Avantguard®

Triple Activation with patented Avantguard® technology
FIND OUT HOW YOU CAN BENEFIT

Take your corrosion protection to a higher level

Avantguard® is the first zinc-rich primer to use all three methods of anti-corrosive protection: Barrier effect, Inhibitor effect and Galvanic effect. It combines zinc, hollow glass spheres and a proprietary activator in our unique patented technology, which triples the activation of the zinc. The result is superior corrosion protection with higher durability compared to standard zinc-rich primers.

Revolutionise your corrosion protection

Our industry-changing patented Avantguard® technology with three activating components - zinc, hollow glass spheres and a proprietary activator:

 

1. Is the first zinc-rich primer to activate all 3 methods of corrosion protection: the Barrier effect, the Galvanic effect and the Inhibitor effect.

2. Is the first zinc-rich primer to triple the activation of the zinc content, boosting the Galvanic effect beyond any standard in the market.

3. Creates a much higher amount of insoluble salts than conventional zinc-rich primers, boosting the Barrier effect beyond any standard.


Avantguard® technology helps your coating system last up to 50% longer and protects your assets regardless of the environment they face.

Longer corrosion protection

Give your assets a longer life, even in the toughest conditions. Avantguard® is proven to deliver superior corrosion protection with extended durability, so your coating system lasts up to 50% longer. 

Lower maintenance costs

Extended corrosion protection allows you to perform maintenance less often, reducing maintenance needs by up to 30% throughout the lifecycle of your asset. In addition, the special two-coat Avantguard® systems will instantly reduce your maintenance costs, through the reduced number of coats needed to complete the project.

Reduced application costs

Avantguard® is easy to apply and fast drying, even in high temperatures and humidity, so you’ll save up to 30% on the time needed to apply it. The unique patented technology with three activating components gives you the option to reduce the number of coats or coating thickness.
