The Zink-Nickel killer

24 June, 2019

It is time that we reduce the use of nickel. We are launching the results of many years of research: Provexa Earth Black®.

You are in the business and you know that nickel is bad news. It is toxic, dirty and dangerous – but is nevertheless used in corrosion protection by many coaters in many countries. There have been no alternatives. There is now.

We are launching the results of many years of research: Provexa Earth Black®. A patent-pending surface treatment method that utilizes the natural oxidation processes that take place in contact with the air. Basically, it is a high-alloy zinc. Re-paintable, UV-resistant and chemically resistant – but above all: It is a surface treatment process in line with Nature’s own system. And completely without nickel. Nickel is the most common cause of contact allergy, a problem you carry with you. About 15% of women in the Nordic countries are affected. In particularly vulnerable people, prolonged exposure to nickel can cause asthma or cancer in the sinuses and lungs. Too high levels of nickel in forest and soil can affect the microbial activity and lead to impaired germination and production.

In short: It is time that we reduce the use of nickel.
