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 rinse 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.
