For projects requiring corrosion protection, we recommend DACROMET®, the leading water-based inorganic metal finishing system recognized around the world as a proven and cost effective alternative to both electro and mechanical platings and solvent-based organics. DACROMET® and our various sealers and topcoats can be applied to a variety of substrates in order to provide corrosion protection to ferrous metals. This coating system has gained worldwide acceptance as reliable, proven, corrosion resistant metal finishing systems which protect against road salt, humidity, solvents and other corrosive elements.

The coating compositions are proprietary water based coating dispersions containing metal oxides, metallic zinc and aluminum flakes. The zinc and aluminum platelets align in multiple layers forming a metallic silver gray coating. Applied as a liquid material, the coating becomes totally inorganic after curing at 610° F/321°C.
