Coatings, Thin Film Process
Chemetall was the first company to introduce a multi-metal thin-film technology on the market — long before most of the current developments had taken place.
Now, Oxsilan® represents a mature alternative — comparable in terms of quality to zinc-phosphating or chromating processes. With a view to their technical and economic profile, these thin film technologies clearly show advancements in terms of higher productivity and multi-metal capability, resulting in considerably lower process costs.
Oxsilan® is the answer for phosphate-free processes.
Easy changeover from conventional processes to Oxsilan®
Manufacturers who are considering an upgrade of their paint and pretreatment system should therefore consider taking a step towards the future. Many years‘ industrialized experience has shown that existing processes can be converted without significant investment.
A drop-in replacement for iron phosphate processes, Gardobond AP 9811 is compatible with mild steel equipment and typical city water in 3-stage spray washers.
A liquid, phosphorus-free, single-package, cleaner and pretreatment that enhances the performance of subsequently-applied organic liquid and powder coatings.
A phosphonate-based conversion coating process designed to yield performance similar to an iron or zinc phosphate system without the drawbacks of heavy metal, sludge, and phosphate discharge. The EPP process operates at lower temperatures than iron and zinc phosphate, producing measurable energy savings. Very low phosphorous content.
Phosphorous-free pretreatment to replace iron phosphate. For steel, aluminum and zinc substrates, applied at ambient temperature by spray or immersion, normally used with a final water rinse. OXSILAN 9800 is a liquid, silane-based product with non-regulated metals.
Phosphorous-free pretreatment to replace zinc phosphate. For steel, aluminum and zinc substrates, applied at ambient temperature by spray or immersion, normally used with a final water rinse. OXSILAN 9810/2 is a liquid, silane-based product with non-regulated metals. Approved for Federal Specification TT-C-490, Type IV.
Used on aluminum, zinc, cold-rolled steel and other substrates, OXSILAN MM-0705 is a silane-based product that enhances the performance of subsequently-applied organic coatings. OXSILAN MM-0705 is particularly effective for rubber-to-metal bonding.
