Powder coating is a
state-of-the-art method of applying a decorative finish to a wide range of materials and products. The powder used for the process is a mixture of finely ground particles of pigments and resin, which is sprayed onto a surface to be coated. The charged powder particles adhere to the electrically grounded surfaces until heated and fused into a smooth coating in a curing oven. The result is a uniform, durable, high-quality, and attractive finish.
We utilize many types of liquid coating specifications. Depending on size, liquid parts are run through our six stage iron phosphate pre-treatment system. If too large to fit through the system, they will be cleaned and iron phosphated with our large part cleaning system which utilizes a wand operated high pressure washer. We can cure nearly any coating on any part, because the variety of liquid coatings we can give the greatest range of coating chemistry and curing temperatures
Filling, Bondo, Sanding, and Grinding
Not all parts are perfect from the start, but that is OK because filling holes or reshaping the surface is our specialty. We stock a variety of bondo to satisfy metal, plastic, and wood substrates. The bondo is very durable can withstand extreme heat and cure very strong. Britt provides beautiful surface filling for paint and powder coating to make your part visually and cosmetically perfect.
