In advance of coating any surface with a paint or an adhesive, you need to ensure that the coating will stick to the material and form an exceptionally strong bond with it. This can be difficult to establish. Very often, the glue or paint looks as if it has adhered very well to the underlying material. An in service failure may prove otherwise. Broadly speaking, surface treatment of any material may involve abrading, solvent degreasing, priming or sometimes another process such as corona treatment. In the selection of which process or combination of processes which should be used, a wide and deep knowledge of both chemistry, materials and manufacturing technology is required.

Our chemists are at your service. We have the background manufacturing knowledge and scientific expertise to examine any material, and through structural adhesion tests, and advise of the best way to ensure optimum adhesion. Let our surface science work for you.
