For reasons of environmental protection and occupational health, the use of toxic lead compounds is diminishing. Zinc phosphate is used instead, although it does not have the same corrosion protection effect. , lead dust, aluminum bronze, and zinc dust) produce diffusionproof coatings with good mechanical properties. In the case of aluminum bronze and zinc dust, stabilization of the paint is required to prevent gelatinization. Iron oxide, chromium oxide, and titanium dioxide pigments, commonly used in the paint industry, are suitable for finishing and topcoats.

The binder is cross-linked via its sulfonyl group with metal oxides, preferably lead oxide, in the presence of organic acids and sulfur-containing organic accelerators.
