Our Powder Coating Process
1 - Media Blasting
After your part is disassembled, we will do a thorough cleaning of the part. We will need to remove all dirt, oil, grease, and grime from the part in order to have a clean application of the powder coating.
This process is done upon request
2 - Pre-Treatment
4-Stage Wash System
- Lacquer Thinner Hand Wash
- High Pressure (1,000 P.S.I.), High Temp Iron Phosphate Wash
- De-ionized Water Rinse
- Coral Surecoat 1900 Eclipse Sealer
3 - Pre-Bake
At this point, your part should be as clean as you can get it and down to bare metal. Pre-baking heats up the oils inside of the part and drives them out.
We will put the part in the oven at 440F for 40-120 minutes.
(pending substrate thickness)
4 - Preparations
Masking is a tedious but required part of powder coating. Masking is also dependent on the part and it is the very last step before the part is powder coated.
