High Heat Applications
We’re building a part that we expect will be exposed to temperatures above 600°F for extended periods of time. Is there a powder coating that can take that kind of temperature?
Q. We’re building a part that we expect will be exposed to temperatures above 600°F for extended periods of time. Is there a powder coating that can take that kind of temperature? B.A.
A. Yes, there are powder formulas that can take up to around 1,000°F. Most of these formulas have silicone content. They come in a limited number of colors like black and green. Contact a few suppliers and tell them what you need. You should be able to find something that will work.
Masking is employed in most any metal finishing operation where only a specifically defined area of the surface of a part must be exposed to a process. Conversely, masking may be employed on a surface where treatment is either not required or must be avoided. This article covers the many aspects of masking for metal finishing, including applications, methods and the various types of masking employed.
I am an engineer on a large yacht build project and urgently need information and advice on choosing a finish for the aluminum deck plates in the engine room.
This alternative to TGIC-based polyester powder coatings offers similar performance and enhanced transfer efficiencies.
