Chemetall Will Be Exhibiting and Presenting at the TCI Powder Coatings Customer Appreciation Event on June 19-21, 2014 in Miami, Florida

NEW PROVIDENCE, NJ--(Marketwired - April 21, 2014) - Chemetall will be exhibiting and presenting at the TCI Powder Coatings Customer Appreciation Event on June 19-21, 2014 at the Trump International in Miami, Florida. This is an opportunity for Chemetall and TCI to acknowledge our valued customers.

The "Successful Pretreatment Options" presentation will focus on different pretreatment options -- mechanical & chemical pretreatment with an emphasis on "Chemetall's Next Generation Advanced Pretreatments." A high-quality metal pretreatment (surface preparation) combining conversion coating and the appropriate organic coating is essential for the durability of finished products. Methods for pretreatment vary depending on the material to be painted, the paint to be used and the desired properties of the resulting finish. Pretreatment of a metal surface can include chemical cleaning, mechanical cleaning, and/or chemical conversion coatings. Parts must be pretreated and prepared well prior to the subsequent process. If the selected pretreatment method does not remove unwanted soils from the metal surface, it will affect the paint adhesion and corrosion protection. It will enable you to make informed decisions in the selection, design, installation, and upgrade of a pretreatment system. It will highlight topics including soils, substrates, cleaners, rinsing and drying, and the means to verify the cleaning and rinsing effectiveness. Process automation, safety, troubleshooting, and preventative maintenance of process equipment will also be covered.
