INDUSTRIAL pre-treatment washer

Global Finishing Solutions® (GFS) Industrial Pre-Treatment Washers are used for cleaning and preparing substrates prior to powder and liquid coating, electro coating and autophoretic coating. Industrial Washers have also been used before or after machining or forming of component parts. Parts requiring high corrosion protection, such as exterior automobile parts, aluminum wheels, appliances and office furniture, often require multiple washer stages, as determined by your specific process. GFS has designed and built complete pre-treatment washer systems.
