Chemetall’s Oxsilan pretreatment products are engineered as an alternative to zinc phosphate processes. These eco-friendly, multi-metal products are designed to withstand cyclic corrosion testing, outdoor exposure, neutral salt spray and more. The products form a dual coating, which is more robust than simple zirconium coatings alone. Chemetall says Oxsilan is based on organofunctional silanes that are specially synthesized to deliver high performance when used with modern electrocoat paints. These silanes react and form strong chemical bonds with both the substrate and the paint to form a lasting bond.
