Our fine zinc metal powder

Z-HYFINE™ – Our anti-corrosive series

Z-HYFINE™ is our anti-corrosive, fine zinc metal powder also known as Zinc Dust. With metallic zinc at 96.0 [min wt.%] Z-HYFINE™ is widely used in epoxy and ethyl silicate coatings.

Zinc dust primers and paints offer unrivalled durability by forming a protective, fast-drying coating that sticks quickly and easily to bare metal. Adding zinc metal powders to paint and primer mixtures protects surfaces from mildew and mould, harsh UV rays, rust, corrosion and provides extra stain blocking support.

Zinc dust enriched paints and formulations are ideal to use as a protective coating on a wide range of outdoor steel and metal infrastructure. Our Z-HYFINE™ zinc dust powder intrinsically, provide and extend the life of infrastructure exposed to the vagaries of nature.

Leading paint and surface coatings multi-nationals, and Australian enterprise rely on ZOA’s Z-HYFINE™ zinc dust powder to restore and rejuvenate our Australian infrastructure.

When a metal surface chemically reacts to surrounding oxidants (air, water and carbon dioxide), corrosion occurs. Using a layer of zinc dust primer or paint helps repel oxidants from contacting the steel surface, therefore preventing corrosion for longer.

Our fine zinc metal powder, Z-HYFINE™, provides high corrosion protection due to its high metal contents and small particle size. It can also help improve the colour quality, gloss and finish of the painted structure. To receive personalised advice about your product or organise an order, please contact the ZOA team.

Our zinc metal powder raw materials are produced by the French (indirect) process. This process has many advantages compared to others, including:

  • Consistent high purity & fine particle size.
  • Consistent white colouring

Zinc Dust in 1-K & 2-K Paints

1-K paint (or 1 Pack zinc rich ethyl silicate primer) is a standard level paint suitable for interior and decorative use, low traffic areas, and places less prone to general wear and tear.

In contrast, 2-K paint (2 Pack epoxy primers) is a much more durable paint designed to withstand harsh weather, heat, abrasion and certain chemicals. 1-K paint contains no added hardener, while 2-K paint requires chemical activation with an added hardener.

Z-HYFINE™ is compatible with both of these types of paint to add extra corrosion resistance and protection. To learn more about our recommendations for your product, please chat with our team today.


Zinc dust pigment in interior and decorative paints

As one of the three pure pigments zinc dust powder continues to be used for its intrinsic UV protection in interior and decorative paints.

Zinc enriched paints help retain the lustre while retaining the colour for years together.
