Topcoatings (ArmorPlex) 

An ArmorPlex system is the combination of a diffusion galvanised coating (base coat) and an organic coating (top coat). These systems are generally used when products are permanently exposed to an exceptionally aggressive environment or for aesthetic or functional reasons.

Top coatings can be applied  over ArmorGalv®  by painting, spraying, dip spinning, electrostatic or catophoresic processes without pre-treatment.

The service life of a n ArmorPlex system is determined to a considerable extent by the mutual bonding of the coatings and the base material. The zinc-iron alloy produced by the diffusion galvanising is bound inseparably with the base material.

The microcrystalline surface of the ArmorGalv®  coating anchors the organic coating. In the event of damage to the top coat, the underlying zinc-iron layer means no base material corrosion of the top coating can occur.

In the case of maritime applications, ArmorGalv®  has ArmorPlex systems coated with Xylan with a corrosion-resistance of more than 14,000 hours.
