Technicoat Coating Process
AME's TechniCoat 10-2™ is NOT just a coating but a specific process. The preparation of the material to be coated is 60% of the process known as TechniCoat 10-2™. The fact is, you can have the best coating materail around, but if it doesn't stay on the substrate, then it is useless. Therefore, at AME, our process of TechniCoat 10-2™ is certified, verified and controlled so that when you get a TechniCoated coil, you are getting more than just a coated coil, you are getting a process that not only do we stand behind, but we are proud of. Our coating is polyurethane free as well as Hex-chromium and lead free.
The process of TechniCoat 10-2™ application starts with providing a plant facility with a stringent non-contaminate environment. When a piece is received for coating, an initial inspection is performed. If the piece passes inspection then it is moved on to go through a multi-step cleaning process finalized by a chemical etch primer. Once acceptably prepared, then the dip process begins by using a controlled lowering and withdrawal into a dip tank for a complete immersion of the piece. Next, a process to prevent bridging takes place. Then a finish coat is applied. The piece is then moved to an area for final curing and inspection before crating and shipping.
