Zirca-Sil MS3 by Bulk Chemicals is a single-step, zirconium-based, phosphate-free pretreatment developed to replace conventional clean-and-coat phosphate pretreatments. It can operate at ambient temperatures for most soil conditions or at higher temperatures for more severe conditions. The pretreatment is virtually sludge-free and non-hazardous, and can be used in as few as two-stage washers. It can be used on virtually all substrates, and, under most paints, corrosion resistance is improved over conventional cleaner/coater iron phosphates, the company says.
