Some substrates, particularly non-ferrous, require an intermediate process between cleaning and priming for painting.
Trans-Acc regularly incorporates 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 Pretreatment Services to customers requesting one of our coating services, or as a stand-alone service.

The basics of liquid and powder coatings
New to liquid and powder coating? Consider this. According to the Fabricator: “Almost all metal fabricators consider on-time part delivery a key metric. In today’s just-in-time manufacturing environment, the parts need to be there so the customers don’t miss a beat in their own manufacturing facilities. “To maintain their ability to get parts where they […]
“CARC” (Chemical Agent Resistant Coating)
New to CARC? Consider this. According to Military Trader: “Chemical Agent Resistant Coating or CARC is, in simple terms, a low gloss military version of the polyurethane paints that were developed for use in commercial industry. CARC has a low porosity that prevents chemical warfare agents from “soaking in” to the finish and makes decontamination […]
Top 5 Myths about Powder Coating
When it comes to powder coating, be wary of these myths. According to ICI Online: “Many people have their preconceived notions about powder coating which are not all very accurate. Before discussing the top 5 myths about powder coating, let’s go over the process and how it works. What is powder coat? “Powder coating is […]
Pretreatment for Painting
Have you ever wondered why you need to pretreat before you paint? Consider this. According to Products Finishing: A high-quality conversion coating is essential for the durability of painted metal goods. The process of applying an inorganic conversion coating to a metallic surface involves removing any surface contaminants, then chemically converting the clean surface into […]
