Geomet (Dracal) technology offers an environmentally friendly alternative for coating or galvanizing small metal products via solvents, mechanical processes or electroplating. With this process, a zinc-aluminium lamellar structure of coating is applied, resulting in an extremely high corrosion resistance. A second major advantage is that there is no risk of hydrogen embrittlement occurring. Before the coating itself is applied the products are degreased one by one by means of centrifugation. Next, they undergo alkaline degreasing and are thoroughly rinsed and dried. The chemical pre-treatment and blasting lays the groundwork for a good adhesive bond. The actual coating process begins after these steps have been taken. Depending on the customer’s requirements, 2 or 3 layers will be applied. The Geomet process is chromium free and therefore also meets the demands of the most recent EU directives.
