Powder Coating Monel Fasteners
Do fasteners (rivets) made from monel behave similar to stainless steel in that they require a pre-etching or abrading before a paint or powder coat?
Q.We need to paint or powder coat fasteners (rivets) made from monel. I would guess they behave similar to stainless steel, having a smooth, silvery finish and therefore require a pre-etching or abrading. Please confirm if this is correct. D. C.
A. Yes. Use either Silane or scuff the surface with sanding or grit blasting to obtain good powder adhesion.
This alternative to TGIC-based polyester powder coatings offers similar performance and enhanced transfer efficiencies.
