Winona Powder Coating, the largest high volume powder coater in Northern Indiana and Southern Michigan, said that they have been awarded recertification by Underwriters Laboratories (UL), meeting standards in both the United States and Canada.

 

Winona’s UL recertification, along with the company’s ISO9001 and JDM F17 certifications, conveys its dedication to meeting customers’ high expectations.

 

“We are proud to serve as the exclusive powder coater to two of the top industrial component suppliers in the world,” said Brian Bailey, president of Winona Powder Coating. “We understand how important it is for a customer to be able to offer a product that is UL certified throughout the entire supply chain. It’s a real asset to be able to offer this service to our customers that need and value UL certified powder coated components. We are constantly striving to raise the bar in order to compete with any in-house situation and meet our customers’ needs of exceptional quality levels.”

 

In addition to the UL recertification, Winona is currently in the process of seeking the AAMA 2604 specification. This specification is applicable to coatings of at least 30 microns thickness and intended primarily for commercial and architectural-grade applications. Over the next few months, tests will be conducted to evaluate abrasion resistance, chemical resistance and weathering. This specification recognizes high-performance coatings that can involve non-phosphate pretreatments, a necessity in some markets where phosphate pretreatments are not allowed due to environmental concerns.
