Body In White panel
Very thin organic coating
20-50nm
PLT is applied as a thin organic layer of 20 to 50 nanometres between the zinc-coated steel and the pre-lube.
Lower punch force
10%
With PLT we measure much lower punch force: up to 10% in critical deep drawing situations.
Promotes bonding
100%
PLT acts as a booster bond on zinc-magnesium coatings, realising a satisfactory 100% cohesive failure mode in the majority of cases.
