Aluminum Conversion Coatings
All of Sanchem's chromate-free paint pretreatments and aluminum conversion coatings products are easy to use and cost effective. All SafeGard CC products are chromium and chromate-free and are environmentally safe. Sanchem Inc. is the metal finishing industry's solutions provider for proprietary chromate-free aluminum pretreatment chemicals, water based rust preventives and rust preventive coatings.
Why are the right chemical conversion coatings critical to your success? Even though the cost per square foot of a chemical conversion coating is low when compared to the cost of paints and powder coatings, if you pick a poor quality pretreatment system you will be paying the price for years. What is the cost of your reworked jobs, recalls, or the jobs you will not get because of a low performing total coating system? No one ever lost a job because of producing a higher quality product at a lower total cost. Our goal is to MAKE YOU MORE MONEY by optimizing your production processes from start to finish. We have the aluminum conversion coatings to fit your needs.
