Powders have been successfully as a top finish coat over Zinga for over ten years now, and salt-spray testing has been under taken to 5000 hours with excellent results.

Black powder coat on ZINGA

This system means that the steel is totally galvanised and finished in colour, with no potential for corrosion problems.

One of the main factors to note is that Zinga is NOTa paint, but a pure zinc coating.


Due to this, Zinga can actually be applied in the same spray-booth or an adjacent spray-booth to the powder-booth. There is no danger regarding silicone poisoning or fish-eyes.

The Zinga layer can be reduced to as low as 40µm DFT underneath a powder-coat, as there is typically no more than 0.8% pin-holes in powder coatings.


Where moisture or water-vapour can enter a microscopic pin-hole, once it penetrates through to the zinc layer it will react and plug the hole with oxides and carbonates.


These are dense, non-conductive salts and even ionic currents cannot pass through to the solid zinc layer underneath.

Both gassing and non-gassing powders have been used over Zinga, although the non-gassing types do not always give a high-gloss finish.
