Published on 2015-08-10. Author : SpecialChem

GLEN MILLS, Pa. -- To help provide maximum corrosion protection for steel surfaces in harsh industrial environments, Axalta Coating Systems, one of the leading global manufacturers of liquid and powder coatings, introduces two new Ganicin™ organic zinc-rich primers: Ganicin 2.8 MC-U™ moisture-cured zinc-rich polyurethane primer and Ganicin 2.8 ZR-E™ zinc-rich epoxy primer.

Ganicin 2.8 MC-U is formulated with Axalta’s polyurethane technology to deliver outstanding corrosion resistance for steel surfaces, especially when used with Axalta’s Corlar® or Imron® polyurethane primers. This 2.8 lbs/gallon volatile organic compounds (VOC) primer is intended for use on carbon steel substrates.

Developed with Axalta’s epoxy amine technology, Ganicin 2.8 ZR-E is a 2.8 lbs/gallon VOC zinc-rich organic epoxy primer. It is formulated to be a high performance primer with excellent adhesion and outstanding solvent and chemical resistance.

Ganicin coatings are Axalta’s newest industrial primer product line that includes zinc-rich polyurethane, epoxy and moisture-cured primers which conform to SSPC-20 Class 1 definitions for zinc-rich products containing 85% zinc in the dry film. They are formulated to be highly corrosion-resistant.

The Ganicin brand of products was introduced earlier this year with a zinc-rich polyurethane, Ganicin ZR-U. “Axalta is expanding our industrial product line to better serve market segments that require very high levels of corrosion and chemical resistance such as industrial maintenance, chemical plants, refineries and waste treatment facilities,” said Michael Cash, President of Axalta’s Industrial Coatings business. “The addition of these latest Ganicin products demonstrates Axalta’s commitment to deliver a comprehensive coating system that includes zinc, epoxy, and polyurethane products that will help protect and extend the life of equipment in harsh corrosive environments.”
