Pretreatment Chemistry for Decorative Applications
Technic supplies a wide range of cleaners and pretreatments for decorative finishing applications including soak cleaners, electrolytic cleaners and pickling solutions.
Pre-cleaning, either by solvent emulsion degreaser or heavy duty soak cleaners, is an essential first step in decorative metal finishing to ensure plating quality. The cleaning and pretreatment process removes contaminants such as oils, greases, buffing compounds and drawing lubricants and can be applied either by a spray or immersion.
The use of electrolytic cleaners and etching or pickling solutions may also be required depending on your material and the required finished. Pickling may also be combined with electrical current to be more effective. Our range of advanced pretreatment solutions are specific for aluminium, brass, silver, steel, zinc diecast and many others.
Technic experts can assist in the customization of process steps required for your specific application in order to ensure high performance.
