Chemetall will highlight its non-phosphorous pretreatment for 3-stage spray washers. Gardobond® AP 9811 is a liquid, phosphorus-free, dry-in-place pretreatment that enhances the performance of subsequently-applied organic liquid and powder coatings. Multi-metal Gardobond® AP 9811 reacts with steel, aluminum and zinc substrates to enhance paint adhesion and corrosion resistance properties. Gardobond® AP 9811 is free of any regulated heavy metals. A minimum of three stages is required for this high performing product which is compatible with mild steel equipment. This easy-to-use product may help improve customers’ cycle time, yield, and capacity utilization.
