Direct coatability

Direct coating

Optimized steel for direct coating. The right coating often gives steel surfaces that extra something. That is why voestalpine developed a special additional coating that can be applied without having to prepare the steel surface.

multiface® - the high-tech sustainable allrounder

The multiface® coating is 1 to 2 µm thick and is a multifunctional, almost invisible sealant (thin organic coating = TOC) on hot-dip galvanized steel strip (Z, ZM) with excellent corrosion protection properties and direct powder coating capabilities.

  • Sustainable and environmentally friendly sealant

  • Anti-fingerprint properties

  • Excellent corrosion protection

  • Good joinability

  • Compatibility with emulsion solutions

  • Reduced down to three process steps

  • Good forming properties

  • Direct paintability

clearcover® - chromium-free passivation 2.0

clearcover® is an environmentally friendly and sustainable passivation system without chromium III or chromium VI and is free from heavy metals such as molybdenum, manganese or cobalt. The additional innovative treatment is applied to hot-dip galvanized (Z, ZM, ZF) or electrogalvanized steel strip and can be supplied in combination with oil or phosphating.

  • Sustainable and environmentally compatible passivation

  • Excellent corrosion protection during storage

  • Reliable corrosion protection during transport

  • Good resistance to emulsions

  • Excellent weldability

  • Direct paintability

Direct cost savings through reduced number of process steps (oiling, degreasing, rinsing + drying)

When using steel strip coated with multiface®, the oiled part must not be degreased, rinsed or dried. The direct formability and excellent adhesive properties of the material make it possible to directly powder-coat or adhesive-bond the material after deep-drawing. This substantially reduces the processing costs.
