Pre Treatment is the secret to the best finish


To ensure our team provides the very best services to all customers we make sure we learn about the new technologies becoming available in the industry, especially when it involves ‘Pre-Treatments’. It is absolutely necessary that before any object is coated it receives the right pre-treatment before-hand to guarantee that you receive the best finish available. This way your object is certain to look better than it has ever done before. 


Here at Impact Coatings it is important that our environmental footprint is as small as possible, so this is the reason why we use environmentally friendly products and processes. Sticking to our eco-friendly system we prefer to use Zirconium Phosphate as it is safer than already existing products used in industry. For the pre-treatment of more delicate items we use an acid pickle process and for the larger less delicate items we provide a hand prepared treatment. To remove old paint rust we perform a shot or bead blasting method to ensure the item is not damaged in the process. So please call our team for more information today! 


Further details of our range of Pre-treatments include: 


Shotblasting, Bead Blasting, used to remove old paint rust, or just to give a rough key to steel using our own Shotblasting facilities. We can advise what can be done and what can’t be done.


Zirconium Phosphate latest technology very environmentally friendly, very good pre-treatment for a variety of metals giving extra life protection. 


Iron Phosphate pre-treatment an old system used mainly on internal components not as long life span as Zirconium, but still good protection on a variety of metals. 


Acid Pickle Process used to soften aluminium surfaces to complement our Zirconium Phosphate Process, also used were rusting items can’t be Shotblast due to there delicate nature. We will advise you on what can be done and what can’t. 


Hand prepared pre-treatment using solvent or environmentally friendly cleaners for larger items. Items can then be etch primed using non chromate wet spray in our large wet spray booth also giving extra life protection. 


Our team believe obtaining the correct pre-treatment is essential to a quality finish. We endeavour to provide a pre-treatment for a variety of substrates, ranging from aluminium, timber, zinc-plated items, brass, copper, mild steel and countless other substrates. The team at Impact Coatings have a wealth of experience in the coating industry and, therefore, can confidently give you advice on a variety of solutions.
