Chemeon and Coventya Commence Global Distribution Agreement
Chemeon Surface Technology (Minden, Nev.) and Coventya Inc. (Brooklyn Heights, Ohio), have entered into a global distribution agreement regarding the Chemeon portfolio of MIL-SPEC QPD/QPL hex-free/Trivalent Conversion Coating technology (TCP) that provides adhesion and corrosion protection for aluminum and alloys.
“Coventya supplies specialty chemicals for surface finishing in over 60 countries and Chemeon welcomes the opportunity to have our unique products and customer solutions enhance their offerings,” said Madylon Meiling, Ph.D., CEO of Chemeon.
The two companies say the global distribution relationship represents a future-focused perspective for non-hex chrome conversion coatings.
Lon Thrasher, Coventya Group Chief Operating Officer stated; “we are excited to be working with Chemeon, a market leader with state of the art QPL listed trivalent conversion coating technology for Aluminum for providing our global teams not only the confidence of performance, but the backing of their support and expertise to help our customers realize the benefit especially for the new, and exciting eTCP technology platform”
Chemeon’s revolutionary eTCP platform is QPL listed
, and the first trivalent conversion coating system with a distinct color of the applied layer. This patented technology is far-reaching across many industries and applications. In addition to improved corrosion performance over earlier generation TCP products, eTCP provides a conversion layer with visual verification that parts are coated and protected. Visual verification has always been a challenge from past TCP offerings, which can appear untreated after application, and establishes the Chemeon eTCP technology a leadership position in this field.
Chemeon QPL 81706 listed TCP products, which include TCP-HF (Hexavalent Free) and Chemeon eTCP, are designed to replace the known carcinogen hexavalent chrome and meet requirements for MIL DTL 5541 applications, immersion, spray, brush and touch up pen.
The two companies have already developed a strong working relationship with virtual training and product introduction, providing an in-depth working knowledge of Chemeon technologies and technical support for the benefit of Coventya’s wide array of global customers.
