In what way is a zinc-rich primer “rich?”


What kind of zinc-rich coating has an epoxy binder?


What is the function of zinc pyrithione in paint?


True or false: Zinc coatings are sometimes used to coat concrete on bridges, parking decks, and similar structures, especially in salt environments.


What is one thing that some zinc-rich coatings and potassium silicate paints have in common?


True or false: A zinc silicate primer is classified as an organic zinc-rich coating.

What is the name given to the zinc ammonium chloride solution that cleans and deposits a protective layer on steel before it is immersed in molten zinc to achieve galvanizing?


True or false: With zinc-rich coatings on steel, the zinc becomes the anode in a galvanic cell and sacrifices itself to protect the cathode, the underlying steel.


Cold galvanizing employs a coating with a high percentage by weight of what material?


True or False: A seal coat over thermal-sprayed zinc will perform better if application is delayed until at least 30 days have elapsed so that natural oxidation can form on the zinc.


True or False? To be effective, a seal coat over a thermal-sprayed zinc coating must be applied after a significant amount of natural oxidation has occurred.


True or false: Zinc phosphate pigments, when used in primers for steel substrates, provide sacrificial protection of the metal.

True or false: If a zinc-rich coating has a silicate binder, it is classified as an organic zinc-rich.


In what way is a zinc-rich primer “rich?”


True or false: In multi-coat systems, it is not always the case that the higher the zinc loading in a zinc rich primer, the better the system performance will be.


True or false: Inorganic zinc pre-construction primers for shipbuilding normally have more zinc content than inorganic zinc primers applied after fabrication.
