What is Powdercoating?

Powdercoating is a relatively new metal coating technique and was first introduced to North America in the early 1970's. In this process, powdered Epoxy - Polyurethane resins along with coloured pigmnents are applied to metal products using an electro-static charge. The product is then "baked" in ahigh temperature oven causing the powder to melt, flow, and then cure, forming a molecular fusion bond. The result is a surface - to- coating bonding unlike any other.

The 5 STEP Powdercoating Tour

STEP 1...Product Arrives at ABC Plant

Uploading occurs within our drive-in bay. Products are individually placed onto custom metal tooling that is attached to an overhead conveyor system . From here they move more forward into our Cleaning Station.
NOTE: All Tooling is designed and manufactured in-house

STEP 2... Clean As A Whistle

Still attached to the conveyor, your product passess through an extensive chemical cleaning system of 7 or 5 stages, depending on the substrate. Both include a final deionized rinse. This pre-treatment ensures a clean phospated and etched substrate for coating. This is one of the most critical steps in high quality powdercoating. After leaving the final deionized rinse the product travels through a separate dry off oven. This allows us to control the temperature to ensure properly dried parts and to prevent the overheating of difficult parts such as zinc and aluminum die castings.

STEP 3...Powder Meets Metal

After cooling down, your pre-treated product passes through one of our applicator booths. Here the powder is evenly applied to the surface, either by one of our highly trined technicians or with our automatic repricators. Excess powder is contained by the booth and continuously recycled.

STEP 4...Getting Baked

Your product is transported through our infra red preheat section and then forward into our high temperature oven, causing the powder to melt, flow and cure leaving an incredibly durable and attractive finish second to none.
STEP 5...Cool Down Inspection and Return to Sender
The items are now allowed to cool to complete the process. Once cooled, each item is individually inspected and carefully re-packed in our customer's containers and sent back to our satisfied clients.

While it may take as little as 2 hours for an item to pass through the entire sytem, normal PER JOB turnaround is approximately 7 days. Regular scheduling is available and preferred in order to significantly reduce turnaround. Pick up and delivery are also available.
