Cleaning, degreasing, corrosion protection and paint adhesion in 1 simple process step
To replace solvents, to improve corrosion protection and paint adhesion
Can be applied on steel, galvanized steel, aluminum, magnesium and stainless steel, amongst others
MM31 is an innovative chemical pre-treatment from AD Chemicals. The product combines the worlds of mechanical and chemical pre-treatment. In the field of pre-treatment methods, mechanical pre-treatment (such as blasting or sanding) followed by a coating system is common practice. What would be the result if a mechanical pre-treatment could be combined with the added value of a chemical pre-treatment?

By applying MM31 directly after a mechanical pre-treatment, the two worlds come together. This results in a clean, ready to coat surface and a quality improvement of the coated substrate on both corrosion protection and paint adhesion properties. This is the result of forming of a conversion layer. The product also offers protection against flash rust and undercreep corrosion, allowing an extended storage time of up to 48 hours.
Conversion layer, chromium-3 basis
MM31 creates a chromium-3 based protective conversion layer, which is formed on the metal by a chemical reaction with MM31, whereby the metal itself contributes to the formation of the layer. This layer provides a more uniform metal surface.
Benefits of MM31
- The conversion layer applied with MM31 improves adhesion of powdercoating or wet paint and increases the corrosion protection properties.
- Flash rust resistance on steel products, white rust protection on zinc, improved bare metal corrosion resistance on aluminum
- Allows an extended storage time prior to coating up to 48 hours
- Full chemical pre-treatment applied in one process step. MM31 replaces therefore a pre-treatment line with a simple process without the need for heated baths and the use of heavy chemicals.
- Results are similar or better than the requirements of international quality standards such as FROSIO, NACE, GSB, Qualicoat and Qualisteelcoat
- Replace solvents in the business process with a user-friendly and non-aggressive chemical. Protect employees against exposure to harmful substances
- Waterbased, Chrome (VI) Free, Free of Hazard Symbols
- 1 product for both cleaning/degreasing and applying a chemical pre-treatment
- Multi-metal: MM31 can be applied on steel, galvanized steel, aluminum, magnesium and stainless steel, amongst others.
