Painting Fish Hooks
What can you suggest in terms of applying a thicker coating to mass produce hooks that won’t bind together and thereby produce contact points?
Q. We are a fish hook manufacturer. We use the dip and spin method for coating some on some products and we would like to increase our film thickness without producing “contact points” (pools of paint where two hooks cross). Besides that challenge, we also have situations where hooks will bind together and become one huge tangled mass. We paint thousands of hooks at one time and this is a must in order to keep costs down.
What can you suggest in terms of applying a thicker coating to mass produce hooks that won’t bind together and thereby produce contact points? Is there painting equipment other than dip/spin that will do what we need? To maintain our position in the industry, it is important that we have a smooth finish. W.V.
Types of phosphate conversion coatings, how to apply them, and their specific functions.
Better adhesion, enhanced corrosion and blister resistance, and reduced coating-part interactions make pretreatment a must.
Simply heating up the substrate does not cure the coating. There are many variables to consider when choosing the best cure oven for your application...
