topcoat in place of hot-dip galvanizing. It’s specially formulated for:
Hot-Dip Galvanizing Repair & Regalvanizing
Galvalume® and Zinc Metallizing
Inorganic Zinc Coatings Repair
Flexible Application Formats
Unlike hot-dip galvanizing, Galvilite is portable, flexible protection that can be applied in a variety of formats. It’s meant to be applied to properly prepared carbon steel, cast iron, hot-dip galvanized, and aluminum surfaces.

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 salt water 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 top coating 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.
