Substituting Powder Coating for a Specific Standard

Ask an Expert From: Products Finishing, from Powder Coating Consultants, Div. of Ninan, Inc.

Question: This may be a dumb 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.


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.
