Schafer Powder Coating process

Our Process includes a six-stage Iron Phosphate Pretreatment Washer.

The stages are:

  1.  Alkaline Clean
  2.  Rinse
  3.  Iron Phosphate
  4.  Rinse
  5.  Non-chrome Seal Rinse
  6.  Deionized Water Halo Rinse

These stages ensure optimal long term powder adhesion and corrosion resistance. Passing Salt Spray tests for 2,000+ hours are possible, depending on substrate and powder selection. Next, your parts go to our clean room. This climate-controlled room is the heart of maintaining your quality. Finely ground particles of pigment and resin (powder) are electro-statically charged and sprayed onto the parts to be coated.  These parts are electrically grounded so the charged particles adhere to them until melted and fused into a solid coating in our curing oven.

Unlike wet paints, there is no waiting after the heated cure has occurred. The parts are completed and ready for your use!  The powder coating process is environmentally friendly and virtually pollution-free!

Frequently the parts we coat have critical surfaces that must not be contaminated with coating.  We purchase, and/or design and acquire mask materials that will ensure coatings are applied only where required.
