Zinc Phosphate Pre-treatments

If you are looking for Zinc Phosphate pre-treatments, then look no further than Pym and Wildsmith. We are proud to be one of the country’s leading providers of metal finishing services and specialise in providing components with protective, durable coatings. We have over three decades of experience working in the industry, and in this time have established a highly in-depth knowledge and understanding of metal surface coatings. We’ve invested heavily in our equipment and facilities so that we can expand our services and accommodate as many different customer requirements as we can. One of the services we can provide to our customers includes our pre-treatment services – these can help to enhance the benefits of your metal coating.


The benefits of investing in a pre-treatment

Having your component undertake a preliminary process is ideal for surfaces that require e-coating or another type of protective surface coating. The performance of e-coat, powder coat, and metal spraying paint relies on the reaction between the paint and the surface itself – therefore having a clean and untarnished surface is beneficial. Our pre-treatment process uses a specifically chosen chemical to clean and prepare your component so that the paint provides the highest levels of performance and protection to the surface it has been applied to. Most of our metal coatings have the sole purpose of providing a long-lasting protective layer over the original surface of the component – so it is important that the paint is applied to a surface that the paint will be able to stick to and dry onto effectively. We want our customers to get the best performance and benefits from our metal surface coating services, and our metal pre-treatments can help to support these goals.


Zinc Phosphate coatings

Zinc Phosphate is one of the many different chemicals that we can use in our pre-treatment processes. Zinc Phosphate coating is a type of conversion coating, and when used alongside e-coating can become an incredibly adherent coating that offers a consistent and uniform coverage. The combination of both coatings also improves the coating adhesion properties and enhances the paint’s corrosion resistance even further. These factors have made Zinc Phosphate primer a popular choice for projects within the automotive sector. When it comes to all of our pre-treatment services, we have a wide range of chemicals and options available. As leading experts, we will take the time to thoroughly assess the parts before determining the right choice of treatment that will meet your requirements. Our goal is to make sure that we provide a high-quality solution that ticks all the right boxes for you and your component.
