As a result of increased carbon emissions due to high energy consumption in the surface finishing industry, paint applicators are taking countermeasures against global warming by implementing strategies to reduce carbon footprint or seek complete carbon neutrality. In most scenarios, this necessitates a technology change.

Conventional processes for paint applications have endured for many years due to low costs and performance capabilities. However, many have hidden costs related to energy consumption, wastewater treatment and maintenance requirements. Collectively, these make conventional pretreatments highly unsustainable in a world seeking greener solutions.

Atotech’s pretreatment technologies offer paint applicators sustainable solutions to replace conventional processes without compromising quality and cost. Our next-generation processes also enhance surface treatment operations, generate less waste, consume less energy, and offer safer working environments.

Atotech’s paint support technologies are designed for the modern paint applicating company, offering sustainable and economical solutions to replace outdated processes.

In this webinar, we will explore the following:

• Conventional pretreatments and associated costs
• Process advantages of sustainable pretreatments
• Atotech’s portfolio of cleaners and conversion coatings
• Carbon footprint reduction possibilities
• Economic breakdown of sustainable pretreatment
• Case studies

To learn more about Atotech’s range of products and how they can be tailored to your application, join us in our upcoming webinar “Save the green – How sustainable paint pretreatment can increase profitability and reduce CO2 footprint”.
