Omad: the leaders in cataphoresis. Cataphoresis is an advanced technique which gives ironwork a never before achieved resistance to corrosion. Omad’s experience derives from being the first company in the sector to introdice cataphoresis in the work cycle.

Cataphoresis uses the same technology used in the automobile and household appliance sectors, and is characterized by the uniform deposit of an epoxy resin. A material which, adhering to the treated products like a real chemical bond, ensures long and extraordinary protection against all atmospheric agents and any other kind of attack. It also allows better adhesion of polyester powder paints, which are particularly stable with regard to UV rays.


Electroplating is a painting treatment that allows you to give metal products a high resistance to atmospheric agents, especially with regards to exposure in environments rendered aggressive by damp, heat and salts; the electroplating system of cathode type allows chemical resistance values to be achieved that are 50% higher than with the traditional anode system; also the mechanical properties of the protective film are considerably improved.


Electroplating with the cathode type system, which is the painting treatment with cataphoresis, is a process which really allows the achievement of particularly homogeneous covering thicknesses, even in zones of difficult access and application, such as creases in the item, grooves, complex concave surface, threading and knurling.


In the painting process the cataphoretic product is water soluble (the paint is dissolved in water rather than in chemical solvents); the process is thus characterized by a very low environmental impact; used solvent, in fact, is a harmful and toxic waste product, while in cataphoresis there is no waste because the excess paint is cisculated again and reused, instead of being necessarily sent to the purification phase, with obvious advantages of avoiding the dispersion of polluting substances.
