NANOTECHNOLOGY LAMA: NEW SURFACE TREATMENT FOR STEEL FILTERS
After changing the surface treatment process used to treat our filters, we have implemented a new NANOTECHNOLOGY process in one of our baths. This process improves even better this stage of treatment
This new stage involves propagating molecules through the steel surface, which has a very thin thickness when compared with other market applications. One of the main functions is the passivation of metallic surfaces, which protects them against corrosion. This achieves the uniform and clean adherence of the powdered paint finish particles, which are applied immediately after this process.
Our products are treated in some immersion stages, getting that all the surface of the product is treated, before passing through the NANOTECHNOLOGY step. Those processes are the bases for good results, since the welding or dirt particles and oil or grease are eliminated.
Thanks to the use of NANOTECHNOLOGY we can reduce the cost of energy used, such as in the surface treatment process, as well as the water consumption costs derived from this phase.
With NANOTECHNOLOGY, we archive a great adhesion of the powder paint coat, so corrosion cannot appear. We can guarantee that no scales will be formed, i.e., there will be no formation of sludge. This is a nickel and phosphate-free phase.
LAMA SISTEMAS DE FILTRADO is committed to this change in the process for one of its baths, as a result of its low toxicity in relation to metallic ions, the protection against corrosion and the high adherence of paint. In addition, the consumption during the NANOTECHNOLOGY stage is very low in each one of our products.
To sum up, NANOTECHNOLOGY offers higher levels of safety and protection in a more eco-friendly step due to being respectful behaviour towards the natural environment, as well as cost-effective process. Likewise, it is less toxic, with a lower consumption when treating water, no sediments or precipitates are formed and the maintenance requirements are lower.
