IronShield provides top notch surface preparation and coatings for a wide variety of materials and products. They offer both powder coating and liquid coating services to both individuals as well as commercial or industrial companies. IronShield can liquid coat (paint) just about anything that can fit in their large 20′ x 10′ x 12′ booth.
IronShield offers powder coating for any compatible object that can fit inside their 35’ x 10’ x 10’ oven, endure the oven’s high temperatures and hold an electrostatic charge. The bulk of items that are powder coated tend to be metal items. Below is a list of a few examples of the types of items IronShield can powder coat for you.
- Car bodies
- Motorcycle frames
- Single line hand rails
- Architectural screening
Preparing for Powder Coating
IronShield’s climate-controlled indoor facility includes a blasting booth that is 20’ x 10’ x 12’. They use sand as their blasting medium to smooth, clean and prepare their project materials. The solid sand particles are shot out of the sandblaster and hit across the object’s surface at high speeds, scouring the surface.
To prepare metal for powder coating, IronShield first rinses the metal, degreases it, rinses it again and then etches it. They use phosphate etching to improve the adhesion of the powder to the metal. Materials like aluminum can be very slick and will need extra assistance to adhere the powder to the metal. Phosphate etching also significantly improves the corrosion resistance to ensure that your newly powder coated item is resistant to corroding and will stay in mint condition.
Powder coating is IronShield’s specialty. It is a form of dry coating that is applied electrostatically and then cured in an oven under high heats to turn the dry powder into an opaque, durable “skin.” Powder coating is ideal of metal items, but can also be used on other materials that can conduct a charge and also endure the heat of an oven. Powder coating is very popular for use on items as large as motorcycles, architectural screening and vehicles, down to bike parts, tire rims and door handles.
Liquid coating is a broad category and can be used for many different applications. It can be applied aired or airlessly to many different surfaces, including glass, wood, plastic and metal. IronShield’s booth is 20’ x 10’ x 12’, which is large enough to handle architectural screening, automobiles and other large pieces.
