PPG VERSABOND™ Pretreatment
Versabond is a fast, kinetic-efficient zinc-phosphate pretreatment system that improves corrosion resistance on mixed-metal substrates while enabling manufacturers to realize the benefits of extended bath life, reduced sludge and lower processing temperatures.
PPG ZIRCOBOND® Pretreatment
Based on zirconium chemistry and a proprietary blend of additives, Zircobond pretreatment products cut sludge by-product from the pretreatment process by at least 80 percent compared to zinc-phosphate-based products. As an added benefit, Zircobond can be used in existing pretreatment lines.
PPG X-BOND™ Pretreatment
X-Bond zirconium-based, thin-film pretreatment system prepares steel, galvanized steel and aluminum substrates for optimum paint adhesion. With performance equivalent to that of iron phosphates, it provides excellent corrosion resistance and is compatible with low application temperatures.
