Pretreatment of ferrous metals prior to powder coating can present challenges in the removal of soils. The typical solution is an alkaline cleaner. Here are a few basics on alkaline pretreatment cleaners for ferrous metals:
- Except for hot-rolled steel, the oils, grease and other contaminants are what cause challenges with getting the surface prepped for powder coating and other paint processes.
- Whether you have a recirculating washer, a soak/dip operation, or a manual spray Troy has the best cleaners for your pretreatment process.
- Foaming products are ideal for spray wand and pressure washers. Dip/soak operations and cabinet washers can be used with a wide variety of products and perform well in most environments.
- Look to your chemistry. Your Troy representative will help you choose the right chemistry for your combination of soils. Depending on your needs, there are products available without the solvent odors common in butyl-based products, and others that contain no phosphates.
