St. Louis, Missouri, January 12, 2018 – Carboline is pleased to announce the release of Carbozinc 608 HB! Carbozinc 608 HB is the first 5-10 mil zinc primer on the market. More primer means more protection. It is highly surface tolerant and quick to cure.
Carbozinc 608 HB is a zinc-rich primer with excellent film build properties yielding a high zinc loading per square foot. When coupled with a micaceous iron oxide, MIO, flake-reinforced epoxy phenalkamine binder, the resultant film is an extremely durable and effective corrosion resistant coating. Due to these unique combinations of properties it can (in one coat) replace a zinc + (epoxy) intermediate coating of a standard 3-coat (zinc/epoxy/urethane) system.
“Carbozinc 608 HB allows customers to save application time and labor costs without sacrificing performance. It eliminates the need for an epoxy intermediate coat by providing a two coat system that provides excellent performance,” said Darrin Andrews, Executive VP Sales USA.
While the primary target market for Carbozinc 608 HB is the marine market it has many more potential uses in other Industrial markets on storage tanks, piping, equipment, structural steel, etc. The fast recoat properties (and 2-coat system approach) will be attractive to fabrication shops and OEM’s.
"We wanted to develop a 5-10 mil zinc primer. The high build feature allows the elimination of a coat of paint while maintaining the film thickness with a superior zinc-rich product that provides better barrier protection and sub-film corrosion resistant properties,” said Dwayne Meyer, Executive Vice President Commercial & Technical Resources.
