Powder Coating with IronShield
IronShield provides surface preparation and high-end coatings for a wide variety of objects and materials. They offer both liquid coating and powder coating services. IronShield can liquid coat, or paint, just about anything that can fit in their 20′ x 10′ x 12′ booth.
IronShield offers powder coating for any object that can hold an electrostatic charge, endure high heats, and fit inside their 35’ x 10’ x 10’ oven. The bulk of powder coat projects are metal items. Take a look at the list below for a few examples of the types of items IronShield can powder coat for you.
- Car bodies
- Motorcycle frames
- Architectural screening
- Single line hand rails
IronShield’s indoor, climate-controlled facility includes a blasting booth that is 20’ x 10’ x 12’. They use sand as their blasting medium to smooth, clean and shape their project materials. The solid sand particles are shot out of the sandblaster and hit across the hard surface at high speeds, acting as sandpaper to smooth the surface.
To prepare metal for powder coating, IronShield first rinses the metal, degreases it, rinses it again and then etches it. They use phosphate etching to improve the adhesion of the powder to the metal. Materials like aluminum can be very slick and will need a little extra help to keep the powder coat adhered. Phosphate etching also significantly improves the corrosion resistance to ensure that your newly powder coated item is resistant to rusting and will stay in near-new condition.
Powder coating is IronShield’s specialty. It is a form of dry coating that is applied electrostatically and then cured in an oven under high heats to turn the dry powder into an opaque, durable “skin.” Powder coating is ideal of metal items, but can also be used on other materials that can conduct a charge and also endure the heat of an oven. Powder coating is very popular for use on items as large as motorcycles, architectural screening and vehicles, down to bike parts, tire rims and door handles.
Liquid coating is a broad category and can be used for many different things. It can be applied aired or airlessly to apply the liquid paint to several different surfaces, including glass, wood, plastic and metal. IronShield’s booth is 20’ x 10’ x 12’, which is large enough to handle architectural screening, automobiles and other large pieces.
Upon request, IronShield will pick up and deliver your project’s materials using one of their many tractor trailer operations. Their delivery services ensure your product is well taken care of and will not suffer dents, scratches, chips or abrasions.
