An experimental study of the use of Zinc flake in anti-corrosive coatings has demonstrated the possibility of producing films of significantly greater reactivity than are obtained from zinc-rich primers based on zinc dust. Attempts to reduce this reactivity by employing inhibitors and by the use of spacer pigments have led to the development of formulations utilizing tri-pigment systems based on zinc flake, zinc chromate and mica. These materials appear to have potential in their greater formulating versatility compared to modified organic zinc-rich primers based on zinc dust.
