1 - 3% (when used as sole anticorrosion agent), 0.8 - 2% (when used in synergy with other anticorrosion agents)
Product Application

Any type of liquid metal coating for industrial, professional or do-it-yourself use, especially primers or direct-to-metal systems based on :

  • Alkyds, solventborne/waterborne
  • PU 1K/2K, waterborne/solventborne

Depending on the system, will be added during the dispersion step (mill-base), or will be added into the let-down.
When it replaces anticorrosion pigments, the reduced PVC should be balanced with fillers used in the paint formulation.
In 2K systems: should be added to the resin part for PU coatings, to the hardener for epoxy coatings compatibility to be checked with preliminary testing).
