At Tru-Line Manufacturing, we are able to help lower project costs and reduce project delays for our customers by providing powder coating services in our facility. Additionally, we offer powder coating as a standalone service to original equipment manufacturers in the construction, architectural components, ornamental ironwork, and electronics industries. Visit the Facility and Equipment page of our website for specific details about our powder coating system.
Like all of our processes, our coating processes are closely monitored to ensure a high quality and durable finish every time. All process solutions are checked daily for conformance to rigid quality standards while every coated part produced is visually checked by the critical eyes of our trained technicians. Our custom powder coating quality system is registered to the ISO9001:2008 international quality system standard.
Powder Coating Vs. Other Coatings
We powder coat over 75% of the tubular assemblies that we fabricate because of the high durability of powder coating. Typical powder finishes have a longer life expectancy than traditional coatings, such as galvanizing and zinc plating. Tru-Line recommended powder finishes have proven salt spray resistance results from 500 to 1,000 hours has tested per ASTM B117 and performed by independent laboratories.
Other benefits of powder coating include:
- High Corrosion Resistance/Superior Durability
- UV Resistant
- Thousands of Colors Available
- Process Certified by Original Equipment Manufacturers
- Low Cost/High Value Added
- Attractive Appearance
- Safe for the Environment
Powder paints and processes are more environmentally-friendly than other coating processes. Unlike traditional wet paints, waste powder can be recycled into the system, filtered, and mixed with new powder to be reused. In contrast, the waste streams associated with traditional plating and wet paint processes contain many harmful chemicals that must be disposed of using special waste treatment systems or by hiring a hazardous waste hauler who will transport the waste to a certified waste treatment facility. By powder coating, we eliminate the costly need for hazardous waste removal and the risk of environmental contamination.
