The Alesta ZeroZinc primers are designed for customers who demand high performance and environmentally responsible solutions that can help generate operational savings from reduced costs and wear on their application equipment, said Bill Sante, Global Business Development Director for Axalta’s powder coatings.

Aside from quality protection, Alesta ZeroZinc is environmentally responsible due to its formulation without zinc and heavy metals. ZeroZinc meets the standards regarding corrosion protection and durability according to DIN ISO 12944-6. It also fulfils requirements up to class C5-I long. In combination with an adequate pre-treatment, the primers provide durable, best-in-class corrosion protection even under the most severe conditions such as aggressive atmosphere, high humidity and extreme climate.

Axalta is supporting the global launch of Alesta with a variety of customer support materials, including a new product brochure.
