Axalta's line of Ganicin zinc-rich primers helps fight corrosion and is good for chemical plants, refineries and waste treatment facilities, the company said.

Developed with Axalta’s epoxy amine technology, the company said Ganicin 2.8 ZR-E is a 2.8 pounds-per-gallon VOC zinc-rich organic primer. It is formulated to be a high-performance primer with good adhesion and solvent, and is chemical resistant, Axalta said.

Ganicin coatings are Axalta’s newest industrial primer product line that the company said includes zinc-rich polyurethane and epoxy and moisture-cured primers that conform to SSPC-20 Class 1 definitions for zinc-rich products containing 85 percent zinc in the dry film. They are formulated to be highly corrosion-resistant.

The company said the products are made for areas that require industrial maintenance, chemical plants, refineries and waste treatment facilities.
