Plaforization and Toran Products are Environmentally
Due to their extremely low vapor pressure, Plaforization and Toran
products emit only very small amounts of VOCs. For example, a properly designed and operated installation treating 2 million square feet of metal per year would emit between 199 lb. and 1,467 lb. per year, depending on the product used. The products contain no halogenated
compounds, ozone-depleting compounds, carcinogens, mutagens,
or hazardous air pollutants, and they biodegrade to CO2 and
The Plaforization and Toran processes use no water and are not rinsed, so nothing goes into the water stream.
The Plaforization and Toran processes create no sludge,
so it creates nothing for landfill. The only thing you throw
out is the filtered fines that came in on the parts.
Oil is not skimmed or dumped, but is used in
The Plaforization and Toran Processes are Easy to Use
Treatment time is one minute in a single tank,
with no rinse, followed by a 5-minute drip-off, blow-off,
and drying, and then the part is ready to paint.
The bath is extremely stable, which means you
get consistently excellent finished parts. Also, there are
no daily bath checks to conduct. Bath analyses are performed
for you every other month.
Multi-metals can be treated, even simultaneously.
The bath is unheated, so there is no waiting
for bath warm-up before starting operations.
Capital and Operating Costs are Lower
Since Plaforization and Toran installations are single-stage
with no rinse, they have a smaller footprint and are less
There are fewer and smaller fans and pumps.
You spend nothing on natural gas to heat tanks
because it is a room-temperature process.
Bath checks need to be conducted only every
