Question:

This may be a dumb question. The standard that I am interested in meeting is GM6174M. It consists of a zinc phosphate pretreatment, organic coating and oil immersion before shipping. My question is regarding the organic coating step of the standard. This standard reads as follows: "The organic coating is applied by barrel processing or racking over properly zinc-phosphated small parts."
Is there any way that powder coating can be used to meet this requirement? N. C.

Answer:

The simple answer is no, powder coating cannot be substituted for this specification. Sorry for my short answer, but sometimes the short answer is better.
