Phosphate coatings are extensively used to improve the adhesion of organic coatings to ferrous metals. The CanPhos and Keykote phosphating improves this adhesion in either spray or immersion applications.
To meet RoHS, WEEE and EOLV directives, our processes include Qualicoat and GSB approved chromium-free systems. For multi-metal use we have cleaner phosphate systems which can be teamed with high-performance dry in place final seals to provide reliable, cost-effective pre-treatment for painting.
Our latest technology BlueKote 2000 answers industry concerns on disposal of phosphates. BlueKote 2000 is both phosphate and heavy metal-free. BlueKote 2000 increases the bonding between metal and paint as well as improving the corrosion resistance.
