In the steel making process, the passivation step treats the surface to protect it from the environmental factors that cause corrosion. Depending on the chosen chemistry and regulatory considerations, this process can be approached in several different ways. The PRIMECOAT™ portfolio offers a product range consisting of hexavalent chromium (Cr6+), trivalent chrome (Cr3+) and chrome-free technology options to meet process needs.

Overall, the key benefits of the PRIMECOAT™ line of products include a transparent appearance, excellent corrosion protection even at higher coating weights as well as the added advantages of lubrication and compatibility with subsequent paint films.

The Quaker PRIMECOAT™ passivation product line complements the comprehensive range of process fluids, coatings, and chemical management services Quaker offers the steel mill to support maximized performance and lower total cost of ownership.
