Powder Coated Aluminium Extrusions
The powder coating process starts with the metal components being cleaned, which helps the coating to adhere to the metal. This process is carried out in a multistage immersion water tank system as follows;
• A de-greaser and light etch is used to clean the metal after which a two bath rinse cleans it down.
• Next a non chromate bonder is applied to help the powder adhere to the aluminium.
• Finally a drying oven is used to ensure no moisture is present when the items are powder coated.
The components are then suspended from a jig and passed through a spray booth where the powder is applied by spray guns. Once the powder has been applied it is passed through a curing oven where the particles melt and fuse together and adhere to the components surface. This produces a uniform, smooth, durable finish.
