Epoxy coating is used on plastics and metals. It can be on a kid’s baseball helmet or the office chair you sit in everyday. Specialty coatings provide benefits based off the product at hand. For example powder coating for plastics has a wide variety of textures and finishes, better durability than uncoated plastic, and improved UV resistance. By comparison, powder coating for metals, are thicker than conventional paint and emits nearly zero volatile organic compounds. Powder coatings for metals and plastics have slight variations, but are used for different materials. The same goes for nylon, copolymer, and plastisol specialty coatings.
Specialty coatings are applied to numerous products and applications. There are also benefits for using epoxy floor coating. Imagine the flooring inside an aircraft carrier’s garage or an automotive garage’s flooring. It’s a smooth, reflective flooring surface. Epoxy coating is hard to wear and a durable solutions for commercial and industrial environments.
Advantages of specialty coating flooring:
• An easy to clean, seamless surface
• Durable floors to withstand the hardest of wear and tear
• An attractive flooring surface
• Cost efficient flooring
• Environmentally friendly
• Increased productivity capabilities
However, if you are looking for a more involved process, engineering, CAD, and value added services are always available. Engineering services utilizes materials and processes for the automotive, military and environmental specification standards. Technical support is offered with engineering services, assisting with coating applications and custom coatings, developing and designing application systems, or designing fixtures and tooling for coating requirements.
CAD services create timely fashioned designs, tooling, and cost estimating. CAD files can be 2-D or 3-D,.dxf to.iges files, or using a native SolidWorks file.
Value Added Services is a number of additional services all in one: outsourcing capabilities, sub-assembly experience, inventory management, or trucking options. Here is where the “final assembly” takes place; making sure customers are satisfied before making the final improvements. Custom applications, thickness, masking and tooling also happen under value added services.
So if creating a flawless industrial floor with epoxy coating isn’t along the lines of what you were thinking, there are more options than presented in this article. Research is always wise. You’ll come to realize that specialty coatings are in most industries, such as alternative energy, automotive, office furniture, appliances, consumer goods, and medical or surgical tools.
