Job shop finds five ways to the 'finish' line
For 37 years, a Connecticut job shop has used powder - and only powder - to coat parts. Today, it offers five different application processes to meet the needs of its diverse clients.
Electrostatic spraying may be the most widely used method of applying powder coatings, but it's not the only way to coat a product. Plastonics Inc, a 30,000 square-foot job shop in Hartford, Conn., has five departments: electrostatic spray, fluidised-bed dip, minicoat tumbling, dip to line, and flame spray.
