Liquid Coating Application

Rack spray, dip spin, and mini-coater processes are primarily for applying wet, liquid paints, whether solvent or water based. Allegheny Coatings' licensed zinc-aluminum flake coatings, high-temperature resistant coatings, and dry film lubricants are typically applied using these processes depending on the parameters required by the specification.


Rack Spray

First-class aesthetics; best for larger or heavier parts


Small-mid size bulk processing options for fastener hardware and delicate components

Rack Dip-Spin

Small batch processing for complex geometry parts with critical aesthetic requirements.

Surface Preparation


Alkaline Cleaning

Removal of grease or oil prior to application of the finish


Media Blasting

Preconditioning to remove other coatings or surface imperfections prior to coating application


Part Sealing

Inorganic & organic sealing for the powder metal industry

Alkaline cleaning, media blasting, and part sealing are all preconditioning processes used to prepare the surface of the part prior to coating application. Alkaline cleaning is best for chemically degreasing or removing oils, while media blasting is best for physically removing prior coatings or surface imperfections. Part sealing is to fill porous powder metal parts prior to applying a surface coating.
