Vertical Powder Coating Application
Extrusions of up to 7.2 metres long, even flexible polyamide types are automatically transferred to the vertical plane. They are then taken into a fully computerised, ten stage chemical pre-treatment tunnel.
There they are cleaned, etched and chromated by a synchronised spray system. They then pass through a rinse section that uses an impressive 10,000 litres of pure de-mineralised water every hour! Every stage of this process is computer controlled to ensure the high standard of quality you expect from Vertik-al.
The extrusions then pass through the dry off prior to powder coating. Temperature in this section of the process is also computer controlled, ensuring metal temperature stays within set parameters. The heat exchange system within this section also ensures the atmosphere is not contaminated and the extrusions arrive at the coating stage in a consistent, clinically clean dry condition.
Coating the extrusions is as revolutionary as the first process - the coating thickness is controlled to extremely close tolerances over the 7 metre length. This ensures consistent quality extrusion after extrusion! The coating is then cured, not in a conventional oven, but in a micro chip controlled environment, again completely free from contaminates.
