CCAI will present a Powder Coating and Curing Processes Seminar at Alabama Power’s Technical Applications Center (TAC) in Calera, Alabama, Feb. 20-21. The seminar is co-sponsored by the Infrared Division of the Industrial Heating Equipment Association and Products Finishing magazine.
The day-and-a-half seminar features an introduction to the powder coating process, including cleaning and pretreatment, powder coating materials, application equipment and booths, curing options, part movement, running an efficient system, and testing methods. All of the classroom training will be provided by industry experts from some of the leading companies in the finishing industry.
Registration for the event includes seminar materials, a powder coating manual, infrared manual, breakfast and snacks on both days, lunch on day 1, a networking reception and a certificate of completion.
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.
Emerging technologies can save energy, ease environmental concerns
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.
