The Process for High Volume:

  1. Parts to be coated are cleaned and pretreated using a three-stage power spray system.  The system uses alkaline cleaner & zirconium phosphate suitable for various metals.  The system is monitored daily for proper chemical concentrations
  2. The parts are sprayed by 6 automatic guns and 2 manual touch-up gun
  3. An inspector in the spray room ensures the parts are properly coated before being cured.  Depending on profile, parts 11' L x 5' H x 2' W can be coated.
  4. The coated  parts are cured in a 20' x 54' gas-fired oven
  5. After traveling approximately 75' for cool down, the parts are inspected and packed for protection in transit.
  6. This process is capable of producing over 2500 parts/hour, depending on size & complexity of the part.

The Process For Low Volume or “Batch” Runs

  1. Parts are cleaned and pretreated using a three stage power spray system.  If parts are rusted or, are being refurbished, we will bead blast to remove the rust or old coatings,  using our blast cabinet or our blast room.  The blast room can process a part 22ft long X 6ft wide X 6 ft high.
  2. Parts are powder coated manually and inspected by the coater.
  3. The coated  parts will be cured in one of our 4 ovens, depending on the size of the parts being processed.
  4. After baking, the parts are inspected and packed for transit
