POLYMET Water Based Zinc Flake Basecoat is the first water based zinc flake coating that provides a shelf life of 6+ months. While other water based zinc flake coatings require to be used within 4-6 weeks, POLYMET Water Based Zinc Flake Basecoat has shown stability far longer. Zinc flake coatings are used to provide corrosion resistance for metal parts through cathodic protection – it creates a barrier over the metal and then self-sacrifices to protect it. POLYMET Water Based Zinc Flake Basecoat offers over 1000 hours of corrosion resistance over zinc phosphate parts. The majority of zinc flake coatings are solvent based products, however, a handful of manufacturers offer water based products. Formulation of water based zinc flake coatings has proven elusive for many chemists, however, PPI discovered a breakthrough. After vigorous testing through an independent lab, we are confident our product surpasses the competition in the water based zinc flake coatings segment. At PPI, we value environmentally friendly coatings. Following that vein, POLYMET Water Based Zinc Flake Basecoat is chrome free, contains no other hazardous materials, and is REACH and RoHS compliant.
