Zinc phosphating plus cleaning in one step?
August 8, 2010
We painted (powder coating) cubicle panels (800 x 800 x 20000) made from Galvanized steel sheet using an iron phospahte chemical pre-treatment with 5 stages, the last stages was passivation with chromic acid.
Do think there will be no problem in terms of adhesion properties of the paint?
Please be advised also if is possible to have a ZINC PHOSPHATING & CLEANING SOLUTION in one process?

In case of Powder coating you will deal with aluminum, steel you will need 2 lines in one line (Phosphating for Steel + chromating for aluminum) it is better to use a one Degreasing tank for Steel, Aluminum, separate tanks for De-Rusting,Etching (desmut), chromating, phosphating due to
1- if the tank has a big quantity of contaminations you will go to change the tank
2- for this reason we should confirm on cleaning first after that treatment
3- also at starting of treatment all material more dusty, More degrease, rust , you can clean at first and keeping the important tanks far from contaminations
