Metal Pretreatment Chemicals

The Pretreatment Process


Substrate surfaces must be thoroughly cleaned for the formation of a high quality pretreatment coating. Properly removing any oil, dirt, or existing rust is critical for uniform coating coverage, thickness, and proper adhesion.


The substrate surface is washed with a surface conditioner to accelerate the conversion reaction. This creates finer crystals during the chemical conversion step, forming a more uniform and effective protective layer.


Conversion coating chemicals react with the substrate surface to create a continuous, anti-corrosive layer. The resulting protective layer inhibits rust formation, and also increases adhesion to subsequent painting.
