Liquid Coating Application
Rack spray, dip spin, and mini-coater processes are primarily for applying wet, liquid paints, whether solvent or water based. Allegheny Coatings' licensed zinc-aluminum flake coatings, high-temperature resistant coatings, and dry film lubricants are typically applied using these processes depending on the parameters required by the specification.
First-class aesthetics; best for larger or heavier parts
Bulk processing for
fasteners and hardware
Small-batch processing for
complex geometric shapes
Removal of grease or oil prior to application of the finish
Preconditioning to remove other coatings or surface imperfections prior to coating application
Inorganic & organic sealing for the powder metal industry
Alkaline cleaning, media blasting, and part sealing are all preconditioning processes used to prepare the surface of the part prior to coating application. Alkaline cleaning is best for chemically degreasing or removing oils, while media blasting is best for physically removing prior coatings or surface imperfections. Part sealing is to fill porous powder metal parts prior to applying a surface coating.
