Effective alternative solutions for degreasing, surface conversion and protective coating.

 

 

CHALLENGE

  • Customer experiencing premature paint failure of their valve stack. To improve surface degreasing and conversion processes that support better paint adhesion and corrosion protection.
  • Customer also requested recommendations on low emission paint system.

 

SOLUTION

  • Clean the surface with Ni free alkaline degreasers or dry ice,
  • Replace iron phosphating with eco friendly surface conversion treatment,
  • Replace solvent-based paint system with low VOC, corrosion resistant systems.

 

BENEFITS

  • Shorter surface degreasing and conversion process- Improved corrosion resistance
  • Water based paint to replace customer specific paints and no wastewater treatment step- Positive EHS impact
  • Lesser process steps-Faster streamlined process
  • Reduced product claims and rework- Quality assurance.
