Reducing pretreatment chemicals and water costs takes careful planning
Water constitutes most of the solutions in a powder-coating surface preparation system.
As a result, water plays major role in your ability to clean, rinse phosphatize, and seal-rinse parts before powder coating. Overuse of this natural resource not only wastes water but also drives up energy and chemical use. As a result, your costs go up. This article points out ways to conserve water and chemicals to cut costs. It includes information on raw-water quality and improvement options, water-use documentation, soils and pretreatment chemistries, TDS [total dissolved solids] and pH variables, system design, and chemistry select
