PRE – TREATMENTS
One of the most important things to get right when applying coatings is the pre-treatment stage. Ensuring the substrate is adequately prepared is essential to obtain optimum coating performance. Here at East Midland Coatings we have a variety of pre-treatment methods available to us such as:
A range of blasting methods and media varieties allows us to blast to SA 2.5 standard. This is perfect for stripping of previous coatings and
creating the ideal substrate profile ready for coating.
All coated parts are degreased to some degree. We have several different degreasing methods available to us depending on the
requirement. These include Ultrasonic, Aqueous, Prebaking and more..
Zinc Phosphate & Chromate
These treatments are ideal for optimising adhesion and corrosion protection. A part suitably treated with Zinc Phosphate
and the correct coating can achieve resistance up to 3,000 salt spray hours.
We use a variety of techniques to mask our customers products. Whether it be as simple as masking tape or specific customised jigs, we are
experts in finding the best masking method for the job.
