Excellent – no loss of protection after prolonged exposure

Flammable during application. Dried film not combustible.

See MSDS. Take precautions exercised for any flammable paint.

*Note: actual coverage rate will vary depending upon material losses during mixing and application, and upon type and condition of

surface to be coated. Allowance must be made for losses when estimating material requirements.

Galvax zinc-rich coating protects metal

zinc-rich coating protects metal

surfaces with a film of sacrificial zinc in a

manner similar to hot dip galvanizing. It is a

zinc-rich coating based on an epoxy-ester resin.

The dried film contains 93% zinc by weight.

Galvax protects steel surfaces subjected to a

wide variety of corrosive influences, and is

particularly useful for recoating or spot-priming

weathered or damaged galvanized surfaces. It

has excellent recoating properties.
