DUPLEX system – zinc coating + paint coating
DUPLEX system involves applying a layer of special paint over the zinc coating. This anti-corrosion protection has dual significance since both layers complement each other in terms of effectiveness. The outer layer of paint constitutes and additional anti-corrosion coating which protects zinc from oxidising. In a neutral environment the zinc layer can remain untouched for 35-50 years, but DUPLEX system extends that period to even 100 years.
DUPLEX system should be used for constructions that require both long-lasting and durable anti-corrosion protection and high aesthetics. Paint can be applied wet or in a process of powder painting.
The advantages of DUPLEX:
- double anti-corrosion protection – the zinc coating protects steel from rusting, but the paint coating protects zinc from unfavorable atmospheric conditions.
- improved aesthetic features of the construction through the right choice of paint colour – RAL colours available,
- reduction of maintenance costs – DUPLEX system prolongs the durability of the zinc coating from 30 to 50 years to even 100 years!
