JOTUN ESAB COLLABORATION TO CONTINUE AFTER OUTSTANDING SHIP PRIMER TEST RESULTS

As a result of changing production and logistic patterns, recent years have witnessed a move toward zinc-silicate shop primers which, with somewhat reduced zinc content, can also be applied to the steel in lower film thicknesses. The article describes two shop primers which combine the required higher welding and cutting speeds with the reduced period for corrosion protection. On has a medium zinc content to give an optimised combination of protection, cutting and welding properties while the other has a low zinc content for exceptional cutting and welding performance. The products result in minimal pits and blow-holes, without grinding prior to welding or cutting, and also offer notable resistance to water, solvents, chemicals and mechanical strain. In addition, their ability to resist high temperatures substantially reduces distortion following straightening.
