You asked about the pretreatment process used in steel for powder coating do you mean organic electrostatic powder . Ok first there are two methods for pretreatment of steel 1- dipping ( mean there are different tanks contains chemicals solution and the steel part put inside these tanks) 2- spray ( mean the steel part is hinged on conveyer and then pass through tunnel which have nozzle to spray the chemicals solution on the surface of the part). So what kind of the two methods you have because the sequence and the chemicals is different in the two methods first dipping method 1- chemical degreasing tank or phosphodegreasing solution 2- chemical degreasing tank 3- hot water rinse tank 4- cold water rinse tank 5- phosphate tank ( zinc phosphate or iron phosphate ) 6- cold water rinse tank 7- passivation tank 8- cold water rinse tank 9- dryer second spray method 1- chemical degreasing tank 2- cold water tank 3- phosphate tank ( zinc phosphate or iron phosphate or phosphodegreasing solution) 4- cold water tank 5- air nozzle finally all these steps depended in your line ? your steel ? The application after pretreatment ? So Mohammed if you need more information please tell us more details about your line, your steel, the application after pretreatment.Aly Gomaa

I would be glad to answer your question in such a way that you get the information you obviously need. But........ to do so, I -and any other expert - would need a lot more information about your specific situation. Listing all the different possibilities wouldn't help you, because you still have to determine which system would suit your needs best. See also my answer to letter 21454 in the Powdercoat section. A hint: contact a professional who will help you to make the right decision in a far shorter time then you would need yourself (a number of them are listed in the consultancy section of this site)

The phosphating is the best pretreatment for steel. Before the powder coatings we recommend that you could use iron phosphate type (phospho-degreasing )which is more common
For short cycle heavy iron phosphate rinse, phosphodegreasing, rinse.
For long cycle alkaline degreaser, rinse, phosphodegreasing, rinse, dim rinse.

Hi, T. Either iron phosphating or the more expensive zinc phosphating can be done. Please search the site for 'zinc phosphate' or 'iron phosphate' for more info.
