Surface Treatment
Our surface treatment solutions help reduce process steps, improve efficiency and facilitate process cost savings

Surface treatment products are used for cleaning, conversion coating and sealing of metal surfaces to improve paint adhesion and corrosion protection. Our solutions help reduce process steps, improve efficiency and facilitate process cost savings.

Application examples include manufacturing of automobiles, home appliances, HVAC systems, agricultural and construction vehicles, and many other industries.

Our innovative surface technology processes offer a number of benefits:

  • Reduced energy and water use
  • Reduced product consumption
  • Reduced chemical waste
  • Fewer process steps
  • Reduced cycle time
  • Environmental benefits

We offer a full line of application equipment and process control systems to optimize the application of our surface technology products. These can be easily integrated into existing manufacturing processes.
