Join the Wisconsin chapter for their monthly meeting with a presentation on Pretreatment. Dave Chalk of DuBois Chemicals will be presenting. 

Innovations in the 21st century specialty chemical business have been driven by regulatory compliance, energy and material costs, and market trends and desires. Beginning in 2014 all participants in this market will be influenced by the new "Global Harmonized System”, or GHS. Product contents, documentation, and regulation must all comply with a new global initiative designed to minimize confusion and increase awareness of material safety and handling. New globally compliant technologies for cleaning and pretreatment processes will be presented in the context of the GHS system, with focus on the most innovative approaches.

In this new world, an ideal cleaning and pretreatment process would run at ambient temperature, contain absolutely no heavy metals, would condition steel of variable quality for treatment, would yield biodegradable reaction byproducts, be applicable to all industrially useful metallic substrates, and provide results superior to the now mainstream transition metal approaches. Efforts to achieve these expectations will be described.
