At a Glance: ZRC Zero-VOC Galvanizing CompoundZRC ZERO VOC solves the problems inherent in traditional inorganic zinc coatings like: near-white sandblasting, difficult spraying, and short pot life. We’ve resolved these issues by creating a unique hybrid featuring the best features of organic and traditional inorganic zinc coatings. ZRC ZERO VOC offers the same true cathodic protection as our original ZRC, without volatile organic content, solvents, or solvent fumes.
With its unique formulation, ZRC Zero VOC Cold Galvanizing Compounds are excellent for use in VOC-restricted areas. ZRC Zero VOC may be used without a topcoat in place of hot-dip galvanizing. Also used as a high-performance base coat with a variety of topcoats. 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, ZRC 221 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.
The main advantage of ZRC was that it allowed us to provide galvanized protection on site without delays to the project. Another important factor in specifying ZRC is its true cathodic action. With the volume of heavy traffic passing through the transit shed doors, it is likely they will be scratched. ZRC should provide zinc protection even when the doors are scratched to bare metal.
I tried several inexpensive galvanizing topcoats, But that proved to be totally inadequate. In fact, they caused more problems beneath the surface of the coating. ZRC was an amazing transformation. My maintenance costs went way down. ZRC indefinitely extended the life cycle of the floats.
The steel railings have held up very well, especially considering their constant exposure to the corrosive effects of moisture from Lake Erie and the Niagara River, the severe Buffalo winters, and the light road salting in the area.
