For the purpose of painting our premium aluminum extrusion, we employ a cutting-edge vertical electrostatic Polycron line that can accommodate pieces as long as twenty-one feet. Each of the industries we work with has specific needs, and we make it a priority to perfect our methods until we can meet those needs with uniform color application and superior adhesion. As a first step, we offer a pre-treat finish, which is actually a four-step pre-wash process. The four steps are the initial etch, the clean wash, the neutralizing wash, and finally the pre-wash. This method ensures superior adhesion to aluminum substrates for more reliable, long-lasting outcomes.

Following a thorough pre-wash, we apply about 2ml of wet Polycron paint. In order to guarantee high-quality results and uniform color application, our staff meticulously inspects the passing parts of our vertical electrostatic line at regular intervals. After the paint has been applied to the parts per the client’s specifications, the aluminum extrusion for industry is baked to cure the paint in one of our high-temperature, custom ovens. After curing, each item is removed from the production line individually and given a thorough inspection by our staff of skilled technicians before being sent on their way. When the parts finally make it to the shipping department, they undergo yet another round of quality checks before being packaged up for shipment.

We also offer optional secondary finishing services, such as powder coating and anodizing, to our customers in addition to painting. To give our customers the look they want and to shorten our production times, we collaborate with a number of powder coating supply companies. For products that include this supplementary service, production time will fluctuate based on the complexity of the finishing process and the nature of the materials required. After any necessary sawing, deburring, or other fabrication services are completed, the next step is anodizing, which involves dyeing the pieces in either short or long runs.

Our premium aluminum extrusions are available in any color and finish your business could imagine. We can anodize in a variety of colors, including clear, black, and a rainbow of them all. Those in need of a special finish, coating, or texture can request custom anodizing services.
