What is Powder Coating?
Powder coating is an advanced method of applying a decorative and protective finish to a wide range of materials and products that are used by both industries and consumers. The powder used for the process is a mixture of finely ground particles of pigment 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. Powder coating is the fastest-growing finishing technology in North America, representing over 10% of all industrial finishing applications.

Why Powder Coating?
Powder coating is significantly more durable than conventional paints. It is extremely resistant to chips, abrasion, heat up to 400 F, UV light, fuel and chemicals - up to 10 times more durable than ordinary paint. Powder coating eliminates runs, drips and sags common with paint finishes. Also, corrosion resistance properties are difficult to achieve with other methods or materials. Wide selection of colors available including OEM, translucent, and metallic. Powder coating is environmentally friendly, there are no solvents or hazardous material used.

Painting

In House capabilities

DDS has (2) Binks 12' x 10' x 12' Spray Booths and (2) 7' x 7' x 13' ovens for baking the finish

What is Wet Painting

In this process finish paint is applied to a clean dry surface using atomized liquid paint. The paint is cured either using an oven (baked) or air dried. The process of wet painting allows for an broad rangle of colors and product composition. It is easly applied to non magnetic items and items that cannot be processed in the extreme heat of the curring ovens.

Disadvantages of Wet Painting

Wet painting takes longer to process than powder coated items. If the item has to be air dried the possiblity of contaminination is always present. Wet painted items will take between 24 to 48 hours to cure before packaging.
