Maximise the potential of your pre-treatment system
Within the metal finishing sector, there are many ways to prepare products prior to painting.
One recommended option is to chemically pre-treat components. The most common types of chemical pre-treatments are applied in immersion or spray systems.
Pre-treating components offers the benefit of increased adhesion, and corrosion protection of the substrate or paint system being utilised. Phosphates and chromates have often been used within this sector. However, with Health & Safety, and environmental concerns at the forefront of consumer’s minds, BONDERITE® new generation coatings provide a sustainable alternative.
• They create less sludge
• They contain less harmful chemicals
• They can operate at lower temperatures
• They are easy to control
• They can process multiple metals through the same stage
• They are cleaner and conversion coating can sometimes be combined in the same stage
With traditional pre-treatment chemicals, regular removal of sludge from treatment baths is required. This removal process can be time consuming, costly, and often hazardous. With Stowlin’s new generation coatings, the bath life can be extended, therefore reducing proximity and contact time of operators with the chemicals.
Customers with traditional set-ups often utilise two stages, one for the cleaner and one for the conversion coating. Furthermore, traditional products operate anywhere between 35 – 65°C, whereas BONDERITE® new generation coatings operate at lower temperatures which in turn, helps to reduce costs.
Stowlin can support your individual requirements to help maximise the potential of your pre- treatment system.
