ISO 12944 on ZINGA
ISO 12944 is one of the most important international standards for the protection of steel against corrosion by protective paints systems.
This presentation provides information about the revision of the ISO 12944 standard showing the most relevant differences between the new (2018) and previous version (2007).
A summary of the results!
12944-1: Durability = Very High, More than 25 years!
12944-2: Classification of Environments
- C5-Industrial = Very High
- C5-Marine = Very High
- CX-Extreme = Off-Shore Construction ( this is a BIG DEAL )
- lm4-Water/Soil Immersion = Immersed Structures with Cathodic Protection
12944-3: Design Considerations = P3 Preparation Grade
ZINGA now has single layer certification, in addition to its multi-layer systems.
- ZINGA 80 – 100um = C4, C5
- ZINGA 120 um = C5
- ZINGA 120 um = CX
- ZINGALU 110um = C4, C5
- ZINGA 120um = lm4

Real world example
“Since 1988, several pulp and paper factories in Canada used ZINGA in 2 layers of 60µm DFT to treat their structures. In 2005, 17 years after application, no touch-ups were necessary.”
