Environmental legislations are constantly evolving; among the latest European regulations governing REACH and the use of Biocides, the European authorities have implemented a new classification, which aims at reducing the use of Borax.

Introducing a new borax-free alternative for the safest pre-coating, CONDAT will promote at INTERWIRE and WIRE Russia exhibitions our latest generation of wire surface treatments with a special focus on VICAFIL TS 7101.

VICAFIL TS 7101 is a environmentally friendly salt coating, containing no boron salts. It performs an even coating, dries quickly and prevents from corrosion as per Borax. VICAFIL TS 7101 can be used after acid cleaning or after mechanical descaling processes, in batch or in line. It provides high drawing performances and can substitute phosphate conversion coatings.

VICAFIL TS 7101 is a versatile coating which can be used on both carbon steel and stainless steel wires.

Main applications: tyre-cord (metal reinforcements for pneumatic tyres), saw wire, bead wire, Prestressed Concrete wire, mattress spring wire, etc.

Its formulation without Borax ensures:

  • No exposure for the operators
  • Zero boron in effluents
  • Safer working environment
