Inspection & Drying
Following the powder coating pre-treatment process, we carefully inspect all parts to ensure they have been thoroughly cleaned, removing any retained water. After inspection, parts enter our independent dry-off oven for programmed drying. Pre-determined drying temperatures from 225°F to 300°F are based on part density, configuration and line speed to protect phosphate coating integrity.

PRE-POWDER COATING INSPECTION Prior to powder coating, we perform an inspection review of all parts, materials and products. Anything that might interfere with finish quality is fully attended to before the product enters the powder coating booth. Any threaded or previously determined areas are pre-masked to ensure they remain free of powder to assure overall surface quality and wear performance and preserve final finish integrity.
