Q. Joe, I have a question concerning the relationship between pretreatment chemicals (currently using a zirconium-based pretreatment in a six-stage system with an alkaline cleaner in stage one) and powder coat thickness. Can the condition of the bath play a role in how thick the dry film thickness is on a part?

Q: Hey Joe,
I am looking at a report that a major company just sent in. The steel parts are showing signs of rust after 24 hours and visible signs of rust after 48 hours in a 5% salt fog solution.

Somewhat new to this world of powder coating – how is this possible? Some holes and slots that have been punched out I can somewhat understand. But when I see aluminum wheels and outdoor items holding up season after season I would have thought the powder coating would hold up longer?

Is there a method of correlation between hours in a salt chamber and what this means to user conditions?
Thanks,
John D
