Best corrosion protection from production to further processing
Steel optimized against wind and weather. Steel is often found in applications exposed to the most extreme conditions. Like hardly any other material, it is exposed to the force of the elements. With surface treatments made by voestalpine, the steel is optimally prepared to meet the challenge. At voestalpine, a great deal of importance is attached to perfect workability in every processing step.
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 resistance to fingerprints (anti-fingerprint). Please see the EN 50979 standard for more information.
clearcover® is the sustainable and environmentally friendly passivation coating for hot-dip galvanized steel strip
Do you need a sustainable passivation coating with outstanding corrosion protection properties and very good processing characteristics? Then clearcover® is the product of your choice.
clearcover® is the new, sustainable and environmentally friendly passivation coating without chromium or chromium compounds. The passivation is also free of other heavy metals. The less than one μm thick inorganic coating on galvanized steel strip provides good storage and transport corrosion protection and supports formability and bondability in customer processes.
Do you want a corrosion protection oil that increases cleanliness in your production processes, enhances work safety, features improved tribology and is compatible with your downstream processes? Then prelube2 is the product of your choice.
prelube2 and its optimized tribology make it possible to work with less oil coating yet maintain the same level of formability, thus reducing oil leakage and oil redistribution on strip during storage. prelube2 has the potential to reduce the friction coefficient, prolong intervals for tool cleaning and make production cleaner. For the highest forming requirements, prelube2 is just the right choice. Whether in the automotive or any other industry, prelube2 offers you the possibility of making production even more efficient.
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
Corrosion protection properties in comparison
Protection against corrosion on metallic components is an omnipresent topic, and a variety of different surface treatments are highly effective. clearcover® offers optimum corrosion protection in many applications.
