This overview highlights some of the most common advantages that automation can bring to painting and coating professionals. Tracking metrics before and after implementing such technology makes it easier to see how things change over time.
When John Pistorino set out to create the "Sandcastle," a Hurricane-resistant demonstration building in Islamorada, Florida, he knew it would need to withstand the high winds and storm surges of the hurricanes that plague the Florida Keys.
New conductive gelcoats with graphene nanotubes as a protecting layer on top of fiber-reinforced plastics (FRPs) grant engineers and designers the ability to produce special surfaces and uniformly coat all final parts regardless of their conductive and non-conductive nature.
When thinking of corrosion protection in the auto industry, it is easy to focus on rust prevention for vehicles and auto parts themselves. But it can be just as important to protect the tooling and dies used to make the auto components.
People often choose powder coating for its durability, but that doesn't mean it remains resilient against all types of weather. Here are some crucial considerations about the weather and its potential impact on the powder-coated finish.
