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.
