Electrocoat Association is offering a webinar this November titled “Looking Back to Drive the Future.” The webinar takes place Nov. 6, 2019, at 2:00 p.m. EST. Registration is now open for this complimentary webinar.
Thin film (ZrO) pretreatment has been on OEM vehicles around the world for nearly 12 years, although some believe it is still an experimental conversion coating. In fact, their key questions include: Is this film pretreatment a viable technology that provides sufficient protection for high quality OEM vehicles in the most severe corrosive environments in North America, and how does bare steel corrosion performance compare to other substrates with zirconium and zinc phosphate conversion coatings?
Kevin Cunningham of PPG is presenting the webinar, which will review field surveys of cars and trucks with this technology to evaluate how they are performing in the real world versus laboratory tests and their various predictions.
