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 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 fresh water rinse to remove the degreaser and cleaning solution.
Stage Five is a seal coat that has been added to our process, E-CLPS. 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.
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 Wishbone meets AAMA 2605 commercial specifications using Spraylat "Newlar"' powders.
Environmentally Friendly Powder Coating
Wishbone Site Furnishings supports earth-friendly "green" building practices. Our powder coating is environmentally friendly and contains no VOCs. Chemicals used in our processes can be neutralized and desposed of safely, and powder coating reduces the impact on human health compared to other coatings.
