Zinga cold galvanizing

Has anyone here used Zinga and how did it work? I am thinking of it
for a new steel boat trailer.

I've used brands of cold-galv other than Zinga, and wasn't terribly impressed.
They work OK on areas that will _never_ be subject to any sort of mechanical contact from anything else, but the film is too weak to withstand any sort of abrasion or to resist puncture.
Keep in mind that there's a LOT of zinc, and very little binder in that stuff, so film strength is low.
They also tend to fail if water puddles on an area for any extended period of time, probably because the coating is somewhat porous.

I've never used it myself but have heard very good reports from others. However, if you're building a new trailer, why not just get it hot dip galvanised?

The closest galvanizing plant is 4 hours away, and they charge $0.90/ pound after finished trailer weight so the cost would be over $1000.00, 1 gallon of zinga is more than enough and which acording to their website is =3D to hot dip cost $195.00 also trailer would have to be floated to galv. plant which would cost another 1000+. Trailer is 30' long.
