NOT RECOMMENDED FOR: contact with potable water, strong acids or strong alkalis

POT LIFE: At least 24 hours


SURFACE PREPARATION: Dependent upon surface conditions and intended service. Typical examples are as follows:

Grease & Oils Solvent to clean SSPC-SP1
Rust Scale Power tool clean to SSPC-SP3 or SSPC-SP11 (SIS St 2 or 3)
Mill Scale, Paint or Heavy Rust Sandblast to SSPC-SP6 (commercial)
(SIS Sa 2)
Water Immersion (100°F (38°C) Maximum) Sandblast to SSPC-SP10(near white)
(SIS Sa 2.5)



Apply as received in container. For brush application, we recommend only 100% Natural Chinese Bristle brushes. For roller application, we recommend rollers with a 3/8” nap, made of mohair or lambs wool (sheepskin).

Where can you use ZRC?


ZRC is used to protect steel structures, such as railings.


Unlimited uses: on structural channel frames, as part of curtain wall support systems or curtain wall mullions.


Long-term protection of miscellaneous metals.

Public Projects

ZRC is specified as the base coat for the protection of structural support steel.

Transmission Towers

Used as original protection for structural steel and for regalvanizing support cables. Also over worn hot-dip.

Industrial Maintenance

Used for maintenance of structures and equipment inside and outside industrial, petrochemical and food processing plants (Acceptable to USDA and FDA).


Used by international manufacturers such as Leach Co., Oshkosh, WI to prevent corrosion on the inside surfaces of water tanks.

Instead of Hot-Dip

Makes galvanizing an “in-plant” operation for many manufacturers.

Nuclear Plants

ZRC has many applications in all phases of construction.

Off-Shore Rigs

Protects above and below the water line.

Water & Waste

ZRC is used to protect steel in extremely hostile environments such as water and waste plants.


ZRC is used on the exterior surface of water tanks. For example, a tank was protected by ZRC in an extremely corrosive environment for over 20 years.

Parabolic Antennas

ZRC is used extensively as a base coat in a two-coat system for the superior protection required in highly corrosive locations.
