Pretreatment
This is the first stage in the painting process. When it comes from the body shop, the body shell is first cleaned, degreased and in most cases phosphated in preparation for the next coating. The phosphating produces a corrosioninhibiting conversion layer (nonmetallic crystalline structure) to which subsequent paint layers will bond more effectively.
