COATTECH CO., COLUMBIA CHEMICAL'S EXCLUSIVE

PARTNER IN THAILAND, IS FEATURED EXHIBITOR

AT SURFACE & COATINGS EXHIBITION, A DIVISION

OF THE AUTOMOTIVE MANUFACTURING EXPO 2013

 

April 10, 2013, BRUNSWICK, OH - Coattech Co., Columbia Chemical’s exclusive partner in Thailand, will be exhibiting at SURFACE & COATINGS 2013, a division of the AUTOMOTIVE MANUFACTURING EXPO 2013 in Bangkok, Thailand on June 20-23. Joining the Coattech team will be Martin Gall, Columbia Chemical’s Managing Director of Far East Business.  Coattech was recently featured in the SURFACE & COATINGS 2013 publication:

 

“Coattech” to Green Auto-Parts with Eco-Friendly Products

The Managing Director of Coattech Co., Ltd. believes that 2013 will be another busy year for Thailand’s auto-parts industry due to the synergy of the government’s first car buyer scheme and the upcoming AEC. The following is his perspectives and how his company will contribute to the industry.

Mr. Torpan Phisitkul, Managing Director of Coattech, the only official dealer in Thailand of the coatings and plating products brand Columbia Chemical, USA, said “I believe the AEC will be an important factor to drive Thailand as a regional hub of auto-parts manufacturing. However, the environmental regulation in the industry will soon be stricter.

“For example, in the plating production process, heavy metal substances, such as Cobalt, tend to be banned internationally. So, Coattech Co., Ltd. is one of the very first companies in Thailand that is concerned about this issue and, thus, provides the industry with environmental friendly products.

“At Surface & Coatings 2013, I would like to invite parts-makers to discover our eco and high- quality products, Columbia Chemical brand, including ‘SpectraMATE 151 CFT’ and ‘COLZINC ACF-II process’. This brand is recognized as a world leader in this field, so, this guarantees the best quality products with the highest standard to be delivered to the customers.”

Mid State Plating was established in 1967 by brothers Bob, Bud, Ed and Dale Stokes.  The plating division branched off as an affiliate of the original company in 1994, but continued to work closely under separate family ownership under Bud and David Stokes.  Located in Flint, Michigan, the company provides quality metal finishing services to the automotive and other industries and includes rack and barrel zinc electroplate, zinc phosphate coating, vibratory deburring, and cleaning.  Their modern 30,000 sq. ft. facility includes computer controlled and monitored plating lines and complete laboratory facilities for process control, inspection and testing.  The company has been certified for their QS9000 system and is currently TS16949 registered.  Mid State Plating has achieved General Motors approval for GMW 3044 X with Columbia Chemical’s SpectraMATE 25 and Zinc-Chro-PELLENT.

 

Vice President Tim Stokes oversaw the audit process to successful completion with the support of Columbia Chemical Technical Sales Representative, Chad Murphy.  The approval process required collaborative efforts among key associates, including Doug Drury, Plant Superintendent; Dwayne Gillespie, Production Foreman; and Dana Linker, Lab Technician.  

 

The C.A.R. approval is an added gold star to the company’s reputation of dedication to exemplary quality and customer service.  “While we are big enough to get the job done, we are small enough to give our customers the personal service they deserve,” comments President and Owner, David Stokes.  He adds, “Customer service is at the top of the list for everyone on our team”.

PROVE COST-EFFECTIVE IN FIELD TRIALS

 
COLPHOS ZN 35
 
MARQUEE BMP

December 14, 2011, Brunswick, OH - Columbia Chemical announces a line of phosphate coating products that is breaking bath life and salt spray testing records.

   

COLPHOS ZN 35 liquid-immersion zinc phosphate produces fine-grain crystalline heavyweight coatings on steel surfaces, while generating minimal sludge. The process provides excellent absorbing properties for supplemental coatings such as oil or waxes.  Not only is COLPHOS ZN 35 suitable for coating weights of 1000 – 5000 mg/ft2, it is also ideal for pre-paint treatment and in forming operations.  COLPHOS ZN 35 enables platers to meet the requirements of ASTM F1137, MIL-DTL-16232G TYPE Z and A-A59267.

COLPHOS OIL 20, a water emulsify-able, alkaline rust preventative for ferrous surfaces, results in over 200 hours of salt spray protection when applied and cured over a heavy zinc phosphate, such as COLPHOS ZN 35.

MARQUEE BMP mid-phosphorus electroless nickel plating process has one of the fastest deposition rates throughout the life of the bath.  The extremely deep, brilliant, decorative finish also boasts uniform plating thickness and hardness. Excellent stability results in a solution life up to 10+ turnovers.  A simple two-component process with a 1:1 replenishment rate, MARQUEE BMP meets ASTM-B-733 and AMS-2404 C specifications.

Two of the Columbia Chemical phosphate coating products were recently field tested at American Metal Coatings in Cleveland, Ohio, which processes over 600 million parts annually. COLPHOS ZN 35 Phosphate for Heavy Coatings obtained three times the life of a competitive process.  Salt spray testing on our COLPHOS OIL 20 provided a higher level of salt spray protection at a lower cost.

COLUMBIA CHEMICAL INTRODUCES

TWO NEW EASY-TO-USE

TRIVALENT CONVERSION COATINGS

WITH UNIQUE FINISHES

 

 
SpectraMATE® 21
COLDIP® SATIN ZINC 900

 

September 01, 2011 Brunswick, OH – Columbia Chemical introduces two new trivalent conversion coatings for electroplated zinc, SpectraMATE® 21 and COLDIP® SATIN ZINC 900.

SpectraMATE 21 is a high-performance thick-film trivalent conversion coating that consistently exceeds 150+ hours of neutral salt spray to white corrosion products without top coats.  It produces an iridescent  multicolor finish which renders more blues, reds and yellows with less hues of green, which is unique among high-corrosion resistant trivalent chromate processes.  SpectraMATE 21 offers an operating pH range that is wider and more user-friendly than conventional trivalent chromates.  It is ideal for both rack and barrel installations utilizing cyanide, alkaline cyanide-free or acid-chloride zinc plating electrolytes.

COLDIP SATIN ZINC 900 provides an economical alternative with its unique uniform satin zinc finish, similar in appearance to satin nickel and satin silver.  It consistently provides 96 to 168 hours of neutral salt spray to white corrosion products without topcoats.

Both SpectraMATE 21 and COLDIP SATIN ZINC 900 are easy-to-use “one part systems” that do not require multiple starter, adjuster, and replenisher type additives.

For more information, contact Columbia Chemical Corporation, 1000 Western Drive, Brunswick, OH 44212, 330/225-3200, www.columbiachemical.com.  Columbia Chemical is one of the world’s largest manufacturers of zinc and zinc-alloy plating additives.
