Powder Coating Process
The powder coating process is fairly simplistic:
The Preparation Stage: includes blasting or solvent cleaning to insure the piece is clean and ready for the Pretreatment Stage.
The Pretreatment Stage: is important in making the surface “powder ready”. Using a phosphate-based solution, the surfaces of the desired piece is sprayed to protect and improve the powder adherence.
After phosphating, the piece is put into the oven at 250 degrees F, to dry and is ready to be powder coated.
Powder Coat: using an electrostatic gun, the powder is applied to the surface.
The final stage is the Curing stage. This is when the powdered piece goes into the oven to cure. The powder is baked onto the surface at a temperature of 385 degrees F, roughly 15 to 25 minutes.
Sandblasters work by using finely ground silica sand that is propelled by means of an air powered pressure gun that fires out the sand at high velocity to impact with the intended surface. We can supply Sand Blasting if the piece is not prepared for the powder coating process.At Metal Works Powder Coating, we do mostly everything in house at one location.
