ProCoat's STEELMAN OVEN SIZE: 6' high X 6' wide X 16' long
The oven temperate is set. The first phase of the coatings process is Mediablasting/Sandblasing and/or Chemical stripping your project to remove all coatings/rust/flash rust if needed.
Then your project is submerged into our PERFORMANCE PRETREATMENT TANKS (one specifically designed for aluminum, and one designated for steel) Our PERFORMANCE PRETREATMENT SYSTEM tanks contain detergents to thoroughly clean all surface oil and contaminants, including hand prints containing oils and acids!! Steel parts are combined with phosphoric acid to create a conversion coating known as iron-phosphate. If the part is a soft alloy, aluminum, brass, copper, etc., fluoride will etch the part to expose new metal and some phosphate conversion coating will occur. This conversion coating provides two important benefits; maximum adhesion for all types of coatings, and a major reduction in undercutting in the event the coating is ever cut down to bare metal.
Your project is then hung on our rack and rolled into our oven to dry. Once your project has cooled down from the "drying" phase, all threaded areas are plugged, masking is applied as required and/or requested, and the project is rolled into our spray booth for the coatings application.
The last phase of the coating process is rolling the part back into the oven for the powder coating to cure (approximately 25 minutes at 425°).
Once your project has finished the curing cycle, it is rolled out of our oven and cooled down. Your project MUST meet all stages of our quality control inspection. Then, and only then, your project is ready to be returned to you, our satisfied Customer, the MOST important phase of our process.
