Obviously, before the parts are sprayed, we need to pre-treat (clean) or sandblast them. If it’s a part that will fit through our 5-stage wash system, once they are racked, they start out with a heated liquid degreaser. They are then rinsed and run thru our iron phosphate application. Then on to 2 more rinses. The part runs thru a pre-heat to remove any remaining standing water on the way to the powder booth. Spray, cure, cool, inspect and they are ready to go.
Powder coat advantages:
1. Ultra hard finish – up to 10 times harder than wet paint
2. Hundreds of colors, textures and glosses available.
3. No paint “runs” like wet paint
4. Environmentally clean to apply – no paint fumes into the atmosphere or applicator’s lungs
