GEOMET®

High performance, corrosion resistant coatings for metal finishing that offer efficiency and respect of the environment.

  • Water-based
  • Chromium-free
  • Thin Film

Dixie Industrial Finishing now offers the GEOMET® family of proprietary water-based products containing metal oxides, metallic zinc and aluminum flakes. The zinc and aluminum flakes align in multiple layers forming a metallic silver film. Applied as a liquid, the coating is totally inorganic after thermal curing.

Silicate sealers, black and colored topcoats, are applied over GEOMET® basecoats to extend corrosion protection. The result is a high performance, chromium-free, cost effective finish.

These coatings are the standard for industries requiring high performance thin layer anticorrosion systems that are completely chrome-free.  They are capable of protecting a wide variety of metallic surfaces and are well suited for both large and small parts having either simple or complex geometry.

In particular, GEOMET® coatings are a worldwide standard for use on fasteners and are commonly specified in the automotive, heavy truck, marine, agricultural, construction equipment, wind energy and aerospace industries.

ENVIRONMENTAL BENEFITS

  • Chromium Free - NO HEXAVALENT or TRIVALENT in the liquid or on parts.
  • Complies With - Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), EU Directive on End of Life Vehicles (ELV) and EU Directive for Electrical Equipment (RoHS) regulations
  • No Toxic Metal - Free of nickel, cadmium, lead, barium and mercury
  • Water Base - Free from dangerous solvents
  • VOC Compliant - Under EPA RACT requirements

COATING APPLICATION METHODDip-Spin - Small parts are coated using the dip-spin application method. Parts are loaded into a perforated metal basket and immersed into the GEOMET® coating. The basket lifts and excess coating is spun-off the parts. Following coating, the parts are conveyed into a convection oven for curing.
