Powder Coating Process on Your Spray Booth: in Photos

We can talk all day long about the benefits of getting your paint booth powder coated white. We actually have a great blog on all the benefits. What better way than to show you how we powder coat your booth, from beginning to shipping … in photos.

STEP ONE:

The paint booth panels are off of the production line and ready to be sent to the Powder Coating area. Once in the powder coating area, the panels are hung up and prepped for coating. This means cleaning the metal really well to get the best adherence of powder.

Powder coating offers brilliant white booths!

Powder coating is the fastest growing finishing technology in North America, representing over 10% of all industrial finishing applications. So what is a Powder Coated Finish?

Have you ever seen a really shiny and clean metal piece and wondered what type of paint it was? It was probably a powder coated finish, which is an advanced method of applying a protective finish to practically any type of metal. It’s a sprayed powder that is a mixture of finely ground particles of pigment and resin. Once sprayed, the item is ‘baked’ at a very high temperature to cure the smooth finish and leave it with a sleek and durable ‘skin’. Here’s an old filing cabinet that we powder coated yellow.

Powder Coated Finish: The Powder Coating process provides one of the most economical, longest lasting, and most color-durable finishes available for metal. Powder coated surfaces are more resistant to weather, chipping, scratching, fading, and wearing than other finishes. Powder coatings produce no drips, runs or sags. Edge coverage and coverage inside holes and nooks is exceptional. See the process from our Powder Coating production on this new blog. Continue reading Powder coating offers brilliant white booths!

CONVERT YOUR SPRAY BOOTH TO A POWDER COAT BOOTH

DSC_0066Here’s the dilemma. You have a paint spray booth but the cost of painting is too expensive. Higher cost per square foot of coverage, higher labor costs and higher waste management costs.

 

Do you want to switch to the more cost-effective and durable powder coating finish? Why wouldn’t you? It’s easier to apply, applies in one coat and has a wider range of finishes. Problem is, booths should not be used for both finishes and you can’t afford a whole new booth specifically designed for powder coating.

 

Although a new powder coat booth is the ideal, we understand sometimes you’ve got to use what you have. Here’s how you can easily convert your spray booth into a powder coat booth.

·         Change your filter panels from dry arrestors to two-stage filters.

·         Add an after-box to provide third-stage filtration and allow recirculation of exhausted air into the shop.

·         Change out your painting equipment (HVLP or similar spray guns) with powder specialized spray equipment that charges the powder during the feeding process to enhance coating.

Lucky for you, Standard Tools has worked with numerous booth owners who have made this change, and we have done this process in our own shop! We can offer all the items you need to convert your current booth into a powder-coating booth…. filter grids, filters, after-filter box and spray equipment.

 

Not sure if you should use powder coat?  It doesn’t work with every finish or every product being coated, but it may be a good answer for your coating process.  Call us to discuss your conversion needs.  Our Sales team will gladly provide pricing so that you can compare a new powder coat booth with converting the existing spray booth.
