Some substrates, particularly non-ferrous, require an intermediate process between cleaning and priming for painting.

Trans-Acc regularly incorporates Metal Pretreatment Services for the majority of ferrous and all non-ferrous surfaces.

Trans-Acc will pre-treat depending on specification or application, as required. Pretreatment enhances corrosion resistance of these surfaces, as well as the adhesion of the coating material. To ensure the quality of our pretreated substrates, we perform a range of testing operations, including water break testing, accelerated corrosion resistance testing, salt spray testing, and dry adhesion testing.

Trans-Acc offers Metal Pretreatment Services to customers requesting one of our coating services, or as a stand-alone service.

What are the Different Types of Powder Coating Paint?

Powder coating paint can be divided into two main categories; thermoplastic powder and thermoset polymer. Both types of powder coating paint require heat in order to flow and form a uniform film. Each type of paint has its own unique chemical properties and method of application. Thermoplastic powder is generally applied with a fluidized bed […]

Which Alloys Are Prone to Corrosion, and How Can We Prevent This?

Some exposed metallic alloys, such as those used in electromagnets, are prone to corrosion and may disintegrate into a powder even in clean, temperature-stable interior conditions if not adequately treated to prevent corrosion. Do All Alloys Corrode? Almost all alloys corrode or rust to an extent. Corrosion is a type of oxidation, and rusting is […]

Using Protective Coatings in Heat Treatment

This article introduces a practical technique pioneered by a metallurgist at the Indian Institute of Technology. The technique enables any kind of steel to be heated without the problems associated with oxidation and decarburization. Heat treatment is an important operation in the manufacture of engineered metallic components, machine parts and tools. The oxidation and decarburization […]
