Epoxy zinc rich primer

An ISO 9001:2000 Company

CERA ZINC - ZR is a two-pack polyamide cured air-drying compound having excellent resistance to corrosion, ideally suitable for repairing exposed reinforced concrete with CeraChem concrete repair products and as a primer for subsequent coatings in steel structures. ADVANTAGES: Excellent protection for steel from corrosion Recommended for use in natural (coastal) as well as artificial (industrial) corroding environments Excellent adhesion and bond strength in Cementitious repair systems Two-component, ready to use system

FUNCTION: Cera Zinc - ZR, supplied as a twocomponent system, when mixed and applied on the reinforcement or steel structures, forms an impervious strongly adhering film, which inhibits the corrosion process in the structure. USES: Cera Zinc - ZR is used as a coating for protection of reinforcement in concrete, structural steel, M.S. Liners, equipments, conveyors, storage tanks etc., from chemical and saline environments as in Fertilizer plants Refineries & petrochemical complexes Hydroelectric projects Pulp, paper, rayon units Sugar industries Port ( off-shore installations) Bridges, Culverts, flyovers etc. METHOD OF APPLICATIONS: The adhesion of Cera Zinc - ZR is greatly impaired if the substrate is not prepared properly. Removal of rust, mill scales, etc. forms an essential part of surface preparation. Thorough scrubbing with wire brushes, grinding, etc are the means of exposing the sound substrate. Sandblasting shall be carried out in larger areas. Application of Cera Zinc ZR should be carried out immediately after surface preparation, preferably within three hours. Mix Cera Zinc - ZR base and curing agent in prescribed proportion by volume and allow it to remain for 10 minutes. Remix the compound and apply on the prepared surface with brush. Allow Cera Zinc ZR to cure completely before subsequent coating, such as CERA CORROSEAL in case of exposed structural steels in off shore installation or application of repair systems CERA FIBRE CRETE.
