Dr. Jens Krömer, Technical Director Automotive Henkel AG & Co. KGaA, did a presentation at last years' Automotive Corrosion Protection event, on the topic "New substrates influencing the multi metal pre-treatment process".
Corrosion is a long-term problem for car manufacturers. Crucial parts such as brake and suspension components can be susceptible to corrosion, and as these are critical to safety on the road, manufacturers and suppliers continue to develop sophisticated corrosion prevention technologies.

Chemetall and PSA did a presentation at last years' Automotive Corrosion event, on the topic of new technologies and corrosion behaviour. This presentation goes into details on:
- Why new pre-treatments?
- Zr thin film history in PSA
- Oxsilan technology
- Corrosion behaviour and results obtained a
- 6 years industrial experience
In a world where economies of scale often demand that a particular component, such as a lower control arm, be produced in one facility and then shipped half way around the world to be assembled into a vehicle or sub assembly, corrosion is often the cancer that costs companies dearly.
In the run-up to Automotive IQ's conference on Automotive Corrosion Protection, Aperam's Saghi Saedlou and Dr. Karl-Heinz Stellnberger from voestalpine gave us the opportunity to talk to them about the challenges of the topic and what they will be doing at the conference.
