When your equipment or product arrives at Advanced Finishing U.S.A., we pre-inspect it to make sure no damage occurred in shipping. Before coating, we can prepare your parts using several methods to ensure optimal performance of the specified coating system. We offer: chemical stripping, burn-off, grinding, shot blast, glass beading and chemical cleaning services to prepare all metal surfaces.
Powder coatings are precision-applied by electrostatic spraying or by fluid-bed dipping. Our automated coating lines and large batch coating areas allow us to process thousands of components and parts each day. After coating, each piece is heat-cured in an oven, where the tough plastic film is permanently fused to the metal. Our ovens are calibrated by an outside, independent contractor once a year to ensure accurate temperatures. We also have Datapaq™ technology for monitoring individual part temperatures while curing.
Our business is to put the finishing touch on your product. In addition to our powder coating services, Advanced Finishing USA, provides wet painting services for protection against corrosion, weather and UV protection and aesthetic purposes. For products that require masking, we design creative masking techniques using plugs, tape and/or magnets to prevent coating where it is not needed or not wanted.
Our sub-assembly services help to reduce total cost by reducing duplicative steps in handling, packaging, shipping and minimizing the cost of damaged goods. Advanced Finishing USA is an experienced sub-assembler and can handle all but the most complex projects. We also assemble kits, load Kan-Bans, stencil, label and provide final documentation if required.
Our finishing services include adding that final label or stencil that may be needed to identify the product for final use. This is a natural extension of our services that takes the guess-work out while eliminating additional handling.
At Advanced Finishing, quality is assured every step of the way. State of the art testing equipment is used to check every order with up to three separate inspections to ensure proper coating thickness, adhesion, gloss and cure meet customer specifications. Daily tests of our wash lines ensure proper cleaning of your parts. When required, parts can be spark tested to ensure a pinhole-free coating.
