New C4 material for cable ladder covers
At the end of 2020, we launched a new coating, XPG®, for atmospheric-corrosivity category C4. The first XPG® product at the market was the MEK® lighting support rail. Now the XPG product line is growing with cable ladder covers.
What is XPG®?
XPG® forms a thin film on its surface. Corrosion protection of XPG® coating is based not only on cathodic protection but also on mechanical. In chloride- and ammonia-containing environments, XPG provides clearly better corrosion protection than traditional zinc coating.
Environmentally friendlier choice
In C4 environmental conditions, durability with a thinner layer of zinc than usual is possible. XPG® contains about 50% less zinc than the traditional Meka HDG products. This itself has a great environmental benefit. The XPG’s composition also significantly reduces the zinc leakage to the soil and water. We manufacture XPG® products in one location, which additionally reduces the logistics and transport impact as well as our CO2 footprint.
