Standard and custom aluminum extrusions are rarely “good to go” straight from manufacturing. They frequently go through a variety of finishing processes that make improvements designed to increase function, strength, protection, and longevity. Some post extrusion operations are standard, such as the ones that we provide at Silver City Aluminum. For example, we de-burr all of our machined parts as a standard part of the process to ensure quality results. These treatments are typically provided after any punching or fabrication is completed to remove any aluminum burrs that were created during the application. Quality control is very important to our entire team, and we go above and beyond to ensure that we deliver products that meet or exceed expectations.
Aluminum Surface Treatments
Another way that we ensure quality control at Silver City Aluminum is to offer an extensive array of options for aluminum surface treatments on all of our finished parts, components, and products. While some industries and applications do not require any additional services to be performed, many others appreciate the option to change the color, texture, and level of protection with their standard and custom aluminum extrusion at our Massachusetts facility. We do everything in-house, including custom aluminum coating solutions. We have a wide range of options, including unlimited colors, for powder-coating and painting aluminum products, depending on your needs.
- Painting Services – Like everything else that we do at Silver City Aluminum, great attention is paid to the quality of our services when painting aluminum products. Our paint line runs nearly non-stop, and we strive for perfection to achieve consistent color application, top-rated adhesion and meet the industry requirements of every customer we serve. Our pre-treat finish includes a four-stage pre-wash system with an etch, clean wash, neutralizing wash, and industry-standard pre-wash for excellent adhesion and long-lasting results. We apply our paint at approximately 2 ml’s wet in thickness, and all passing parts are monitored and checked by our staff, cured, and removed by hand to be inspected by our technicians for quality control.
- Powder-Coating and Anodizing – Our other custom aluminum coating solutions include powder-coating and anodizing for a finish that provides the aesthetic look, texture, and finish that our customers desire. We work with several different powder coaters and anodizers, applying these services to short or long pieces in either small or big runs once the extrusion and fabrication process is complete. Choose from clear, black, custom, or multi-color anodizing, depending on your needs. Our staff can help you to make the best choice for your project, based on the intended use of the finished product and the industry requirements that you need to maintain.
Why Custom Aluminum Coating Solutions?
You might think that just any type of paint or anodizing will help you to achieve your goals of enhancing the protective qualities of your aluminum parts, components, and products. While this is true to some extent, our customers come to us because they demand quality.
