The new coating system is a polyurethane primer derived from organic and solvent-based technology with a demonstrated corrosion protection at 2.8 lbs/gal volatile organic compound (VOC) level. There are options for spray application and spot repair on zinc-rich coatings.

Axalta North America - general industrial product manager Ross Morgan said: "Axalta scientists have developed a new line of zinc-containing products to broaden Axalta's industrial primer product portfolio.

"The new Ganicin 2.8 ZR-U primer has been formulated to offer maximum corrosion protection when used over steel surfaces."

The product could also be applied under Axalta Corlar epoxy primers or Imron urethane primers with a view to boosting the performance of the coatings in environments conducive to effecting corrosion. This also makes it useful in areas like new construction, fabrication, shipping containers and amusement parks.
