Our Surface Finishing products assist with cleaning and removing a wide variety of soils; applying conversion coatings to promote paint adhesion and corrosion resistance; and stripping paint, carbon, and rust from substrates being remanufactured. Learn more: surface finishing brochure

Joe is the Surface Finishing Specialist for Quaker Houghton’s Surface Finishing division. He specializes in paint pre-treatment and specialty cleaning chemistry and processes. Joe holds a BS in Chemistry from Illinois State University.

A common problem facing manufacturers using metal and surfacing finishing conversion coating processes is the need to consider the expense and effluent discharge liabilities of the process water. A proven approach combining innovative chemistry with related equipment to allow users to eliminate all process water discharge from their spray washers. This process has enabled users to eliminate waste water permitting, notice of effluent violations, and all related costs associated with excessive water usage.  The process integrates high quality performance, simplicity of operation, and minimal operational cost.  Two case studies including both powder paint and e-coat applications will be discussed.
