Galvanode ZincTape is used to provide galvanic corrosion protection to new and existing steel structures such as bridge supports, light posts, pipelines, marine structures, transport vehicles, and industrial tanks. Galvanode ZincTape is designed to cover the surface of iron, steel, aluminum and light metals in order to protect them from corrosion. The product consists of high purity zinc with an electrically conductive, self adhesive backing. This allows the adhesive to create an electrical couple between the surface that needs to be protected and the zinc tape, so the zinc can act as a galvanic anode. Galvanode ZincTape can be supplied in custom shapes and factory top-coated for improved protection and aesthetics.

Features and Benefits
Dual protection – Galvanode ZincTape provides both barrier and galvanic protection to the steel surface. The zinc layer provides a barrier to oxygen, water and chemicals. If electrolyte penetrates the tape, the zinc will act as a galvanic anode to protect the steel.
Custom sizing – Galvanode ZincTape is available on rolls or in custom shapes, to meet customer needs.
Long service life – zinc layer provides long term protection to metallic surfaces that in many cases is equal to or longer than the expected lifetime of the structure.
Economical - significant reduction in coating maintenance over the life of the structure.
Easy application – the product is hand or mechanically applied with minimal surface preparation required. Conforms to irregularities in the metal surface such as welds and corrosion pits.
Environmentally friendly - reduction in debris released to the environment through the elimination of abrasive blasting and spray coating.
Low maintenance – once applied, Galvanode ZincTape requires minimal maintenance over the long term.
Versatile – can be used to cover and protect the surface of iron, steel, aluminum and light alloys.
