What is Seguard by Zinga?®

Seguard by Zinga is a one component zinc rich coating or Film Galvanizing System containing 96% zinc (dust) in its dry film. It is a metallic coating and not a paint. The purity of the zinc used, is so high that dry Seguard by Zinga does not contain any toxic elements.

Seguard by Zinga is a unique form of corrosion protection because it provides both Active and Passive protection in a form that's as easy to apply as a paint.

SEAGUARD FILM GALVANIZING SYSTEM’S Seguard by Zinga was originally invented in Ghent University, Belgium, in the 1970's and has since been used in a wide variety of projects throughout the world.

Seguard by Zinga is an active zinc performance coating which works in conjunction with the metal beneath whereas paints are only passive barriers. Regardless of how thick paints are applied, they remain as barriers. Once they are breached corrosion sets in immediately. Despite this significant difference Seguard by Zinga is still often mistaken for a paint simply because it's liquid and comes in a tin. But there are other more subtle differences. For example it does not "skin over" in the tin because Seguard by Zinga has an unlimited pot-life and it doesn't go "tacky" like a paint. Seguard by Zinga layer (microscopically).
