CAL PREPTM 2353 is a one-step, polymer-based cleaner and pretreatment for all metals, most plastic and plated surfaces. It is designed to easily clean oils and greases, disperse particulate soils and simultaneously deposit a polymeric resin on the substrate for superior temporary unpainted corrosion protection and superior paint adhesion.
The cleaner is said to not consume water and creates no waste as the product is used in a recirculating system. Particulate soils should be filtered out, and the oil removed from the parts becomes part of the polymer coating. Once the coating is cured, the oil cannot migrate out and it never compromises paint adhesion.
This product has been shown to provide similar salt spray results to iron phosphate and increase paint adhesion when applied over tri-valent chrome plating.
