Powdertech Surface Science are experts in the application of chrome-free pre-treatments and coatings for lightweight alloys in the automotive, aerospace and other specialised industries.
We have been involved in the field of automotive light weighting for over 10 years, primarily around the preparation of materials for joining. We have recently developed and patented a new mixed material joining system for composite to metal called PowderBond. This unique process allows thermoplastics to be joined to metal without the need for adhesives and provides very high bond strengths when compared to other state of the art joining techniques.
Our experience in the automotive sector, processing thousands of parts per week, coupled with our technical knowledge of surface treatments and joining systems, makes us a unique partner in the development of the automotive supply chain for composites.
