Chemical Stripping & Heat Stripping
Currently, two forms of coatings removal are offered at our facility. Chemical stripping allows us to offer the removal of previous coatings without subjecting delicate items to high temperature. Heat stripping provides an efficient, time saving method of removing previous coatings on steel products, which allows us to offer a quicker turnaround for items requiring stripping.
Iron Phosphate Conversion Coating
Our 5-stage dip and spray washing system, including a degreaser/detergent and an Iron Phosphate conversion coating, provides an ideal surface for powder application to cold-rolled steel and aluminum. Currently, our dip system can accommodate items 11' x 4.5' x 5.5' (3.35m x 1.37m x 1.67m), and our manual spray wash can accommodate items of almost any size.
This process provides our customers with additional corrosion protection for their product, and guarantees a uniform, unblemished, and attractive coating surface.
Our two media blasting facilities offers our customers several degrees of mechanical surface preparation, and is large enough (40' x 10' x12') to accommodate oversized and awkward items. Paired with our large, modern facility is our full knowledge, and strict adherence to NACE, SSPC, and ISO standards for mechanical surface preparation. The pairing of our facility and standards offers our customers the most complete surface preparation available, therefore providing maximum protection against corrosion, and extending the life of their products significantly.
Large Production Line
The larger of our two lines, it includes a 40' x 10' x 12' (12.2m x 3.0m x 3.6m) oven, and a 40' powder booth with 2 Nordson SurecoatŪ powder guns. Connected by overhead tracking and powered 40' transfer, this line has a maximum weight capacity of 10,000 lbs (4536 kg). This line was specifically designed to powder coat very large, heavy material efficiently. With a 40' maximum part length, it is well suited to powder coating light standards, pipe, and heavy industrial machinery.
Small Production Line
Our smaller line includes a 18' x 8' x 8' (5.5m x 2.4m x 2.4m) oven, and a 18' powder booth with two Nordson SurecoatŪ powder guns. This line also includes a fluidized bed for the application of fusion-bonded epoxies. Connected by overhead tracking, with a manual 9' transfer, this line has a maximum weight capacity of 1000 lbs (454 kg). This line was specifically designed for large volume, small part batch orders, as well as short-run and custom work. It's multiple tracking system allows maximum efficiency when racking small parts.
The inclusion of a fluidized bed to this line offers our customers the option of finishing their items with a fusion-bonded epoxy, such as 3M Scotchkote or Dupont Nap-Guard.
