Question:

We manufacture 0.050 inch aluminum parts that require stainless steel PEM standoff inserts. We powder coat the products with a thin film coating to achieve a class A surface finish. What do you recommend for a quick and easy filler material to hide the heads of the inserts? V.S.

Answer:

Our readers like to use Lab-Metal, manufactured by Alvin Products. It is an aluminum filler that is both conductive and sandable. It has no problem handling the cure oven temperatures required for powder coating. They are listed on PF Online (http://www.pfonline.com/suppliers.html)or in the 2003 Products Finishing Directory and Technology Guide.
