Our Services

We offer several services in the area of the anticorrosive treatment of metals highlighting lacquering, pickling and metallization.

LACQUERING

The lacquering takes place through the electrostatic deposition of powdered paint and subsequent polymerization at temperatures close to 200ºC, according to the technical data sheet of the product

This process makes the surface highly resistant to the most adverse weather conditions, guaranteeing the final customer a product of high quality and durability.

In the first stage, is done a pre-treatment:

Iron: Pickled, metallized and lacquered when the environment to which they are intended, so obliges. Defatted and phosphated for less aggressive environments, which is made by chemical process.

Aluminum: Chemical process, made by immersion for the purpose of cleaning and preparing the aluminum for the paint, to protect it from corrosion and to maximize the adhesion of the paint.

Advantages of Lacquering:

The lacquering, besides protecting from natural corrosion, allows to obtain a huge variety of colors.

In order to meet the most demanding needs of its customers, MB LACAGENS offers an extensive range of colors ranging from classic finishes, gloss or matte, as well as special textured and metalized lacquers, among many others.

PICKLING

The pickling is an iron cleaning system, which consists of the projection of an abrasive on the surface to be cleaned.

For this system, as abrasive we use the steel. This is effective in cleaning the iron and creating the required roughness to a good adhesion of coating to apply.

For your projection we use the compressed air jet in own cabin, because we understand that the durability of an iron treatment scheme depends a lot on its cleaning.

METALIZATION

The metallization is an anti-rust treatment system of the iron, where is apply a hot-foil zinc by projection that is applied to the surface treated, previously clean in the pickling, in order to prevent corrosion.

For metallizing, we use 99.99% pure zinc and use an electric gun for its projection.

Usually, we apply a coating with a thickness of 40 microns, except when the customer requests a higher thickness, taking into account that the thickness have to do with the environment where the material will be placed. For example: waterfront, very humid, areas of snow, etc. In these special cases, it is advisable to make a painting.
