WB HRZS® is the previously NASA-patented coating technology IC 531. Polyset is the original, commercial manufacturer of this product. It is a 100% WaterBorne, High Ratio Zinc Silicate. WB HRZS® chemically bonds to steel to provide excellent corrosion protection (both galvanic and cathodic), has high heat and abrasion resistance, is completely self-curing and 0 VOC. WB HRZS® provides unparalleled protection for steel in the harshest marine and offshore environments. It can be used as a Single Coat System, Primer or a Pre-Construction Primer and top-coated with a variety of different options.

WB HRZS® has a quick dry-time which allows for easy application on tanks, barges, ships and causeway systems and will last for extended periods of use. Since multi-coat systems are not required, considerable savings advantages for the marine industry can be realized in both the short and long term while also remaining well within environmental guidelines. WB HRZS® chemically bonds to steel which prevents any undercutting should the structure be damaged while in use. WB HRZS® also has excellent anti-fouling properties; barnacles, zebra mussels, oysters, etc. will not adhere to the coating.
