To begin with, components or parts that need to be powder coated will enter the ‘dual cleaning zone’. As part of the pretreatment process, this zone accommodates many differing cleaning requirements. Especially for all the different parts that may need cleaning beforehand. Pretreatment is a vital aspect of powder coating. This is because it ensures that the surface is clean and free from dirt, residue, or existing treatments. It provides a clean surface to powder coat onto.
Without pretreatment, the powder coat may not adhere properly to the surface. It can therefore have a negative impact on the coating’s performance and lifespan. Additionally, creating a uniform coating all over the component can be tricker with a surface that has not gone through pre-treatment first. Our ‘dual cleaning’ section gives the operators the process controls to dial in the specific treatment required, to support ‘just in time’ production associated with the automotive supply chain.
