Sustainable solutions for
white goods manufacturers
More sustainable surface finishing solutions for the industry
For the white goods industry, we offer a truly comprehensive product range for both painted and plated surfaces. Our process solutions ensure the prolonged service life for household appliances. We are dedicated to developing processes and products that conserve natural resources such as water and energy, minimize or eliminate waste generation, and reduce operating costs. In providing innovative processes, our paint support technologies enable corporations to achieve sustainability initiatives and to reduce CO₂ footprint. Our paint pretreatment and paint removal solutions provide a truly superior approach for the white goods industry. Also, plated components require a robust surface to withstand frequent use while providing an attractive finish. Our range of decorative and functional plating technologies are designed to meet the industries demands.
Reliable, high-quality processes, equipment, and chemistry for the entire spectrum of functional and decorative surface treatments, which meet the needs of the household appliances industry
Our paint support technologies offer a sustainable alternative to conventional processes, free of hazardous/regulated substances while supporting CO2 reduction
We have developed several processes for high performing substrate cleaning and conversion coating to ensure superior paint adhesion and corrosion resistance
Paint support technologies
Our decorative chrome solutions for plastic and metal applications provide durability and attractiveness for heavily used components like handles, knobs, door trims, or drawer fronts. Our sustainable series of Cr(VI)-free solutions, covering plastic pretreatment through to trivalent chromium decorative coatings and post treatments, offer a wide range of colors and finishes that help create cohesive interior aesthetics that complement modern design concepts.
Cr(VI)-free post-treatment processes for TriChrome® for enhanced corrosion protection
Corrosion protection coatings
Exposure to high temperature and humid environments, like those for gas cook tops, air conditioners and washing machines require excellent corrosion protection, chemical resistance and stability. With our zinc, zinc nickel and zinc flake coating finishes, Our corrosion protection systems achieve the required performance from white goods manufacturers.
Zinni® 220 + EcoTri® NC + Zintek® Top XT: System with stainless steel appeal, passing 120 cycles of Prohesian cyclic corrosion test
Zylite® Eco + Tridur® Blue + Friction Additive IX: System for self-tapping screws achieving the lowest possible friction for drilling into powder coated steel
Wear resistant coatings
Various components in household appliances require both excellent wear and corrosion resistance, critical for durability and longevity. Our electroless nickel coatings provide outstanding corrosion protection to units used in wet conditions, such as ice cube machines, food processing equipment and refrigeration devices. Our trivalent hard chrome process lends superior wear resistance to frequently handled dynamic parts and those in contact with various substances such as cutting blades, shafts, or scratch resistant surfaces.
