Dip spin coating is a process whereby the product is placed in a mesh basket, submerged in a coating solution, and spun to remove the excess coating. The temperature and viscosity of the coating, immersion time, spin direction and velocities, and the cure method are among the variables that allow users to customize a process recipe and achieve precise, highly repeatable results.
Coating Systems, Inc. provides bulk coating of smaller parts. Up to 3 pounds each, but as small as fractions of an ounce. Dip spin coating will also provide anti-corrosion and anti-wear as a dry film.
Dip spin coating technology is compatible with all major coatings types used in fastener finishing; specifically, coatings that combine high resistance to chemical and galvanic/bi-metallic corrosion with UV stability, anti-galling properties and/or anti-vibration characteristics. Most would also be compatible with sealants, adhesives and locking patches and would be dry to the touch when cured. The specific coating types involved include fluorocarbons, zinc-rich, ceramic metallic (aluminum-based with organic or inorganic topcoats), and waterborne systems.
The Dip Spin Process
The dip spin coating process consists of cleaning, application, and curing. The parts are first cleaned and then pretreated to remove oxides. Once the pretreatment dries, they are placed in the wire mesh basket is submerged in the coating solution. This process is repeated as necessary. Once the coating has been properly applied, the products are spun at high-speed to remove unnecessary and excess coating. The products are then placed in a state-of-the-art curing oven to finish. Coating Systems, Inc. only uses the best technology to perform this process and we have perfected it over the years. That’s why you can trust us with your dip spin coating needs.
The Advantages of Using Dip-Spin
Dip spin coating has a number of benefits for your products:
- Economical method for bulk processing small parts – i.e. fasteners, stampings, and springs
- Repeatable (Especially for threaded parts)
- Well suited for high production coating
- Transfer efficiency is high (normally over 98%)
- Possible to efficiently combine multiple combinations of coatings
