Single Pack Anti-corrosive Zinc Coatings: A Shield for Farm Gates and Agricultural Machinery

Single pack anti-corrosive zinc coatings provide a robust barrier against rust, extending the lifespan of metal components. Whether you’re constructing farm gates or assembling agricultural machinery, single-pack anti-corrosive zinc coatings like Colgal and Zinc Rich Primer No. 1 are your allies. They ensure durability, protect against rust and keep our vital structures standing strong against the elements. In this blog, we’ll delve into the world of zinc-rich primers, focusing on their application in fabricating farm gates and agricultural machinery.

Why Zinc Coatings Matter

Zinc coatings are widely used in various industries due to their exceptional anti-corrosive properties. Here’s why they matter:

  • Galvanic protection: Zinc acts as a sacrificial anode, corroding in place of the underlying steel. This galvanic protection prevents rust formation and ensures the longevity of metal structures.
  • Single-pack convenience: Single-pack zinc-rich primers are easy to apply, making them a popular choice for touch-ups and small-scale projects.
  • Versatility: These coatings adhere well to various substrates, including mild steel and galvanised surfaces.

Colgal: the reliable choice

One standout product in this category is Colgal, a single-pack epoxy zinc-rich anti-corrosive primer. Features include:

  • Application: Colgal is ideal for steel fabrications requiring maximum corrosion protection. Whether you’re fabricating farm gates, agricultural machinery or fences, Colgal provides a robust shield against rust.
  • Quick drying: At 25°C, Colgal is touch-dry within 30-45 minutes and fully cured in 16 hours. This efficiency ensures minimal downtime during the coating process.
  • Topcoat compatibility: Colgal pairs seamlessly with various Wagon Paints topcoats, including Rapid Enamel, Purlenamel, Implement Enamel, Auto Enamel and Baking Enamel.
  • High zinc content: With over 90% zinc metal in its dry film, Colgal offers effective cold galvanising protection.
  • Touch-up solution: Use Colgal for touching up galvanised metal surfaces, maintaining their integrity over time.

Zinc Rich Primer No. 1: extended corrosion defense

Another valuable product is Zinc Rich Primer No. 1. Here’s what you need to know:

  • Purpose: Zinc Rich Primer No. 1 is designed for steel fabrications requiring extended corrosion protection. It’s an excellent choice for touching up galvanised steel.
  • Fast drying: At 25°C, this primer is touch-dry in just 30 minutes and fully cured within 6 hours. Recoating can occur after 4 hours.
  • Powder coating compatibility: Zinc Rich Primer No. 1 serves as an effective anti-corrosive primer for steel intended for powder coating applications.
  • Structural steelwork: It’s commonly used in industrial and commercial environments, safeguarding tankage, pipelines, cranes and bridges.
