12 This item was sourced on www.MFG.com as one of the items in an RFQ in USA for Powder Coating Powdercoating of a 12" R.T. Straight Arm Faceouts. The buyer needs to have some powder coating done for their new store at the Gettysburg National Battlefield Museum. Their fixtures and hardware will be black, but some of the hardware is only available in chrome; so, they need have them changed to black. They believe this means stripping the chrome (either blast or acid), then powder-coating. There are a total of 3148 parts (6 styles). Please see the attached spreadsheet and the buyer’s other RFQs. Attached is a list of the parts that they will order from Econoco which need to be coated black. You can see a specific detail of each part by going to www.econoco.com then entering the part number in the “search” box. Please look into this at your earliest convenience; the buyer would like to get it planned as soon as possible so it can be complete and delivered by end of February.

Powder Coating: Powder coating is the process of applying a paint coating formulated as a powder to a part. Two common types of powder coating systems are electrostatic and fluid bed powder coating. The nature of these processes dictates that powder coating is used only on materials that are suitable for conductivity or can be subjected to high temperatures without changing their physical properties. Electrostatic powder coating utilizes a wand to impart an electrostatic charge to the powdered paint and direct it toward the part. Fluid bed powder coating utilizes a stream of air to suspend the powder coating while a heated part is passed through the suspended coating. Heat is the agent that attracts the powder to the part and begins the bonding process.
