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.

Benefits and Limitations of Powder Coating
Powder coating is a dry finishing process in which free-flowing, thermoplastic or thermoset powder material, rather than a liquid suspension, is applied to a surface, melted, and then allowed to dry and harden into a protective coating. Typically, the powder is applied via electrostatic spray deposition (ESD) to an electrically grounded metal substrate. Once the […]
Powder Coating Bonderized Steel
Bonderized steel consists of hot dipped galvanized steel (G90 grade) that is pretreated with a phosphate followed by a chromate sealer and dried off in an oven. The process produces a dull, gray-colored finish. Bonderized is commonly referred to as “Paint Grip.” This product is commonly used for roofing, wall panels, and coil. As for […]
Powder Coating Non-Conductive Substrates
Much work has been done on formulations for wood and MDF, but other substrates such as fiberglass, drywall and many others are also viable options. A variety of applications Manufacturers of kitchen cabinetry, commercial casework, hospitality furniture, pre-finished sheet goods and office furniture manufacturers are extremely excited about the potential these low cure powder coatings […]
CARC Paint Storage is Different than Every Day Paint Protection
Military vehicles, equipment, ships and aircraft are all exposed to extreme conditions. For the U.S. Armed Forces, only military grade paints that meet stringent military standards are suitable for these conditions. Chemical Agent Resistant Coatings (CARC) are well-known military grade paints. Products meeting this specification resist the penetration of chemical agents and require special storage. […]
