Multi-Metal Paint Pretreatment - 3 Reasons to use New Generation Conversion Coatings

Corrosion, metal’s biggest enemy…  posing a serious threat to the safety and efficiency of metal components. How to best treat various metal substrates in the same process? What are the different pretreatment processes that can be used for such parts?

This Webinar will briefly compare new generation conversion coatings to phosphate conversions, then review the different processes available. A focus on quality needs, costs aspects and process automation will be given.

Across many industries and markets companies require higher performance, increased flexibility as well the need and the wish to reduce the impact on nature. We will give you an outlook on future development, which address these challenges.

Remanufacturing Cleaning

Isn’t it a waste that durable goods like trains, cars and earthmoving equipment are being scrapped after their service life? Then it is good to know that, with the right remanufacturing processes, a lot of value which is embedded in the parts of the vehicle or machine can be retained. Not only our environment, society and end users will benefit from this practice, but certainly also remanufacturing companies themselves. As we’re talking about working on used parts, which have had a tough service life under challenging conditions, one of the most critical operations is cleaning. In this webinar Henkel’s cleaning specialists will show you the typical cleaning applications in reman operations, how to increase efficiency and minimize waste & rewash rates.

Note: Remanufacturing is the industrial practice of returning a product to at least its original performance with a warranty equivalent or better than that of the newly manufactured product

Adding Value to Aluminum Upgrading Surface Treatment

During the last period of time, we saw how the aluminum had become one of the most common material for applications such as; Automotive industry, bikes, building industry,… even more, with the arrival of the e-mobility, led lighting,…  the usage of the aluminum also reach new levels and built new business opportunities.

Those new applications, and the coming ones should be approached with a sustainable point of view, as the aluminum business is doing with the recyclability. The new aluminum alloys arriving to the building industry are a clear example of that sustainable approach, and it will be a common factor in the coming aluminum future. The recyclability will growth and the metal pretreatment should be adapted. So, we need to adapt our processes for reduction of water consumption, reduction on energy consumption, increasing productivity, reducing CO2 foot print,… at the end, give a sustainable solution for the aluminum metal pretreatment, with the highest quality standard for each process.

Stainless Steel Pickling without Nitric Acid

For many decades a mix of nitric acid with hydrofluoric acid has been the standard pickling chemistry for stainless steel. Although the pickling results are very good, this technology comes with several disadvantages for health, safety and environment. On top of that, chemistry consumption and thus disposal costs can be pretty high. For stainless steel processing companies who pickle themselves and for pickling jobbers there are large opportunities in exploring alternative pickling solutions which offer comparable quality, but considerably lower HSE hazards and disposal costs.

Henkel’s pickling specialists give their view & solution on how to drastically reduce the mentioned disadvantages but keep surface finishing results of your pickling plant on a high level.
