Question:

A while back you answered a question about special tooling used to form parts that already have a powder coating on them. We have tried several things to eliminate tooling marks on bare aluminum, but one seems to work the best. We found using a 10 mil vinyl film between the part and the bottom die to work best. Please forward this to your readership. L.W.

Answer:

Thanks for the information and consider it forwarded.
