Kairos technology in the radiator factory

Kairos Surf® is a unique technology that allows faster and cheaper surface preparation (washing/degreasing) for painting, which works for both large and small companies. See how we reduced painting costs on a line of bathroom radiators.

Customers about usReferences

There is no better indicator to describe technology than customer satisfaction. Over the years, we have helped many of them achieve success by streamlining the surface preparation process for painting. See what others have achieved by opting out of metal phosphating.
I have been using the chemistry for the preparation of aluminium and black steel for many months, the quality of the products is still as good. Express shipping, zero problems, technical support for free, at my fingertips, a matter of making a phone call. More companies like this.


I would like to share and recommend Kairos Chemistry. A very effective means of preparing surfaces before painting . It really works at a low temperature compared to other agents of this type. And with proper maintenance the chemistry lasts a long time.

Low temperature

Conventional iron phosphating of steel or zinc phosphating requires bath temperatures of around 45-65 °C. Kairo-SURF® products are designed to operate at temperatures in the order of 25-27 °C.

Perfectly prepared surface

Our measures work well on short surface preparation lines with, for example, 3 stages. We do not need 5 - 7 zones. There are also lines where we wash effectively in two zones - washing and rinsing.

Corrosion protection

Phosphating users are satisfied when 500-600 hours can be achieved with a 5 zone line with additional passivation. Our products can achieve more than 750 hours in a salt chamber according to ASTM B-117 washing in 3 zones without any additional products.
