This 2013 publication includes over 30 Technical Papers focusing on Inorganic Zinc Coatings. The papers in this publication come from two main sources; the first eight papers were presented at the seminars run in 1997 and 1998 in Australia and New Zealand and the second group of papers are papers from local authors presented at various conferences or locally published over the years.

The coordinators of the two previously mentioned technical seminars were the ACA Protective Coatings Technical Group, formed in 1997, coinciding with the 60 year anniversary of the patent for the first inorganic zinc coating being taken out by its inventor, Victor Nightingall of Melbourne. The first paper is a copy of Nightingall’s original Australian patent. Other papers concentrate on inorganic zinc silicate (IZS) coatings, some branch into related subjects such as galvanizing and epoxy zincs and issues such as the performance of topcoats over zinc coatings.
