Spray Pre-Treatment is conducted for the same reason Dip Pre-Treatment is carried out, this is simply just a different type of the same process.
Spray Pre-Treatment is another area of commercial and industrial paint and powder finishing systems that TD Finishing specialise in. Each system, plant and finishing line we manufacture, we also install – with the ability to also remove your old plant, prior to installation if required.
The Purpose of Spray Pre-Treatment
Much like Dip Tank Pre-Treatment, Spray Pre-Treatment is a process carried out on metal products prior to applying powder coating or painted finishes. Pre-Treatment, whether that be Spray or Dip Tank is a chemical cleaning process that cleans the metal substrate ready for paint or powder application.
The Difference Between Spray Pre-Treatment & Dip Pre-Treatment
Spray Pre-Treatment systems are generally used for higher output operations, designed with an overhead conveyor system that runs the metal products into the spray tunnel, which features an internal spray system. The large spray tunnel is divided into numerous stages comprising of chemical and water rinse stages and correctly designed drain zones. The overhead conveyor carries the metal components through the various stages at a designated speed with each stage designed to give the correct process time in each zone, timings are specified by the chemical process being used.
Dip Tank Systems
Dip Tank Pre-Treatment systems can consist of anything from a simple 3 stage system with manual gantry through to a Qualicoat approved 11 stage plant.
