DELTA-PROTEKT® | Overview | Properties | Application and Performance
DELTA-PROTEKT® KL 120 is a base coat made of zinc flake technology. The sacrificial characteristics of the zinc lead to the cathodic protection properties of this basecoat. The DELTAPROTEKT® KL 120 is applied via a non-electrolytic application technique directly onto the substrate (part). The zinc flake technique is described in the standards DIN EN ISO 10683 and DIN EN ISO 13858.
The application technology can vary according to the dimension and weight of the part; e.g. small parts are usually coated as dip-spin, bigger parts are usually spray coated. An optional top coat can enhance the corrosion protection properties as well as create some multifunctional characteristics such as a defined window of coefficient of friction, resistances to media, colouring etc.
All Dörken MKS products have always been free of harmful heavy metals such as chromium VI. As there is no hydrogen involved during the application process, there is no danger of application-related hydrogen-induced stress corrosion cracking
