The Importance of Proper Pretreatment in Powder Coating

Why Pretreat for Powder Coatings?

Any given metallic surface has a layer of dirt, oil, or mill scale that must be cleaned and removed prior to powder coating. A coating will not adhere well to a contaminated surface and will result in poor performance, thus making proper pretreatment necessary.

There are a variety of methods that will clean and remove soils from metals. The pretreatment method used is determined by the part to be coated (size, configuration, material), the type of soil to be removed (dust, wax, oil, etc.), and the performance requirements of the finished product.

For more information from TCI Powder Coatings on pretreatment, please refer to their Troubleshooting Guide or click here to speak with TCI’s experienced team to help you with your powder coating needs.

Intech Services and TCI Powder Coatings have partnered to create TruPak, a program that offers over 300 of TCI's most popular powder coatings in 1, 3, 5, and 10 pound boxes. Click here for more information on TruPak powder coatings.
