Oils, lubricants & rust preventative liquids or films
Mill scale, metallic fines, weld soot or light rust
Iron phosphate provides some protection but zinc phosphate is superior in both corrosion and prevention.
Typically, the 3-stages subsequent operations include: surfactant alkaline heated spray, heated spray rinse & a rinse with rust inhibitor as a sealant.
Typically, the 5-stages subsequent operations include: surfactant alkaline heated spray, heated spray Rinse, phosphate spray, primary rinse & secondary rinse with rust inhibitor as a sealant.
The four types include: Epoxies, Acrylics, Polyesters, Fluoropolymers.
There are thousands of colors to choose from. Your color can often be matched closely although special orders delay fast our fast turn-around.
No. high temperature masking tape is used to protect machined features from being coated. High temperature silicon plugs can also be used to protect holes.
The typical curing temperature range is 350to 400 degrees F.
The three types include: Architectural, Industrial and Special Purpose.
As the name implies, this type of painting most often uses a pressurized spray gun whereby atomization occurs at the gun tip through the mixing of the pressurized air with the coating. The spray volume and "number of passes" is dependent upon the painting thickness requirement.
This type painting requires that the paint be given a positive electrical charge and the gun be supplied a negative electrical charge. As the atomized liquid exits the gun, the paint is attracted to the part that is being painted. This type of application, at least for metal parts is used widely for high quality finishes.
Yes, most all coating manufacturers produce water-based industrial coatings. However, for parts exposed to harsh use or severe exposure, low VOC oil-based paints can also be an environmentally friendly consideration.
High-solids coatings are classified as having 60 percent or more of solids content by volume. These paints are often specified for top performance and where curing conditions are less than optimal.
The answer to this question is multi-faceted, but can often be determined through a series of questions.
