Thin Film (ZrO) Pretreatment has been on OEM vehicles around the world for nearly 12 years. Some believe it is still an “experimental” conversion coating. The key questions are, is a thin film pretreatment a viable technology that provides sufficient protection for high-quality OEM vehicles in the most severe corrosive environments in North America? And, how does bare steel corrosion performance compare to other substrates with zirconium and zinc phosphate conversion coatings?
In this webinar, we will review several field surveys of cars and trucks that targets vehicles with this technology to evaluate how they are performing in the real world versus laboratory tests and their various predictions. Let’s look back at these results to drive the future of this technology.
