Powder Coating with IronShield

IronShield provides high-end coatings and surface preparation for a vast selection of products of differing materials. They offer both liquid painting and powder coating services to individuals and businesses alike. IronShield can liquid coat (or paint) just about anything that can fit in their 20′ x 10′ x 12′ booth.

IronShield offers powder coating for any object that can fit inside their 35’ x 10’ x 10’ oven, hold an electrostatic charge, and endure the oven’s high heats. The bulk of powder coating projects are metal items. Take a look at the list below for a few examples of the types of items IronShield can powder coat for you.

PREPARATION

Blasting

IronShield’s climate-controlled 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 product surface at high speeds, acting like sandpaper to smooth the surface.

Etching

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

Powder coating is IronShield’s specialty. It is a form of dry coating that is applied electrostatically and then cured in a large oven under high heats to turn the dry powder into an opaque, durable shell. Powder coating is ideal of metal items, but can also be used on other materials that can conduct a charge and also endure high heats. Powder coating is very popular for use on large items like car bodies, down to small items like tire rims and door handles.

Liquid Coating

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.
