Aluminum Coating Solutions: Painting

Paint is one of the most often utilized methods of finishing for aluminum extrusion. In order to create a uniform color application, we strive for perfection in every service we offer, which is why our paint line practically never stops. To ensure that the needs of every sector we service are successfully satisfied, top-notch adhesion is essential to the long-lasting durability and professional outcomes that we strive to give. We have a vertical, electrostatic polycron line that allows us to paint anything up to twenty feet in length. To ensure good adherence to the aluminum components and durable results, we pre-wash all of the pieces that will be painted using our four-stage procedure. Our Four-Step process consists of an etch, a clean wash, a balancing wash, and an industry standard pre-wash service.

The materials are adequately cleaned and chemically prepared by the pre-treat system, and then they are dried and prepared for painting. The pre-washing procedure guarantees a spotless surface on which to apply paint for the greatest outcomes. We also go above and above with our painting techniques. We apply the paint at a thickness of around 2 ml wet, which is greater than the standard in the field. Our personnel continuously monitors and inspects the passing pieces to guarantee a uniform application of color. The aluminum components are then baked in one of our specialized ovens to cure them. Each item is manually removed from the production line after curing and examined by our skilled specialists before being sent to the shipping department.

Custom Finishing Services: Anodizing and Powder Coating

Anodizing and powder coating are the additional types of finishing that Silver City Aluminum provides. Aluminum extrusions can be finished in a variety of ways that are custom. We collaborate with a variety of powder coaters and anodizers to provide our clients specialized aluminum coating solutions that fulfill their needs for both a polished appearance and improved functionality. This also aids in reducing lead times, which can vary depending on the completed component itself and the different powder-coating and anodizing methods used. Some coating solutions offer more advantages than others, while others are purely aesthetic. Some improve the aluminum’s resistance to corrosion, scratches, abrasions, and other forms of damage, while others provide practical advantages like improved grip and use.

Short or long pieces of aluminum extrusion are colored during the anodizing process. Once the extrusion and fabrication processes are finished, it can be used in small or large runs. With us, consumers have the choice of unique colors, multi-color possibilities, clear or black anodizing, among others. Upon request, we provide a broad selection of powder-coating products to produce a custom anodizing finish. Speak with one of our representatives if you’re interested in learning more about how powder-coating and anodizing may improve your custom aluminum extrusion parts, products, and components. We can help you choose the best solution for your project by answering any questions you may have regarding the custom finishing choices available for aluminum extrusions.
