Independent testing results show that this product meets the Qualicoat Performance requirements for powder coated aluminum.

SafeGard CC-3400 – conversion coating for aluminum, zinc & magnesium that is normally applied on a dip or spray line. SafeGard CC-3400 is a hot applied (135-140F) product that has excellent high temperature stability and does not mud crack.  This non-sludging product can be effectively applied by spray or dip using most standard application equipment with little or no modification.  (see /chromate-free-conversion-coating.html)

Why are the right conversion coatings and final seals critical to your success? 

Even though the cost per square foot of a 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. 

All SafeGard Chromate Free conversion coatings are easy to use, require only simple QC and are environmentally safe.

We normally help to optimize the performance by careful selection of the cleaners and deoxidizer.  The choices are based upon the soils that are on parts before application.   So call us today and let us help you set up the perfect chromate free conversion coating system.
