Choose a Finishing Option for Even More Corrosion Resistance

Finishing Options for Aluminum ExtrusionWhat better to complete you custom aluminum extrusion from Silver City Aluminum than to choose custom aluminum coating solutions to provide even more corrosion resistance? Choose from a wide range of options for powder-coating, painting, anodizing aluminum and other finishing selections in a variety of color and texture choices. Our goal is to provide each and every client with the fully finished custom product that they desire. In addition to top quality aluminum extrusions, we also provide in-house finishing services that exceed anything that our competitors can offer.

Painting Solutions
One of our most popular options is custom painting services, which can be in just about any color of the rainbow. We are able to perfectly provide consistent color applications to all of our client orders and use only top-rated adhesion techniques to help meet the strict requirements of every industry that we serve. We can paint pieces up to 20 feet in length and we apply a four-stage pre-wash system to each product, regardless of length. Our pre-treat finish helps to ensure adhesion and provide the best-possible protection and corrosion resistance for the finished product. It consists of an etch, a clean wash, a neutralizing wash, and an industry standard pre-wash. This all works to guarantee adhesion and provide long-lasting, great-looking results.

A polycron application comes after the pre-wash system to help the paint to adhere even better to the finished aluminum materials. After the washing and the chemical treatment has been completed, the parts are then dried and prepped for painting. Each painting service has its own level of standards and service that they provide. At Silver City Aluminum, we apply the paint at approximately 2 ml’s wet in thickness. We constantly monitor the parts as they pass through the paint process to ensure consistent color and top quality results. The parts are then cured through a baking process in our custom ovens. After curing, each part is taken off the line one at a time by hand so it can be inspected by our technicians before it is taken to our shipping department.

Powder-Coating Solutions
Another popular custom aluminum coating solutions available at Silver City Aluminum, is our powder-coating service. We work with several different powder-coaters and anodizers to provide our clients with finished products that have the aesthetic appeal and texture that they require. Because we do it all in-house at our facility in Taunton, we are able to increase the lead time and get the finished parts and products to our clients at a much faster rate than our competitors.

Choose from a wide range of bold colors and textures to get the look you need for your finished product. Work closely with our technicians to ensure that the product has the right color, texture and amount of corrosion resistance and protection that you desire. Powder-coating is a very popular solution for many different industries and is a great alternative to painting, anodizing aluminum or even galvanized aluminum extrusion. The actual amount of lead time for the order will depend on the part that is being finished and the different types of powder-coating solutions and services that are being used.

Anodizing Aluminum Solutions
The process used for anodizing involves the dyeing of pieces. Our facility is able to do small and big runs for either short or long parts. These custom aluminum coating solutions are applied after the extrusion, fabrication and secondary operations are complete. Our clients can choose from a variety of options for anodizing aluminum, including single color, clear coat, black anodizing or multi-color, depending on their needs. We can even work up a custom anodizing finish upon request.
