STATE-OF-THE-ART ENHANCED PERFORMANCE PRETREATMENT (EPP)

Preferred Powder Coating utilizes a nano-technology conversion coating in both our automated and batch paint systems. This process, known as EPP "Enhanced Performance Pretreatment" is a conversion coating process developed to replace the outdated iron and zinc phosphate conversion coatings. 

The EPP process allows Preferred Powder to compress the surface preparation which allows us to meet and exceed the pretreatment needs of high performance powder products and customer specifications for multi-metal applications including all RoHS and WEEE legislative directives. 

Preferred Powder Coating utilizes CNC automated monitoring with real-time and continuous automatic chemical adjustment to ensure our surface preparation system is always properly balanced. Computer screens throughout the organization display the specific operating parameters of each washer stage. At the same time, the automatic pumping system maintains the preset chemical balances. 

 

CONSTANT LIVE CHEMICAL ANALYSIS AND CONTROL

If you can't clean a part correctly, you can't paint it successfully. Preferred Powder has long understood the value of having sound business practices and subsequently invested in the most advanced process monitoring and chemical control available. We dynamically monitor our chemical dilution ratios much tighter than manufacturers suggest with tightened tolerances our system corrects automatically in real time. There is a manual backup to check the information constantly. It is not performed by the powder coating line but by our maintenance department to verify the accuracy of the system. This is true for both the cleaning and the titration cycles. It allows is to run consistently in a very tightly controlled band guaranteeing good adhesion as well as a good surface finish.


PPC can generate over 10,000 gallons of Reverse Osmosis (RO) water per day to help control all aspects of our chemical cleaning composition as well as provide a completely neutral rinse. 

This information is live, stored in the cloud, and available for any customers to view upon request.
