SCS sheet steel simplifies paint pretreatment. SCS can reduce, even eliminate, your need for certain cleaning, rinsing and conversion coating steps – key to cutting costs and cycle time. In salt spray tests, powder coated SCS samples pre-treated with only water rinse achieved 300 hr. exposure with no creep.
Painting & Paint Prep of SCS Steel
That's a huge help to fabricators who spend hours wiping down hot band so it's ready to paint, or who outsource painting HRPO parts because they don't have a multi-stage paint prep system. With SCS steel, they get a superior paint finish plus outstanding corrosion protection.
"With SCS, our paint prep time is down dramatically, and the surface is so smooth that we get a superb finish every time."
For some applications, a two- step rinse may provide all the pretreatment needed to paint SCS sheet steel. Click below for guidelines on the two-step rinse:
A manufacturer of electronics cabinets converted from P&O to SCS. The biggest reason was much leaner paint prep – cutting iron phosphate by two-thirds, yet wash solution lasts 5 times longer than with P&O. SCS gives a better paint finish as well.
A maker of hazardous waste containers: " With P&O, we used a degreaser and rinse to remove oil, grime and grinding dust. The added handling created a bottleneck. With SCS, we do a simple five minute wipedown, then take them right to the paint booth."
A maker of outdoor seating and playground equipment states "Since the switch to SCS, we go twice as long before we change out our pretreatment wash solution, yet we can say with confidence we're getting better adhesion and better durability."
