Phosphate-free paint pretreatment for multiple metals
Interlox® is our second generation zirconium-based, phosphate-free paint pretreatment process that provides superior paint adhesion and corrosion resistance for a wide variety of metal substrates.
Unlike conventional paint pretreatment processes such as iron phosphate and zinc phosphate, Interlox® 5707 operates at ambient temperature and produces little to no sludge, contributing to substantial energy savings and consistent process performance. In addition, Interlox® 5707 utilizes single product replenishment formulation, allowing for automated control and leading to simplified process operation.
What inspires us
Why we developed Interlox® 5707
One of the primary challenges today for the paint pretreatment market is successfully eliminating phosphorus-based processes while maintaining superior corrosion and paint performance. As manufacturers gain a better understanding of process control and become more cost conscious, they desire products capable of improving production efficiency and process sustainability while reducing energy consumption.
We developed Interlox® 5707 with these challenges in mind. By focusing on phosphorus-free technology, we successfully eliminated the many adverse attributes associated with iron and zinc phosphates, including sludge formation and costly line maintenance. Interlox® 5707 provides manufacturers an environmentally responsible solution that improves production efficiency and reduces costs.
