Powder and Liquid Coating
This is a process where a positively charged particle is evenly sprayed onto a negatively charged or grounded item which is going to be coated. The electrical charge holds the powder in place during transport to the oven and through the complete bake cycle. At Applied Plastics, we can coat individual pieces, short runs, and full production runs.
Ovens that accommodate all types of products
We have ovens that can accommodate all types of products and we use them to prepare items for coating as well as curing them afterwards. Preparation for coating includes techniques such as surface degreasing and outgassing to remove oil, grease, and other impurities prior to sand blasting, and we even coat certain metals with a phosphate solution to obtain superior powder adhesion, depending upon their application. Curing temperatures can range from 200ºF to 800ºF for varying durations, depending upon the item and the coating being applied.
