FOX® (FLASH ANODIZING)

On 01.08.2014 The European Patent Office has certified with European patent the FOX® technology developed by SAT and, to now, operating in 4 different countries in the world.

The plant FOX® is integrated to the vertical coating system and allows to pre-treat the profiles with a flash oxide layer (between 3 and 8 microns) that protects excellently the metal and the coated layer from corrosion.

The profiles are loaded on the paint line and proceed to the following process:

  • Pre-treatment in a cascade tunnel
  • Flash Oxidation
  • Rinsing with demineralized water
  • Drying
  • Coating
  • Polymerization
  • Cooling
  • Unload

All these steps are performed on the same line. This means that the running costs of vertical lines with standard pretreatment and vertical lines with FOX are very close.
