Highly Protective Powder Coated Finishes
Donatello Doors are now 100% Thermoset Powder Coated to Marine Standards
Our 9 Step Treatment Process:
|1||Surface Etching||Door components are dipped into a special mix of chemicals cleans and etches the surface to increase adhesion of powder.|
|2||ZINC PHOSPHATE||After rinsing, the door parts are dipped in a zinc phosphate solution. The chemical reacts with the steel to form a zinc barrier that is an industry standard for rust proofing|
|3||OVEN DRY||The zinc coated parts are then dried in an oven to remove all residual moisture|
|4||PRIMER POWDER||Next we apply a marine quality powder primer by electrostatic spray. This method ensures the coating reaches into all areas.|
|5||FIRST OVEN CURE||The parts are cured in an oven at 180ºC for 20 minutes.|
|6||BASE COAT POWDER||Next we apply the base color powder coat which gives an even color and adds UV protection.|
|7||SECOND OVEN CURE||The parts go back in the oven for another 20 minutes at 180ºC.|
|8||CLEARCOAT POWDER||A Clearcote powder is then applied by electrostatic spray. The gives a super durable finish and even more UV protection.|
|9||THIRD OVEN CURE||The parts go back in the oven for a third baking at 180ºC for 30 minutes. This integrates all layers together to give "hard as nails" protection.|
