Pre-Treatment Is the Secret to the Best Finish!

To ensure our team provides the very best services to all customers, we make sure we learn about the new technologies becoming available in the industry, especially when it involves ‘pre-treatments’. It is absolutely necessary that before any object is coated it receives the right pre-treatment to guarantee that you receive the best finish available. This way, your object is certain to look better than it has ever done before.

Here at Impact Coatings, it is important that our environmental footprint is as small as possible, which is why we use environmentally friendly products and processes. Sticking to our eco-friendly system, we prefer to use Zirconium Phosphate, as it is safer than already existing products used in industry. For the pre-treatment of more delicate items, we use an acid pickle process, and for the larger less delicate items, we provide a hand-prepared treatment. To remove old paint rust, we perform a shot or bead blasting method to ensure the item is not damaged in the process. So, call our team for more information today!

Further Details of Our Range of Pre-Treatments Include:

  • Shot-blasting & bead-blasting: used to remove old paint rust, or just to give a rough key to steel using our own shot-blasting facilities. We can advise what can be done and what can’t be done.
  • Zirconium Phosphate: the latest technology; very environmentally friendly; very good pre-treatment for a variety of metals, giving extra life protection.
  • Iron Phosphate pre-treatment: an old system used mainly on internal components; shorter life-span than Zirconium, but still offers good protection on a variety of metals.
  • Acid pickle process: used to soften aluminium surfaces to complement our Zirconium Phosphate process; also used where rusting items can’t be shot-blast due to their delicate nature. We will advise you on what can and can’t be done.
  • Hand-prepared pre-treatment: using solvent or environmentally friendly cleaners for larger items. Items can then be etch-primed, using non-chromate wet spray in our large wet spray booth, also giving extra life protection.

Our team believe obtaining the correct pre-treatment is essential to a quality finish. We endeavour to provide a pre-treatment for a variety of substrates, ranging from aluminium, timber, zinc-plated items, brass, copper, mild steel and countless other substrates. The team at Impact Coatings have a wealth of experience in the coating industry and, therefore, can confidently give you advice on a variety of solutions.
