Powder coating is one of the most exciting multi-colored finishing methods to be introduced in the past 100 years. This system out-performs conventional liquid finishes by achieving optimum file thickness with a single pass. It also eliminates drips, sags, and runs while improving edge coverage, providing greater impact resistance, and upgrading hardness and abrasion resistance. These characteristics result in energy, labor, production, waste disposal savings, and ultimately leads to a more competitively-priced finish than conventional liquid.

Vinyl coating offers another multi-colored finishing option. It is a tough finish with excellent abrasion, corrosion and electrical resistance. Because vinyl plastisols are liquid when at room temperature, the coating can be poured, pumped, sprayed or cast on the material. The result? A finish that also has excellent chemical resistance to saltwater, solvents, and oxidizers. Our recent addition of fluidized bed capabilities for powdered vinyls offers more flexibility for your vinyl coating requirements .

Electropolishing is an electronically-controlled chemical process that removes surface material leaving a clean, bright finish. The process removes iron contamination and helps create a surface more impervious to potential corrosion.  This finish is widely used for stainless steel items in the food and appliance industry.
