ANODIZED

Description: A coating of aluminum oxide.
Benefits:

  • Much harder than the aluminum it replaces giving it excellent wear and abrasion resistance
  • Will not chip, peel or flake over time
  • Provides good stability
  • Ease of maintenance
  • Will not show fingerprints
  • Offers a large number of gloss and color alternatives
  • Allows the aluminum to maintain its metallic appearance
  • A lower initial finishing cost
  • Will not decompose
  • Non-toxic
  • Heat-resistant to the melting point of aluminum
  • Various mil thicknesses available based on individual applications

POWDER COATED

To view more in-depth information on powder coating Click Here.

Description: Powder coating is a dry finishing process, using finely ground particles of pigment and resin that are generally electrostatically charged and sprayed onto electronically ground parts.
Benefits:

  • Environmentally friendly
  • Resistant to chipping, cracking, peeling and corrosion
  • Bending Flexibility
  • Color selection is nearly unlimited
  • Clear finishes available
  • Many texture selections
  • Ideal for aluminum & steel grating, fencing, handrail or architectural applications

GALVANIZED

Galvanizing Fabrication Design (PDF)

Description: Immersing clean, oxide-free iron or steel into molten zinc in order to form a zinc coating that is metallurgically bonded to the iron or steels' surface.
Benefits:

  • Lower in cost
  • Life expectancy is in excess of 50 years in most rural environments, and 20 to 25 years plus, even in severe urban and coastal exposure
  • Outstanding resistance
  • Corrode preferentially to steel, providing cathodic protection to small areas of steel exposed through damage
  • Every part is protected, even recesses, sharp corners and inaccessible areas
  • Ease of inspection
  • Faster erection time

PVDF

Description: Liquid PVDF (polyvinylidene fluoride) is a fluoropolymer coating system. The carbon/fluorine bond is the key to the coating’s unsurpassed thermal, chemical and ultra violet resistance.
Benefits:

  • Out performs polyester powder, urethane, silicone polyester and acrylic coatings
  • Color & Gloss retention
  • Resistance to chalking
  • Meets or exceeds the physical test performance criteria of the Architectural Spray Coaters Association (ASCA 96) and the American Architectural Manufacturers Association (AAMA 2605.2)
  • Delivers long-term durability
  • Available in a rainbow of textures, sheens and colors, including micas, metallics and pearlescents
  • Corrosion & Stain resistant

Slip Resistant Surfaces

OnGrip™ Brochure

OnGrip™

Description: Plasma stream deposition process applying molten metal to a metal substrate.
Benefits:
