Why GEOCOTE™

Rohtak’s only GEOCOTE™ Coating Applicator

L’BESTE GAT is developing eco-friendly organic and inorganic hybrid coatings that do not include the four major heavy metals and volatile organic solvents. The high performance organic anti-corrosive agent that we are currently developing uses water as a solvent to promote ECO-Green products and adopts an ideal organic-inorganic hybrid new material binder that maintains its advantage as an inorganic binder and at the same time, its work-ability as an organic binder.  Due to its outstanding heat-resistance, acid resistance and eco-friendly properties, we are aiming to apply the organic-inorganic hybrid anti-corrosive agent to various industries including the automobile industry.

GEOCOTE™ is the name for our metal coating material that excels in anti-corrosion and is comprised of organic-inorganic hybrid coatings for lower temperature curing systems than traditional metal coating systems as water-based and chrome-free material.

Four-Way Corrosion Protection

  • Barrier Protection:Overlapping zinc and aluminium flakes provide an excellent barrier
  • Galvanic Action: Zinc corrodes to protect steel
  • Passivation: Metal oxides slow down the corrosion reaction of zinc and steel
  • Self-Repairing:Carbonates migrate to damaged areas to actively repair and restore the coating

 

GEOCOTE™ Advantages

  • Thin:GEOCOTE™   X-250: 4 – 7 microns; GEOCOTE™   S-570: 8-10 microns
  • Hydrogen Embrittlement Free Process:Coating does not require acid pickling or electroplating
  • Bimetallic Corrosion Resistant:Aluminium flake eliminates the bimetallic cell of zinc coatings
  • Solvent Resistant:Inorganic nature causes it to be resistant to organic solvents
  • Heat Resistant:Maintains corrosion resistance even following an intermittent heat shock
  • Conductive:Concentration of metallic flakes allow an electrical current to be passed
  • Better Than Pure Zinc:3 times greater corrosion protection than pure zinc

 

Environmental Benefits

  • Chromium Free:NO HEXAVALENT or TRIVALENT in the liquid or on parts.
  • Complies With:Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), EU Directive on End of Life Vehicles (ELV) and EU Directive for Electrical Equipment (RoHS) regulations
  • No Toxic Metals:Free of nickel, cadmium, lead, barium and mercury
  • Water Based:Free from dangerous solvents
  • VOC Compliant:Under EPA RACT requirements

 

Versatile Application

SOLEOS applies GEOCOTE™ application process (dip-drain-spin, spray) following an alkaline and/or mechanical cleaning cycle. Coating thickness can be varied by altering elements in the application processes. Due to its chemistry, GEOCOTE™ has a wide cure window of 250°- 300°C PMT (part metal temperature), for 25-40 minutes.
