Coating & Curing
Our powder coating process integrates best-in-class technology and equipment. We use Nordson SureCoat powder guns for full coverage in areas difficult to coat using conventional electrostatic systems. Six experienced paint gun operators and QA personnel work and supervise the process to ensure all areas are fully coated while inspectors examine parts with dry film pre-core tests before curing.

Our cure ovens are calibrated periodically throughout the year using sophisticated data-pack temperature recorders. These recorders provide important information on ambient and actual metal temperatures so we can ensure that our powder coatings are optimally cured. The part curing schedule varies depending on the substrate being processed and ranges from 350°F to 525°F. Performance results from quarterly salt spray tests are another measure used to monitor coating and curing quality and performance.
