Fosroc Nitoprime Zincrich Plus is the recommended anti-corrosion primer for exposed steel reinforcement for use with Fosroc concrete repair mortars. It is fully compatible with all Renderoc mortars and fluid micro-concretes.
Fosroc Nitoprime Zincrich Plus is supplied as a single component grey-coloured liquid based on metallic zinc.
Expose fully any corroded steel in the repair area and remove all loose scale and corrosion deposits. Steel should be cleaned to a minimum of ST3 standard, paying particular attention to the back of exposed steel bars. This should be achieved by suitable mechanical means, e.g. powered wire-brushing, high pressure jetting or alternative equivalent. Where corrosion has occurred due to the presence of chlorides, the steel should be high-pressure washed with clean water immediately after preparation to remove corrosion products from pits and imperfections within its surface.
The application of Nitoprime Zincrich Plus must take place as soon as possible to a dry steel surface after completion of the preparation work but always within 3 hours. The material should be stirred thoroughly before use in order to redisperse any settlement.
Apply one full and unbroken coat of Nitoprime Zincrich Plus by suitable brush, making sure that the back of exposed steel reinforcing bars are properly coated. A small brush is generally more suitable for this purpose. Allow to dry fully before continuing. If any doubt exists about having achieved an unbroken coating, a second application should be made as soon as the first coat is fully dry (generally after 2 hours).
The application of concrete repair materials may proceed as soon as the Nitoprime Zincrich Plus is touch dry (generally 1 hour - see data sheet). The primed surfaces should not be left exposed to the elements for longer than necessary before overcoating or application of the repair material. Nitoprime Zincrich Plus will, however, protect steel under clean interior exposure conditions for a period of several months.
In non aggressive exterior environments, a maximum interval of 14 days will be tolerated but in industrial and/or marine environments this interval should be reduced to the practical minimum. If the 14 days in an external environment has been exceeded, inspect the coating for signs of damage, remove any dust by vacuuming or utilising oil free compressed air. If damage is detected, remove the affected areas and re-apply Nitoprime Zincrich Plus, lapping onto adjacent areas by a minimum of 20mm.
The minimum application temperature is 5°C. The material should not be applied when the substrate and/or air temperature is 5°C and falling, or is less than 3°C above the dew point. At 5°C static temperature or at 5°C and rising, the application may proceed.

The manufacturers data sheets are available for download from this website. It is your responsibility to read and understand all aspects of the data sheets before you place an order and prior to application. Please pay special attention to the preparation, mixing and application temperatures of the product, cleaning of substrate and environmental factors such as temperature, rain etc. Quoted coverage rates are based on the manufacturers theoretical rates and may vary depending upon substrates absorption, texture and application. We always recommend a test is carried out to ensure suitability.
