Gardo Hybrid is one of the most advanced technologies when it comes to environmentally-sound and high-performing conversion coating processes on steel. The technology replaces the zinc-phosphate layer by a phosphate-free metal-organic one. This innovative conversion layer provides the same excellent properties and behaviors like a traditional zinc-phosphate.
Gardo® Hybrid fulfills more stringent safety and environmental requirements: the product does not contain any heavy metals and the formation of the metal-organic layer consumes less energy.
Gardo® Hybrid can be easily integrated into existing cold forming operations since no major modifications to the lubricant, treatment line or application process is needed. The reason for this is that the tribological system was not changed; it is still divided into two parts: the conversion layer providing the unique surface and the lubricant on top.
