Curing at room temperature


Two new zinc flake products from Dörken MKS deliver a high level of corrosion protection and offer new opportunities for coating.

Too large, too bulky, too temperature-sensitive to coat… attributes that are no longer a problem with the two new products from Dörken MKS. To prevent the corrosion of temperature-sensitive or large parts and components it is now possible to use the new DELTA-PROTEKT® KL 170 RT zinc flake solution. The new product is applied via spray application and cures at room temperatures of 20–25°C within approximately 20–60 minutes, depending on the thickness of the coat applied. This means there is no need for a drying oven. In addition, a matching topcoat can also be applied, further increasing the level of corrosion protection and improving other characteristics such as chemical resistance, appearance and feel.

Thanks to the spray application, the new DELTA-PROTEKT® KL 170 RT can be applied in the thinnest of layers.

The second new product in the portfolio of the Herdecke-based company is the zinc flake in a can DELTA-PROTEKT® REPAIR. This corrosion protection to go enables the coating of bare metal, especially for repairing defects after the coating and handling process. In addition, the product can also be used to coat small areas on prefabricated component groups that may not be subjected to high curing temperatures. This zinc flake solution also cures at room temperature and offers cathodic corrosion protection for Dörken MKS basecoats as a repair solution.

The new spray can DELTA-PROTEKT® REPAIR is used for the optimal repair of defects after the coating und handling process. 

Both room temperature drying solutions achieve good test results in the laboratory and reach at least 720 h without base metal corrosion in salt spray testing (in accordance with DIN EN ISO 9227). The innovative surface protection from Dörken MKS is available worldwide and fulfils high quality standards.
