What’s New with Airable? – Conversion Coating Chemical
August 12, 2022 Ohio Soybean Council
Airable is developing a soy-based conversion coating chemical. Conversion coatings are chemical or electro-chemical treatments applied to a metal surface. The surface of the material will chemically react to form a thin, superficial coating of altered metal. This new coating offers a protective layer for the material, enhances surface hardness, and improves adherence so that other coatings—such as paint—stick to the surface. These conversion coatings can be applied either by spraying the chemicals onto the metal surface or by submerging the metal into the treatment. This formulation can be used in any sector that primes metal for painting, with obvious applications in the automotive industry.
