Depending on the industry that you serve, there may be certain requirements or standards for custom aluminum coating solutions. At Silver City Aluminum, we go above and beyond to ensure that we provide our customers with quality aluminum extrusion, fabrication, and finishing services that meet or exceed their expectations. In addition to extrusion, sawing, deburring, and other essential service options, we also offer Polycron paint applications, powder-coating, and anodizing at our Southeastern Massachusetts facility. We do it all in-house to ensure quality control and provide our clients with the best possible lead time available. Our goal is to strive for perfection in all of our coating services to ensure that the custom aluminum extrusion for industry that we deliver meets all necessary criteria.
Professional Painting Services
When it comes to painting our quality aluminum extrusion, we utilize a state-of-the-art vertical electrostatic Polycron line that is capable of handling pieces up to twenty-one feet in length. We continually improve our processes to achieve consistent color application and top-rated adhesion to meet the requirements of every industry that we serve. We begin by providing a pre-treat finish, which is actually a four-stage pre-wash system. The four stages include an etch, a clean wash, a neutralizing wash, and then a standard pre-wash. We use this system to guarantee excellent adhesion to the aluminum materials for longer-lasting, more consistent results.
Once the pre-wash is complete, we apply the Polycron paint at approximately 2ml’s wet in thickness. The passing parts on our vertical electrostatic line are constantly monitored and checked by our staff to ensure top-quality results and consistent color application. Once the paint has been applied to the parts, according to the client’s requirements, the aluminum extrusion for industry is cured through a baking process in one of our special, custom ovens. After curing, each piece is taken off the line one at a time by hand and is inspected by our team of trained technicians before they are taken to the shipping department. Once the parts arrive at the shipping department, they are inspected again to ensure quality results before they are packed for delivery.
Powder-Coating and Anodizing
In addition to painting, we also offer our clients the option to apply secondary finishing services that include powder-coating and anodizing. We work with several different powder coating supply companies to offer our clients a finish that provides the aesthetic look that they desire and to increase lead time. The lead time for products that include this extra service will depend on the part that is being finished and on the process and materials being used. Anodizing involves the dyeing of short or long pieces and can be applied in either large or small runs once the sawing and deburring or other fabrication services are complete.
Our customers can choose from an unlimited array of colors and types of powder-coating and anodizing for their quality aluminum extrusion orders. We offer clear and black anodizing, as well as multi-color anodizing options. Custom anodizing requests can also be made to get a specific look, texture, or protective layer, depending on their needs.
