Electrox 400ml - Electrox 400ml

electrox is a unique zinc-rich coating that protects steel from corrosion by both barrier and electrical functionality. Coating steel with electrox produces a surface film containing over 90% metallic zinc, once cured the tightly packed zinc particles establish an electronically conductive pathway enabling cathodic protection of the underlying steel - exactly the same principle utilised in hot zinc galvanising.

For years galvanised steel has proven to provide outstanding longevity even in the most hostile and aggressive environments, itís unfortunate that the process involves hot dipping steel into a bath of liquid zinc. For many items and projects this is, of course, simply not possible. For those wanting to provide the very best protection to steel Bilt-Hamberís electrox allows the advantages of a zinc coating to be obtained as simply as if a normal metal primer were being used. Itís applied by brush, although spraying is easy too, and as itís a single pack product thereís no need for mixing activators. The cured zinc film can be left uncoated or top coated with a wide range of finishing paints to further increase protection

Recommended Uses

electrox is recommended for use on off-shore structures, harbour installations, jetty and pier pilings and extreme duty vehicle chassis work.


electrox is of particular benefit in vehicle restoration where under body protection is of vital importance, the highnesses levels of corrosion protection can easily be imparted to chassis rails, floor pans, sill sections, suspension components etc, in fact any area or part can be protected with this outstanding primer.

A Comparison

Most paint coatings rely on barrier protection of steel surfaces to prevent corrosion, and while most have corrosion inhibitor pigments to improve longevity the long-term protection is often disappointing. Protection of these barrier type coatings is quickly diminished at impact and damage sites too.

A cured film of electrox is a true zinc-rich coating containing in excess of 90% pure zinc. Proven through thousands of hours of salt-spray testing zinc-rich coatings are accepted as irreplaceable in the most hostile corrosive conditions. Further, the protection imparted by cathodic action means that steel surfaces are kept free of corrosion even in the event of film disruption.

Below electrox protects even when the paint film is cut
