Primecoat Pre-treatments

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.

‘White rust’ the enemy of zinc coated steel strip is in itself a form of corrosion that occurs during storage and is unacceptable for critical applications in, white goods, construction and other industries.

Thin Organic Coatings

Thin Organic Coatings (TOC’s) are applied in a continuous process to hot dip galvanized steel strip and other metal substrates, and can offer a wide range of benefits from anti-fingerprinting to


Oils and greases used during processing as well as other forms of surface contamination must be removed. This can be achieved using either acid or alkaline based cleaners depending on
