Val-Matic Zinc-Rich Coating System

Installing valves with Val-Matic’s Zinc-Rich Coating System ensures corrosion resistance for the entire pipeline system. Val-Matic’s coating features a protective, reinforced zinc-rich primer base coat and a high-performance, chemically-cured epoxy top coat which provides exceptional abrasion and corrosion resistance.

Zinc has a lower electrode potential on the galvanic series and therefore acts as a sacrificial galvanic anode to help protect iron in corrosive environments. The result is a reliable coating system with exceptional abrasion and corrosion resistance ideally suited for buried valves, especially those in contact with zinc-coated iron pipe.
