Q. I have been informed about nanoceramic pretreatment prior powder painting. Any experience? Is it really good? Where is the catch? D.K.
A. I am aware of this pretreatment process and supplier. My early impressions of it are favorable. My experience with it has been on a non-ferrous substrate evaluated on a lab scale. It is a recent development of a large, reputable surface finishing company and I don’t see a catch. I would say it deserves further investigation on your part. It has the potential to simplify your process and save energy due to its lower operating temperature.
