Perfectly formed in a few process steps
Optimized steel for improved forming and additional benefits. Steel can be bent, printed and stretched into the most diverse and complex shapes. However, this usually requires oiling in the forming process at the customer. With the surface treatments of voestalpine, the steel is already optimally prepared for forming and now has additional advantages.
Do you need a high-quality and sustainable dry forming aid that minimizes process steps and ensures work safety? Then dryform® is the product of your choice.
dryform® is a transparent, non-slip, dry forming aid for hot-dip galvanized or electrogalvanized steel strip. Special wax additives in the dryform® coating ensure these excellent forming properties. dryform® is 100% free of chromium compounds and makes a sustainable contribution to environmental protection.
Do you need a sustainable and permanent premium sealant with outstanding anti-fingerprint properties, excellent formability and excellent corrosion resistance? Then multiface® is the product of your choice.
multiface® is a multifunctional, almost invisible sealant (thin organic coating = TOC) on hot-dip galvanized steel strip (Z, ZM). The excellent properties of multiface® make the product very versatile. It can be washed off with organic solvents, but not with alkaline cleaning agents. A tailor-made polymer matrix ensures highest corrosion stability, best formability, very good paintability and resitance to fingerprints (anti-fingerprint). Please see the EN 50979 standard for more information.
The properties in the inorganic conversion layer make phosphating highly important in the automotive and forming industries The phosphate layer adheres very well to the metallic substrate. It has a microporous and microcapillary surface that simplifies adhesion of organic coatings on the surface of the component.
- Microporous and microcapillary surface
- High level of corrosion protection
- Best lubrication and forming properties
- Low tool wear
- Less galling, lower processing costs
