Cost of Corrosion, and How to Prevent It


Corrosion has an astronomical global cost of US$2.5 trillion annually!1. In Australia alone, corrosion costs more than AUD$1,500 per person in Australia each year 2. These costs do not take into account the potential threat to individual safety and the environment Almost every material used in engineering and construction is susceptible to corrosion, this includes steel, concrete and some plastics. It is calculated that up to US$875 billion can be saved globally using corrosion control techniques.

Dy-Mark’s Zinc Guard range do just that. The Zinc Guard system can prevent and manage corrosion on a variety of surfaces including steel, stainless steel, galvanised iron, wrought iron, aluminium, alloys, copper, brass and Zincalume®. With products that can be used with new, rusted and previously coated metals it is never too late to begin using Zinc Guard.
