DuBois' DuraLink Minimizes Pretreatment Floor Space
Product line designed to help eliminate phosphates and reduce energy costs while improving coating system performance.
DuBois Chemicals’ DuraLink is a non-chrome pretreatment compound used to enhance coating corrosion resistance and paint adhesion. The company says this line is designed for performance phosphate-free, dry-in-place pretreatments. These pretreatments are said to operate in as little as three stages, which minimizes the required floor pace. At FABTECH, visitors can have their souvenir part pretreated at the DuBois booth prior to powder coating; meet DuBois’ technicians; and learn more about eliminating phosphates and reducing energy costs while improving coating system performance.
