20-foot vertical electrostatic paint finishing system applies
organic finishes. All metal is prepared for painting by undergoing
a five-stage wash and pre-treatment process in which a non-chrome
conversion coating is applied. This assures excellent properties
and also affords good under-film corrosion resistance. Next, a
high-solids polyester coating (70-80 percent solids) is applied
using two six-inch diameter Ransburg discs rotating at speeds
up to 30,000 RPM. Finally, the finish is cured in a conventional
bake-oven. Good coverage is achieved in even the smallest extrusion
cavities and the resulting surface finish is without equal.
