Drying at room temperature 08 August 2019
Too large, bulky or temperature sensitive to coat… attributes that are no longer a problem with two new products from Dörken MKS – DELTA-PROTEKT® 170 RT zinc flake solution and DELTA-PROTEKT® REPAIR.
The new DELTA-PROTEKT® 170 RT zinc flake solution can be applied via spray application and dries at room temperatures of 20°C – 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 top coat can also be applied, further increasing the level of corrosion protection and improving other characteristics such as chemical resistance, appearance and feel.
The second new product in the portfolio of the Herdecke-based company is the zinc flake ‘in a can’ DELTA-PROTEKT® REPAIR. This ‘on the go’ corrosion protection 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 dries at room temperature and offers cathodic corrosion protection for Dörken MKS base coats as a repair solution.
Both room temperature drying solutions achieve good test results in the laboratory and reach at least 720 hours  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.
