Our research and development activities are aimed
at developing new high-performance and resourceefficient
zinc coatings in batch hot dip galvanizing processes. By using special zinc alloys with high aluminium and magnesium content (binary and ternary batch HDG systems) a significant reduction in
zinc layers is combined with significantly
better corrosion protection compared with existing ISO
1461 batch HDG processes. ZINQ is on the verge of
turning the ,,more is more" in corrosion protection
into a family of "less is more" technologies for protecting
steel against rust.
After the first Cradle to Cradle® certification for the duroZINQ® surface was awarded in 2013, the thin-film galvanizing process microZINQ® was also awarded the special certification. Cradle to Cradle® does not have any waste. Instead, products are already evaluated as resources for the next phase of use during the development and production process, and have already been optimized early for their later material life.
