Commencing as a water-dispersible solution, NALZIN® FA 180 seamlessly transforms into a non-water dispersible, insoluble zinc compound during the film drying process. This property contributes to its effectiveness in delivering enduring rust protection and a durable finish.
Designed to blend with a wide range of water-dilutable paint systems, NALZIN® FA 180, an organic zinc complex with a low nitrite addition, can be easily incorporated into various applications, including water-dilutable alkyds, acrylics, epoxies, and dispersion paints.
A significant feature is its ability to prevent flash rust, the formation of rust during the drying process of aqueous paint systems on iron-containing substrates. NALZIN® FA 180 effectively addresses this issue, ensuring that surfaces remain rust-free during the drying phase.
Additionally, NALZIN® FA 180 significantly enhances the rust-resisting capabilities of the dry paint layer, thus preventing in-can corrosion during storage.
NALZIN® FA 180 boasts several features that contribute to its effectiveness as a corrosion prevention solution:
- Strong affinity for iron substrates: NALZIN® FA 180 forms a robust bond with iron substrates, effectively preventing flash rust and preserving the appearance of painted surfaces.
- Decreased water sensitivity: NALZIN® FA 180 remains effective in the presence of water, ensuring durability in various conditions.
- Anionic passivated layer: This product forms an anionic passivated layer that inhibits corrosion after the film has dried, ensuring long-term rust protection.
- In-Can Rust Inhibitor: NALZIN® FA 180 can serve as an in-can rust inhibitor, prolonging the shelf life of paint systems.
- Improved weathering: NALZIN® FA 180 empowers paint systems to withstand the test of time and weather, preserving their appearance.
