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:

  1. 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.
  1. Whether you have a recirculating washer, a soak/dip operation, or a manual spray Troy has the best cleaners for your pretreatment process.
  1. 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.
    1. 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.

Processing metal products while respecting the environment can be a challenge.  Powder coating meets the demand for a high level of environmental sensitivity.  Here are just a few ways that powder coating respects the environment:

  • Powder coating is clean. Since powder coating is completed in a booth environment, exhaust air can be recirculated back into the plant. Heated air is not exhausted to the exterior of the building.  Those currently using powder coating for metal pretreatment have seen that their heating and cooling costs have been eliminated for make-up air.
  • Overspray can be used again. Unlike other processes where overspray ends up representing lost material, which can be hard on the environment as well as increase the costs for production, powder paint can be reclaimed and reused during the process.  This saves organizations money as well as protecting the environment.
  • Powder coatings don’t harm the air. While solvent-based paints can create issues with harmful air pollutants, powder coatings have negligible levels of VOCs and are free of hazardous air pollutants.
  • Waste disposal is easy. If you do have powder coating that has gone unused, there is no reason to call in expensive waste disposal services.  The unused powder can be easily reused by simply adding it back to a hopper.  There is little waste and no need for expensive waste systems.
