InterCoat®ChemGuard Links with Zinc at the Molecular Level


InterCoat®ChemGuard actually links with the zinc at the molecular level; it bonds covalently with any zinc or zinc alloy to completely merge with the zinc so that it cannot be washed off, rubbed off, stamped off or reduced off.  This unique bond is part of the InterReactive® technology that sets InterCoat®ChemGuard apart from barrier coatings (such as paints) and industry standard chemtreatments.

In the diagram, observe the various layers of InterCoat®ChemGuard that are formed during the application process – each layer serves a role in providing extensive corrosion performance, unparalleled edge and perforation performance, and excellent post-paint adhesion.
