IronShield provides superior coatings and surface preparation for numerous products of differing materials. They offer both liquid painting and powder coating services to both companies and individuals. IronShield can liquid coat (aka paint) just about anything that can fit in their 20′ x 10′ x 12′ booth.
IronShield offers powder coating for any object that can hold an electrostatic charge, endure high heats, and fit inside their 35’ x 10’ x 10’ oven. The bulk of powder coat projects are metal items. Take a look at the list below for a few examples of the types of items IronShield can powder coat for you.
- Architectural screening
- Car bodies
- Motorcycle frames
IronShield’s climate-controlled facility includes a blasting booth that is 20’ x 10’ x 12’. They use sand as their blasting medium to smooth, clean and prepare their project materials. The solid sand particles are shot out of the sandblaster and hit across the product surface at high speeds, acting like sandpaper to smooth the surface.
To prepare metal for powder coating, IronShield first rinses the metal, degreases it, rinses it again and then etches it. They use phosphate etching to improve the grip of the powder on the metal. Materials like aluminum can be very slick and will need extra assistance to bond the powder to the metal. Phosphate etching also significantly improves corrosion resistance to ensure that your newly powder coated item is resistant to rust and will stay in tip-top condition.
Powder coating is IronShield’s specialty. It is a form of dry coating that is applied electrostatically and then cured in an oven under high heats to turn the dry powder into an opaque, durable “skin.” Powder coating is ideal of metal items, but can also be used on other materials that can conduct a charge and also endure the heat of an oven. Powder coating is very popular for use on items as large as motorcycles, architectural screening and vehicles, down to bike parts, tire rims and door handles.
Liquid coating is a broad coating category and can be used for many different coating applications. It can be applied airlessly or aired to a variety of surfaces, including glass, plastic, wood, and metal. IronShield’s blasting and painting booth is 20’ x 10’ x 12’, which is large enough to handle automobile frames, mechanical equipment screening and other large items.
IronShield’s coating facilities are located in Omaha, Nebraska, but upon request IronShield will pick up and deliver your project’s materials using one of their many tractor trailer operations.
