Pre-paint Conversion Coatings for Remanufacturing

Just As Important As Your Top Coat

“Remanufacturing is an industrial process
that restores end-of life goods to their original working

US International Trade Commission, October 2012.

It’s hard to tell the difference between a brand new original equipment component and a freshly painted remanufactured one right?  Just wait a couple of weeks or months and if the remanufactured one is pitting, peeling or shows signs of rust and corrosion, the problem lies underneath the paint!

All remanufacturers know how important core preparation is, but once the parts are disassembled, stripped and cleaned, the pre-paint is as important as the top coat. With 60 years of surface coating and pretreatment experience, Hubbard-Hall has developed a complete line of phosphate and environmentally conscience non-phosphate pretreatment conversion coatings.

Providing a finished component that will last without premature rusting is what our superior corrosion protection is all about.  Our most popular remanufacturing conversion coatings are detailed below with all of the proof you will need in our testing and testimonials.
