Plaforization and Toran products give you great performance on your finished products.

A manufacturer of complex motor armatures had a conventional washer that failed to clean very complex parts (layered disks with an inserted shaft). Plaforization proved to be the solution, because it penetrates exceptionally well and removes the oils.

Highly polished steel and stainless steel caused severe topcoat adhesion problems after conventional cleaning. But Plaforization solved the problem, because the one-micron seal promotes adhesion by forming a strong bond with the epoxy powder.

After treatment, parts will not flash rust for weeks before coating when stored indoors. That means no rusting as your parts emerge from the washer. It means you can do batch coating when orders come in with particular specifications.

Adhesion is outstanding because the one-micron seal forms a chemical and physical bond with the topcoat. It works to promote adhesion even on stainless steel and highly-polished surfaces. With Toran technology, a chemical and physical bond is made directly to the metal rather than through a phosphate bridge. And Toran cures in part along with the topcoat, creating very strong intercoat adhesion. The result is that a Toran-treated and coated part can withstand difficult soak and boiling water tests.

Plaforization pretreatment makes a phosphate of the substrate metal so that, for example, it forms a zinc phosphate over galvanized steel and an iron phosphate over steel, with the one-micron seal on top.

With Toran technology, a chemical and physical bond is made directly to the metal rather than through a phosphate bridge. And Toran cures in part along with the topcoat, creating very strong intercoat adhesion. The result is that a Toran-treated and coated part can withstand difficult soak and boiling water tests.

Plaforization's corrosion resistance is better than conventional iron phosphate on steel because of the one-micron seal in the Plaforization process, and is of course even higher on metals such as galvanized steel and aluminum. Toran gives consistent results in the zinc phosphate range.

Impact resistance is excellent, because the one-micron seal is very flexible and does not crack or chip under the topcoat as ordinary pretreatments do.

 

“Ecophor A447 has performed well, meeting or exceeding our required performance specifications.”

"We tried for a year to disprove Plaforization™ before we decided to use it. Plaforization™ really works."

[In addition to energy and capital cost savings], “a bonus for us is the great performance and consistent results we get.”

“We have been using Plaforization since the spring of 2004 and found that the adhesion of our liquid and powder paints is dramatically improved. Our parts rejections due to poor adhesion are a thing of the past.”
