Zinc Flakes and Top-Coat

Zinc flakes technology was born from the demand of the automotive industry for high protection against corrosion, absence of hydrogen embrittlement, well-defined and homogeneous thicknesses and precise coefficients of friction. This technology can be applied with Dip & Spin, Drain or Spray processes after a right surface preparation.

  • Extremely thin film, high corrosion resistance
    The LAFRE system was developed as a surface treatment with unique features to satisfy the wide variety of customers’ requests. Thanks to an extremely thin coating with high corrosion protection, the LAFRE process allows anti-corrosive performance in outdoor locations by combining three different types of metal flakes in the right proportion, creating a compact and very durable film. Suitable for screws, bolts, nuts, small metal parts and much more thanks to its versatility in processes Dip & Spin, Drain Dip & Spray.
  • Extremely thin films (5 µm)
    It can get a very thin film of only 5 µm with only two applications and two curing of the coating. The film is straight and smooth, made ​​of 3 different types of metal flakes that create a thin laminar coating.
  • Low curing temperature
    A deposit feature is to have excellent performance with low curing temperature, just 250° C, therefore applicable to products that require a certain control of the treatment temperature, like the springs.
  • Free from hydrogen embrittlement
    The surface preparation does not require pickling processes or electrolytic processes that may cause hydrogen embrittlement, causing the breakage of steel with high tensile strength.
  • High corrosion resistance

Surface treatment technology with high-grade anti-corrosion available in several colors

 RUSPERT® metal finish is a high-grade anti-corrosion surface treatment technology. It consists of three layers: the first layer; a metallic zinc layer, the second layer; a high-grade anti-corrosion chemical conversion film, and the third top layer; baked ceramic top coating. The distinguishing feature of RUSPERT® is the tight joining of the baked ceramic top coating and the chemical conversion film thanks to the cross-linking effect. These layers are bonded together with the metallic zinc layer through chemical reactions, and this unique method of combining layers results in a rigid and dense combination of the coating films. RUSPERT® treatment does not attribute its anti-corrosion properties merely to a single material, but the synergy of these three layers, which combined have superb rustproof qualities.

  • Superior corrosion resistance
    Excellent resistance against gas, weathering and other kinds of corrosive factors like salt water
  • Corrosion resistance against scratches                                                 Minimal surface scratches due to composite layers
  • Bimetallic corrosion resistance    
    Less sensibility to galvanic corrosion 
  • Low processing temperature
    The baking temperature below 200°C protects the products from metallographic changes 
  • A variety of colors
    Various colors available to suit different purposes
