Durability and extended end-use life are demands that consumers take for granted and expect continuous improvement year on year. Paint adhesion and corrosion resistance are critical factors in keeping end-use applications in a condition that is expected to remain in place for their usable life time.
Durable paint adhesion en corrosion resistance on strip metal can only be achieved through chemical conditioning of the top metal surface prior to coil coating. Much of the chemistry has been based on hexavalent chromium; however this will be restricted in its use due to health concerns.
The past two decades AD CCT transformed its conventional conversion coatings in to PRIMECOAT ‘no-rinse’ pretreatments free of hexavalent chromium.
