5 Stage Powder Coating Pre-Treatment System

Our Process Starts Where Others Finish

Stage One consists of a heated alkaline based degreaser / cleaner to remove mixed metals, oils and contaminates prior to powder coating. Stage Two is an aerated R/O (Reverse Osmosis) cold water raise to remove the degreaser / cleaner solution. Stage Three is an aerated acid based solution to etch and further clean the substrate of any contaminates and welding smoke. Stage Four is an aerated R/O (Reverse Osmosis) fresh water rinse to remove the degreaser and cleaning solution. Stage Five is an E-CLPS seal coat. E-CLPS is a chrome-free, non-phosphate liquid coating used to protect aluminum and zinc alloys with a clear, nearly colorless chemical Dried In Place (DIP) coating. When applied the coating has excellent paint bonding properties and affords under-film protection.

Note- R/O (Reverse Osmosis ) is water that has been filtered to reduce TDS ( Total Dissolved Solids) from the water , providing a cleaner substrate for improved powder adhesion.

Super Durable TGIC Powders Meet or Exceed AAMA Specifications

Super Durable polyester powders have become the mainstay in the architectural / railing industry. Where standard polyester powders will provide only 2 years of gloss retention, Super Durable TGIC powder will retain greater than 50% of its original gloss for a minimum of 5 years in exposures comparable to South Florida. Our Super Durable Powders meet or exceed the 7.9 weathering parameters of the American Architectural Manufacturing Association (AAMA) 2604-2605 specifications, and Innovative meets AAMA 2605 commercial specifications using leading powder manufacturer’s like , Tiger Drylac & Akzo Nobel  both who are recognized for the superior powders.
