State of the art conversion coating systems
In the future those companies will be successful that have the ability to adapt themselves quickly to the continuously changing business environment. In the pre-treatment world the zinc-phosphate technology is a well-known and established technology and suitable for many different applications. Despite its age the performance of the zinc-phosphate layer meets and even exceeds market standards. That is why starting points for new pre-treatment developments focus mainly on the application process. With Oxsilan for example, Chemetall developed the first thin film pre-treatment technology to increase the ease of use for the user, enhance the environmental friendliness and reduce production costs. While the thin film technology is still on its way to penetrate the market, Chemetall is already working on the next generation pre-treatment technology. The basic idea is combining the conversion functionality and the first layer paint into one processing step. Because this process step is working without any electricity, the ease of use for the customer may be significant again.
