DELTA-PROTEKT® VL 450 is a topcoat for a zinc flake basecoat or for other metallic substrates. In a system e.g. made of basecoat + topcoat, it is responsible for multifunctional characteristics such as a defined coefficient of friction window, resistance to media, colouring etc. Additionally, it can enhance the corrosion protection properties of the basecoat.The DELTA-PROTEKT® VL 450 is applied via a non-electrolytic application technique directly onto the substrate (part). The zinc flake technique is described in the standards DIN EN ISO 10683 and DIN EN ISO 13858. The application technology can vary according to the dimension and weight of the part; e.g. small parts are usually coated as dip-spin, bigger parts are usually spray coated. All Dörken MKS products have always been free of harmful heavy metals such as chromium VI. As there is no hydrogen involved during the application process, there is no danger of application-related hydrogen-induced stress corrosion cracking.
