Powder Coating Process

 

1.  Parts Preparation:  Parts are inspected and inventoried and any imperfections are removed.

2.  Cleaning:  Parts are moved to our pretreatment and cleaning area, where they are washed with a hot high pressure washer.

3.  Etched:  Once cleaned, the parts are further washed to provide an etched surface for the powder to adhere to.  Thus, providing a superior bond between the powder and the metal.

4.  Media blasting:  Media blasting is another way we prepare parts for powder coating. Using high air pressure and garnet media we can clean and etch the substrate prior to powder coating. Our blast booth is 15′ x 12′ x 35′ long.

5.  Powder Coating:  Once the parts are cleaned and etched they are transferred to the powder booth where powder is electrostatically applied to the parts.

6.  Powder Cure:  Now that the parts are dusted with powder they are baked in one of our ovens until they are cured.

7.  Packaging:  Once cooled, the finished product is then wrapped and packaged ready for shipment.

 

*Because we have the ability to change colors quickly, we are able to efficiently accommodate high production or prototype single piece runs with large or small parts. Oven sizes to 8′ x 8′ x 27′.

 

Why Plate or Powder Coat?

 

Advantages of Powder Coating:

There are several advantages of powder coating over conventional liquid coatings:

1. Powder coatings can produce much thicker and more durable coatings than conventional liquid coatings.

2. Powder coating applies without horizontal or vertical brush lines, running or dripping.

3. Powder coating kinder to the environment than conventional liquid coatings.

4. Powder coating color varieties and effects are easily accomplished during the painting process.

 

The Bottom Line of Plating and Powder Coating:

The technology of plating and powder coating can extend the life of your product as well as improve the functions and aesthetics coatings through color, chrome, nickel, satin nickel, or brass.
