Pretreatment (Surface Conditioning Technology)

MacDermid's surface conditioning technology is used primarily in the preparation of metals prior to surface finishing. Our pretreatments have been under continuous development and improvement since 1922. It's a science we take very seriously and one in which we have a long history of innovation.


At the heart of MacDermid's pretreatment chemistries are a series of branded products that have led the field since their introduction in 1920's. Metex branded pretreatment products continue to deliver exceptional performance and economy. Generations of metal finishers have learned to trust and depend on them.
