There bright dip anodize is a true bright dip anodize, not an electro polish/anodize substitute.
L&S Manufacturing we do our own in house powder coating.
Powder coating is exactly that. Powder pigment is electro-statically charged as it is ejected from the spray gun using low pressure air. The powder particles then deposit on the oppositely charged part, evenly coating it. Once coated the part is placed into an oven at 400° F for 10 minutes which melts the powder allowing it to flow like paint and then cures the coating. When removed from the oven the part is allowed to cool and ready to ship.
Powder coating requires the part surface to be clean and when possible clean, bare metal to ensure a good electrical path. Part preparation requires removal of rust, paint, and other contaminants through stripping or media blasting. Final preparation is a wash stage to remove blasting dust and oils/solvents.
Powder coating has several advantages over paint:
Powder coating does not require liquid solvents for pigment suspension - safer and more environmentally friendly.
Powder coating provides much thicker coatings than painting - incredible durability, scratch resistance, and metal protection.
Powder coating produces little hazardous waste, unlike painting.
Metallics, pearls, primers and clear coats available, just as for paint.
