Electrostatic powder spray coating creates tough, corrosion-resistant finish

An electrostatic powder spray coating service that can refinish valves and related components to resist salt spray, chemicals, and abrasion is being offered by Applied Plastics Co., Inc. of Norwood, Massachusetts.

Applied Plastics’ Electrostatic Powder Spray Coating Service features a gun that sprays positively charged powders onto a negatively charged part which is then cured in an oven at up to 800°F, for varying durations, depending upon the item and type of coating. Ideal for valves, backflow preventers, and similar parts, curing transforms the coating into a uniform finish that resists abrasion, chemical attack, corrosion, and mechanical damage.

Coatings offered for Applied Plastics’ Electrostatic Powder Spray Coating Service include nylon, polyester, Teflon®, various polymers, and epoxy coatings that meet AWWA (American Water Works Association) Standards C213 and C550, FDA, and USDA requirements. Suitable for new or refurbished parts, the firm can strip and abrasive-blast clean a part’s surface.

Applied Plastics’ Electrostatic Powder Spray Coating Service is priced according to type of coating, part preparation requirements, and quantity. Literature and price quotations are available upon request.

Superior medical devices require superior coatings.

Our proprietary PTFE Natural® coated mandrels offer unmatched benefits.


Low Coefficient of Friction

PTFE Natural® coatings provide a coefficient of friction generally in the range of 0.05 to 0.20, depending on the load and sliding speed.



PTFE Natural® coatings can operate continuously at temperatures up to 550°F and can be used for intermittent service up to 600°F with adequate ventilation.



Non-Stick Very few solid substances will permanently adhere to a PTFE Natural® coating. While tacky materials may show some adhesion, almost all substances release easily.



Chemical environments usually do not affect a PTFE Natural® coating. Only molten alkali metals and highly reactive fluorinating agents are known to affect this coating.



The proprietary PTFE Natural™ coating process enhances the substrate bonding surface to provide optimum lubricity without flaking or cracking.



Since PTFE Natural® finishes are both hydrophobic and oleophobic, cleanup is easier and more thorough.
