Oxford Advanced Surfaces unique Onto adhesion promoter replaces the need for other surface preparation, removing sanding, vapour blasting, or plasma. Simply degrease before to applying Onto.

Onto products are effective in the surface preparation of composites, engineering plastics, and other advanced materials. They improve the bonding of adhesives, paints, and lacquers to the substrate.

All Onto adhesion promoters are simple to use whatever your manufacturing process, requiring no specialist coating equipment. Onto makes surface preparation quicker, easier, safer and more environmentally friendly. Onto improves productivity, reduces costs, with no risk of substrate damage.

Whatever your composite adhesion challenge, we’ve got it covered.

Product news

  • COMPOSITE SURFACE PREPARATION REDUCED BY 90%

    Oxford Advanced Surfaces (OAS) and Polkima A.S. have signed a supply agreement for OAS’s Onto™ product. The use of Onto™ in Polkima’s production process has reduced surface preparation time by 90%, leading to significant cost savings as well as faster processing and improved quality.

    Polkima is an industry leader in Turkey in the manufacture of composite components for commercial vehicles and off-highway vehicle OEMs, and a leading innovator in production methods and processes. Polkima has implemented the use of Onto™ in surface preparation for the painting of composite components initially for commercial vehicles, removing the requirement for sanding prior to painting. Sanding or abrasion as a surface preparation is slow, dirty, and labour intensive process that risks damaging parts .

    Terence Warmbier, Oxford Advanced Surfaces Head of Business Development, said: “This Supply Agreement demonstrates a significant step forward in the continued commercialisation of our Onto™ surface treatment technology into volume manufacturing and transportation. We welcome the opportunity to partner with Polkima and we look forward to developing the relationship further.”

    Anthony Gallia, Polkima Chairman, said: “Onto™ will enable us to reduce the labour time required to prepare parts for painting by 90%, with a huge cost saving. This allows a significant productivity improvement in our ability to paint composite parts.”

    The unique patented technology of Onto™ has already been proven in demanding applications in automotive, transportation, motorsport, defense and sporting goods, and is specifically designed to exploit the maximum potential of modern materials. It provides a practical approach to surface preparation that reduces processing time, reduces cost, improves adhesion, and is easily repeatable. Onto™ removes all the current issues with surface preparation with a simple process that works for composites and a wide range of engineering plastics.
