We have one of the largest cure ovens in Southern California (parts up to 30
ft. in length) along with a large re-heat dry off oven, a two line manual
rail system, a manual high pressure-wash and pre-treat phosphate application booth. We have the ability to turn a high volume of large parts quickly and efficiently. We have four ovens on site along with two powder application booth's, a 15 ft. x 8 ft. x 8ft. sandblast booth and a small blasting cabinet. We can strip and coat a wide variety of objects and materials.
WE ARE THE POWDERCOAT PROFESSIONALS!
Powder coating is a dry finishing process, using finely ground particles of pigment and resin which are electrostatically charged and sprayed onto a part to be coated. The parts to be coated are electrostatically grounded so that the charged powder particles projected at them adhere to the parts and are held there until
it melts and is fused into a smooth coating in the curing oven. The result is a uniform, durable, high quality finish that is also environmentally friendly.
"It looks like paint but it acts like
armor" states the Powder Coating Institute (PCI) of this ubiquitous surfacing technique. Powder coating is a highly durable, decorative and long lasting finish applied to products of nearly every sort for the consumer and industry alike. It can come in virtually any color or finish, matte or smooth, is rust-free, scratch resistant and ecologically friendly. The powder coating process uses a solvent free mix of plastic resins,
and fillers that melt and fuse together when heated. The solid particles of
coating are electrostatically charged in a spray gun and carried by low velocity
air to the surface of the piece to be coated. The electrostatic charge holds the
powder particles in place while the part is cured in a 400 degree oven. The heat
of the oven causes a chemical reaction to occur and the powder to cure, creating
a highly durable finish.
Any metal object that can hold an electrostatic charge and withstand the heat of
the curing process can be powder coated. Powder can be applied to intricate
surfaces and still maintain a uniform finish across the entire piece. Resistant
to chipping, and fading, colors of a powder coated item will remain true for
many years. High gloss and low gloss finishes, even metallic and clear finishes
The performance characteristics of powder coating match or exceed the
characteristics achieved from conventional solvent based coatings. Powder
coating provides an extremely durable finish and has bonding capabilities
superior to traditional wet paint. In addition it has excellent chemical
Powder Coating is an environmentally friendly process unlike solvent based wet
paint systems. With EPA regulations growing ever stricter, powder coating is
fast becoming the technology of choice. Since the powder coating process does
not use solvents in any way, VOC emission problems are eliminated.
Since its introduction in North America almost 40 years ago, powder coating has
become the fastest growing finishing technology, currently representing over 10
percent of the total industrial finishing market. More and more finishing
engineers for a countless array of products have switched from liquid finishing
to powder coating as a way to produce a high quality and durable finish while
maximizing production, cutting costs, improving efficiency, and complying with
increasingly stringent environmental regulation.
