Flash corrosion is a severe problem that plagues many water-borne-type pretreatment lines. Flash corrosion, or flash rust, occurs quickly when thin water films reside on metal surfaces, which triggers the corrosive action. A secondary process is then required to remove this oxidation, which increases processing time and cost, while reducing production. To combat flash rust, Freiborne has developed the Freibond T200 to provide a single chemical paint pretreatment solution. This prevents flash rust, saves the manufacturer time and money, and increases productivity.
