Plasmet ZF

On maintenance coating projects that occur on land or offshore, the asset owner may require a coating solution that is surface-tolerant due to environmental, safety, or cost constraints. 

In this case, we specify systems that are either fully coated or primed and coated with our Plasmet ZF. 

Plasmet ZF utilizes a proprietary blend of epoxy resins and pigments to allow for a surface tolerant glass flake and a Micaceous Iron Oxide (MIO) reinforced barrier coating that will outperform every other surface-tolerant epoxy coating on the market.  Over the past 20+ years since its development, Plasmet ZF has been used to coat the externals of inshore, offshore and marine assets when using minimal levels of surface protection and still yielding long service lives.

Many of the coating applications technicians that apply the Plasmet ZF provide extremely positive feedback relating to ease of application of the product.  Applicators find success brushing, rolling or spraying Plasmet ZF – sprayable with a conventional pump.

We understand that abrasive blasting may not always be an option. It was for this reason that we designed the Plasmet ZF with rust inhibitors and adhesion promoting additives that allow it to obtain very high adhesion rates with little to zero surface preparation. While we do maintain that the more surface preparation the better, we have seen Plasmet ZF work well on surfaces prepared via powertool (SSPC SP3), hand tools (SSPC SP2) or even solvent wipe only (SSPC SP1).

The product has an extremely long overcoating window with itself.  After wiping with a solvent, we have seen very high inter-coat adhesion rates even after greater than 28 days between coats.  With this in mind, we often blast and prime structural steel in the shop and then solvent wipe and apply the next coat of corrosion protection in the field.

Plasmet ZF can be used as a primer for applying more chemical resistant coatings to.  In this way, in certain instances, specifiers whom are dealing with the often mutually exclusive choice to either abrasive blast or apply a chemically resistant coating or lining can have their cake and eat it too.   Other Corrocoat products that are used in conjunction with the Plasmet ZF are as follows:

Plasmet AR3 – used to resist full immersion of 98% sulfuric acid and other chemically corrosive service environments that range from 0-14 pH.

Corrocoat Zip E – A glass flake reinforced epoxy coating or lining used in severe corrosion service environments

Plasmet HTE – Our most abrasion resistant coating and lining; also having great chemical resistance and can withstand full immersion in temperatures up to 230 F.

Plasmet ZE – A chemically resistant epoxy lining ideally suited for shop or field application.

Also, for galvanized surfaces, we slightly altered the Plasmet ZF formulation to further promote adhesion to galvanized surfaces to create Plasmet ZGalv.
