Substituting Powder Coating for a Specific Standard
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.
What is right for the customer?

Infrared cure is gaining increased attention from coaters as a result of shorter cure cycles and the possibility of smaller floor space requirements when compared to convection oven curing.
