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
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.
