CCA has been at the forefront of product development for a number of years (since 1989). The development of the ‘Metaltreat’ range came about through a need on a project that Terry had worked on as a consultant to Leighton / TKK j/v, on the third stage of the Burrup peninsula for Woodside and Shell. Flash rusting was a challenge when sandblasting a surface, and by the time coatings were ready to apply rust had already began to form.

Terry trialled various products to hold back the rust to allow coating to take place. From that idea 20 years later the ‘Metaltreat’ system was born. ‘Metaltreat’ is solvent free and non-hazardous, which makes our products very attractive for use in environmentally sensitive areas such as Barrow Island, and offshore oil rigs. ‘Metaltreat’ will not ‘flash off ‘ like traditional coatings. The product can be used in high temps, high humidity, and has low VOC’s and low fumes.

CCA’s range of corrosion resistant products can be used as stand-alone products, or combined as two or three coat systems when extreme conditions are the greatest challenge. Metaltreat and Metaltreat Xtreme tested to ASTM G 116 in C5I environment – Industrial areas with high humidity and aggressive atmospheres.


  • A thin film penetrant used to apply as a pre-treatment where rust is showing on bare steel surfaces, or where paint has broken down.
  • Penetrax will track and migrate under any loose coating by absorbing into rust via pin holes or holidays (misses when spraying).
  • Penetrax can be left to track over a number of days.
  • Once Penetrax has exposed rust, the loose paint is removed, and Metaltreat is applied to any dry surfaces and over entire equipment.
