We’re specialists in the metal pre-treatment process, providing customers with access to revolutionary products.


Due to its green credentials, Plaforization helps businesses achieve ISO 14001/50001 certification

No Flash Rust

Plaforization allows metal to be pre-treated and stored for up to six months before flash rust takes place

Covid-19 Contingency plans

To all our valued customers, we hope you are well and navigating these unprecedented times as best you can. Here at Metavate we want to reassure you that we have a full stock of chemical in the UK to ensure no interruption to your supply. To those of you who order in bulk direct from Italy we have factored that into our contingency planning and these orders will be available to ship direct from our UK warehouse.
We would ask however that you give us as much notice as possible for shipments. Our warehouse has a skeleton workforce at present and we anticipate lead times on orders to be 7 to 10 days.
Our friends in the laboratory in Milan continue to work and are providing analysis reports for you so please do ship samples off as normal.
Finally, we hope you understand that at present we have suspended any service visits, as soon as Boris says so we will gladly come and see you all!
If you need anything at all please do not hesitate to get in touch, the team are all working remotely and will happily have a chat!

We hope to see you all soon. Stay safe

The Team at Metavate.

Surface World Live

We will help you with...

Manufacturers are facing pressure to hit numerous targets – from increasing throughput to reducing their carbon footprints. But reaching these goals doesn’t have to be complicated. Our metal cleaning and treatment technology will help your manufacturing to become more sustainable, efficient, and cost-effective. If that doesn’t make good business sense, we don’t know what does!

Cost Saving

Our processes require fewer tanks, manpower, water and energy, providing customers with lower running costs.

Energy Saving

Metavate’s ambient treatments mean you'll see no sludge and requires no water or heat.

Space Saving

Because we use fewer steps, you need fewer tanks, giving you more room for production.


It sounded too good to be true but long term trials have proved the process works.

It’s the only process we’ve found that allows us to store cast steel and iron products without the worry of going rusty before assembly / painted.

We’ve seen lots of benefits - resolved storage issues, reduced utility costs, reduced water usage, carbon footprint AND our production time.
