Report on chemical structure, production methods, application techniques and mechanism of corrosion prevention of inorganic zinc silicates used on large scale in marine industry. Soluble sodium silicates are manufactured by autoclaving sand (silicon dioxide) with strong alkali. Salts polymerize and become insoluble in the presence of moderate to strong acids. This reaction is accomplished by applying an acidic curing solution to the deposited fiber containing sodium silicate, metallic zinc and red lead. Description of procedure of applying inorganic zinc coatings as tank linings as protection of exterior hull surfaces in boot-topping and top side areas, as primers on ship bottom areas, and protection in military ships. Self curing inorganic zinc coatings.
