Ropella Industry Expertise

Conversion coatings are much more complicated than simply applying a layer of paint to a metal surface. Regardless of the form it takes – anodizing, bluing, chromate, phosporate, black oxide – this pretreatment actually mechanically bonds cured paint to the metal. In addition to adding color, conversion coatings increase surface hardness and, most importantly, provide significant corrosion protection.An in-depth knowledge of physical, chemical and electrical properties is requisite to maximizing the potential of conversion coatings. This industry also requires an ability to lead testing processes, implement safety programs, shave costs, and work with a range of disparate departments, from product development to marketing.
