This sacrificial action helps prevent rust and corrosion by forming a protective barrier on the surface. Zinc primers are widely used in challenging environments such as marine, offshore structures, and industrial facilities where exposure to harsh weather conditions and corrosive agents is prevalent. Additionally, these primers adhere well to different substrates, including steel and galvanized steel, providing a strong foundation for subsequent coating layers. The use of zinc primers is a proven strategy to extend the lifespan of structures and equipment, making them an integral part of corrosion-resistant coating systems in industries ranging from construction to heavy manufacturing.

We highly recommend HMG HB48 and Mapa Pmi to our customers requiring zinc primers.

MIO (Micaceous iron oxide)

MIO (Micaceous iron oxide) is a type of rust-resistant pigment that is composed of iron oxide (rust) and mica. The unique property of MIO is its plate-like structure, which gives it a shimmering, metallic appearance. This characteristic makes micaceous iron oxide particularly useful in various applications including:

  • Protective Coatings: MIO is often added to protective coatings, such as paints and primers, to provide corrosion resistance to metal surfaces. The plate-like structure of MIO creates a barrier that helps shield the underlying metal from environmental factors like moisture and oxygen.

  • Decorative Coatings: The metallic appearance of MIO makes it suitable for decorative coatings in architectural applications. It can be used in paints for metal structures, as well as in artistic and design applications. Fireproofing: Micaceous iron oxide is sometimes added to fireproof coatings due to its ability to withstand high temperatures. This makes it useful in applications where fire resistance is a critical requirement.
  • Industrial Coatings: MIO is employed in various industrial coatings, providing not only corrosion resistance but also enhancing the durability and lifespan of coated surfaces.

MIO offers significant benefits in applications such as epoxy anti-corrosive protection primers, providing a robust shield against the deleterious effects of rust and corrosion. When incorporated into epoxy formulations, MIO imparts a dual-action defence mechanism. The combination of epoxy and micaceous iron oxide not only enhances the longevity of coated surfaces but also contributes to the overall durability and resilience of the protective coating system.

Spray pumps

Spray pumps are indispensable tools in industrial coating applications, playing a pivotal role in the precise and efficient application of coatings on various surfaces.
