On March 15 a contingent of CCAI Chicago Chapter members took part in a tour and Q&A at Gatto Industrial Platers’ facility on Roosevelt Road in Chicago.

 

The objective of the event was to educate and inform, and to create an open dialog between platers and coaters with the goal of achieving optimal results.

 

Gatto discussed their process, and led a question and answer period regarding how powder coating and plating processes interact and affect each other, as well as concerns that powder coaters and painters have coating over plating, and how to address resulting issues.
