Surface Treatments and Primers
Service Detail from Omnikote Ltd.
Most coating failures are due to corrosion beneath the coating, or poor adhesion. Primers are designed to improve adhesion and/or corrosion resistance.
Everything we coat has some form of surface treatment and/or primer. Each of our plants has the capability to apply primers by:
- Wet spray
- Electrostatic wet
Commonly used primers include:
- Two pack epoxy formulations
- Zinc rich primers
- Chromate and phosphate systems
Selecting the optimum priming solution depends on the substrate and coating process.
Primer range includes: Iron Phosphate, Zinc Phosphate, Chromate, Bekryzinc, Zinc Rich Primers, Etching Primers, Kephos, 2 Pack Epoxy primer, Zinga, Epigrip, Metaguard, Zinc Silicate
