Corrosion Protection

A high-performance solution was required at short notice to protect the surface of high-strength lockbolts for use in the automotive industry, which most importantly had to have a low curing temperature. A zinc flake coating met these and other requirements and provided a black top coat to give the necessary high-quality finish.
