Major Upgrade to Powder Coating
January 17, 2018
Wesgar is pleased to announce the completion of a major upgrade to our powder-coat line. The upgrade installation was started on December 22, 2017 and completed successfully on January 8, 2018. The upgrade project removed the previous three stages of the washline and upgraded it with five new stages. The new five-stage process consists of: a high-performance detergent Iron Phosphate for Multi-Metal processing, three rinse stages for effective cleaning, an application of a high-performance sealer.
This new powder coating washline will ensure we achieve a minimum of 1000-1500 salt spray hours* when applying a powder topcoat only and a minimum of 2000 salt spray hours* when applying a powder primer and final topcoat. Additional benefits of our upgrade and chemical selection include increased paint adhesion, second-to-none durability, and superior corrosion resistance on both steel and aluminum substrates.
*The salt spray tests indicated are performed per the ASTM B117 standard.
