Oil Compatibility for OEM Assembly Plants

Details:

Automotive Technical Service Group 3rd Party Testing of Oil Compatibility Evaluation Matrix for OEM Assembly Plants

Objective:

To evaluate the cleanability, phosphatability, and subsequent ecoatability of lubricants when processed through an actual OEM Automotive Manufacturing Assembly Plant vehicle  pretreatment system with PPG products.

 Testing Summary:

An actual OEM Automotive Manufacturing Assembly Plant vehicle  pretreatment system will be used with offline laboratory adultered cleaner baths representing typical OEM Automotive  Manufacturing Assembly Plant chemistry, process, and conditions exactly (using the industry standard PPG Rinse Conditioner and PPG Chemfos 700 ) for the main cleaning chemistry used in OEMS with PPG products.

ACT cold rolled steel (CRS) and ACT hot dipped galvanneal steel (HIA) substrates will be used throughout the evaluation.  The lubricant will be applied to 16 ACT CRS and 16 ACT HIA panels using a #8 draw down bar.

A set of 9 CRS and 9 HIA panels will be stored horizontally and aged for seven days at room temperature. A second set of 9 CRS and 9 HIA panels will be stored horizontally and oven aged for seven days at 120 degrees Fahrenheit.

All panels/variations will be processed at 0%, 0.5%, and 1.0% oil loading with the lubricant in a PPG Chemkleen 2010LP/181ALP bath.     Control panels of CRS and HIA (no oil applied) and freshly applied lubricant will be processed through cleaner.

Panels will then evaluated by analyzing the zinc phosphate coating weights, Optical  high resolution micrographs, water break free surface area, and P-ratios of each panel variation.

A PPG Chemfil Lab report will be issued stating the suitability of the lubricant  for use on automotive parts to be processed though an OEM automotive pretreatment & ecoat line.

ACT Test Panels

Details:
Description:
PPG & PPG Chemfil buy quite a few ACT test panels for our work and pass the savings on to our customers who just want to buy a package or two of common panels at a fair price.
From ACT Site:
Every Panel starts with superior quality Cold Rolled Steel substrate. This substrate has a consistent matte finish which is produced through an industry standard process.
The panel production process includes cleaning the Cold Rolled Steel according to ASTM D609C.  The panels are cut to size, a 5/16” hole is punched at the top.
After inspection, panels are packed/wrapped in quantities of 25 with VCI paper (vapor phase inhibitor), shrink wrapped.
We carry eight panels codes in stock (we buy in quantity). We only sell by the package. Below are a few of the common panels we stock (please see the drop down list under “Panel Code” for a complete list)
APR10159 – CRS 4 x 6
APR10288 – CRS Clean Panels
APR10161 – CRS Unpolished
APR29295 – E60 EZG (Galvanized) 60G 2 side Cut Only Unpolished 4X12X30
