Electrostatic Spray Painting

Most of our electrostatic spray painting work is on window sills and door frames. These aren’t as exciting to photograph.

This month, however, we did a restoration project on our offices. The before and after photos of staircase are much more dramatic.

Our painters start by prepping the metal pieces that are going to be sprayed. We worked on the door, the stairs, and that pole.

Unlike other painting processes, this method includes running an electrical current through the metal object.

The paint goes through a spray gun runs with an opposite charge, attracting it to the metal surface.

There is less over spray which means less cleanup, and without paint brushes, the finish is smooth.

Refurbish Cast Iron Radiators

Some houses have beautiful old cast iron radiators hidden under years of caked on paint, like these vintage American Radiator Company pieces. This fall we have been refurbishing lots of radiators, as home owners prepare for the colder weather to come.

These came to us so coated with old layers of paint that you couldn’t see the wonderful filigree.

We sandblasted the layers of old paint away to reveal the clean metal underneath. We powder coated them with a simple metallic gray that really emphasizes the design in the metal.

They are now good as new, and ready warm their house for many more years. Make sure to check out our tips for caring and maintaining your powder coating finish.

Powder Coating Fabrications

New fabrications will develop rust if they are not treated promptly and correctly. First, we sandblast the piece to remove mill scale, oil, and rust from the welding process.  We then evenly apply the powder to the metal surface of the fabrication. Finally, the piece goes into the oven for the powder to gel into a smooth, even surface for a long lasting, rust preventing finish.

These metal wave stands posed an interesting challenge because of the complexity of the shape. But no matter what the difficulty, our skilled technicians pay attention to the finer details to ensure a high-quality powder coat.

Sandblast old paint away

Sandblasting renews and refurbish old metal fixtures caked with layers of old paint. Instead of just painting over the problem, you can sandblast it for a fresh start.

We can clean up old fixtures and powder coat them to look brand new.

Refurbish Railings

We also powder coat railings, fencing, and gates. These window guards came to us rusted and layered with old paint. We refurbished them to look as good as new. Take a look at our process …

We cleaned the railings by sandblasting the rust and paint away. Our skilled technicians painstakingly made sure to reach every corner and joint thoroughly.  This stage is time intensive to ensure a high quality and long lasting powder coat and prevent future rust causing the powder coat to flaking off.

Sandblasting created a texture on the metal surface, making it an ideal surface for the colored powder. We sprayed these window guards with a durable powder coat to survive outdoors all year round.

Our skilled technicians take the time and the effort to create the highest quality final product the first time around.
