BlueKote 2000 is a replacement for phosphate in the treatment of steel components. Over the last few years, there has been a movement to eliminate phosphate processes from surface finishing companies. In some countries you are not allowed to discharge phosphates into the waste system. Phosphates promote plant growth in rivers as well as creates large amounts of sludge which have to be treated and then sent for disposal.
BlueKote 2000 is a phosphate free conversion coating for steel. This system is reliable, easy to handle and environmentally friendly. It was developed to be a pre-treatment of steel prior to powder coat, wet paint and electrophoretic paint. The BlueKote 2000 can be used in existing systems without plant changes and it is very economical to run.
