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.

Navigating Coating Choices: Trans-ACC’s Insight into Powder and Liquid Coatings
As explored in the article “The pros and cons of powder and liquid coatings” by Fleet Equipment Magazine, both powder and liquid coatings present unique advantages and disadvantages in the world of surface finishing. When it comes to powder coatings, one significant benefit lies in their lower Volatile Organic Compound (VOC) content compared to many […]
Trans-ACC: Unveils the Basics of Powder Coating
As explained by Adventure Play Systems’ Powder Coating 101: Powder coating is a versatile dry powder used to coat metals, offering an excellent alternative to traditional liquid paints. Unlike liquid paint, it is applied electrostatically and then cured under heat. This method finds extensive use in metal finishing for various applications such as vehicle parts, […]
Trans-ACC: Revolutionizes Powder Coating for Non-Conductive Substrates
As reported by pfonline’s Article on “Powder Coating Non-Conductive Substrates,”. The innovative IFS PureClad Powder and advanced application and cure systems provide coaters of all sizes with an efficient and effective operational solution. Whether handling a few cabinets a week or mass-producing thousands, both coaters and end-use customers can benefit from the advantages of powder-coated […]
HTE Powder Coatings Take Coverage to the Next Level
One of the most notable appeals of powder coating is that it generates less waste due to a high material utilization rate. First, unlike liquid paint which is always a spray-to-waste process, powder overspray can be reclaimed and recycled, depending on the capabilities of the coater, the number of colors utilized, the absence of contaminants […]
