Powder Coating Facility:
Our powder coating facilities feature two cure ovens, two pretreatment bays, and one spray booth. All of our equipment are batch type setups which allow us to coat a variety of parts with a wide range of versatility. Powder coating size capacities are 14 feet wide by 12 feet tall by 30 feet long.
What is Powder Coating?
Powder coating efficiently and effectively coats products with a harder, more durable finish than traditional liquid coatings.
Paint (in dry powder form) is applied to the substrate using an electrostatic charge.
Once applied, the powder is cured at high temperatures (approximately 400° F), which causes the powder particles to liquefy and bond.
Powder coating works best on electrically conductive materials such as steel, aluminum, and cast-iron.
The key to a long lasting, durable coating is surface preparation. Our in-house blasting and pretreatment facilities ensure high quality surface preparation. Every part that comes into the Kaser powder coating facility is pretreated using a three-stage pressure washing process.
First, a degreasing chemical is used to remove grease and oils from the part.
Next, the part is rinsed with fresh water. Finally, an iron phosphate treatment is applied. The phosphate etches the part, allowing for better powder adhesion, and creating an extra barrier against corrosion.
5 stage pretreatment processes are available upon request. Please note the stated pretreatment process is for carbon steel substrates. Kaser has other pretreatment processes for different metals.
