New Product Announcement: Rust Prevention Solution
Global specialty chemicals company Elementis recently introduced a new protective solution meant to fight off rust and corrosion in aqueous paint systems.
According to the company’s release, Nalzin FA 180 begins as a water-dispersible solution before transforming into a non-water dispersible, insoluble zinc compound during the film drying process.
About the Product
Elementis states that its new product is made to mix with a range of water-dilutable paint systems. Nalzin FA 180 is reportedly an organic zinc complex with a low nitrite addition and can be mixed into various applications, including water-dilutable alkyds, acrylics, epoxies and dispersion paints.
The release states that a key feature is Nalzin’s ability to prevent flash rust, the formation of rust during the drying process of aqueous paint systems on iron-containing substrates. It reportedly addresses this issue to ensure that surfaces stay free of rust during the drying phase.
Additionally, Nalzin FA 180 can reportedly improve the rust-resisting capabilities of the dry paint layer, preventing in-can corrosion during storage.
Elementis states that other features of the Nalzin FA 180 system include:
Nalzin FA 180 will reportedly be manufactured in China, and the company plans to consolidate its position in the regions it works in, including China, Southeast Asia and other markets.
