Benda-Lutz® Zinc flakes
have a tremendous advantage due to their form and chemistry and thus help towards innovative solutions to problems. The narrow paint pores are completely closed by conversion of the chemically base zinc into the higher-volume zinc oxide – one speaks of a compression effect. Due to the lamellar form of the pigment, the barrier, the compression and the cathodic effects are very marked even when relatively small amounts are added. With Benda-Lutz® Zinc Flakes very good corrosion protection durabilities can be achieved even with low layer thicknesses. In addition, a black Zinc Flake is also offered which opens up new opportunities for paint manufacturers.
