Dip-spin coating is a process whereby we place the product in a mesh basket, submerge it in a coating solution, and spin it around 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 to achieve precise, highly repeatable results.
Coating Systems, Inc. provides bulk coating of smaller parts up to 3 pounds each and as small as fractions of an ounce. Dip-spin coating also provides anti-corrosion and anti-wear properties as a dry film.
Dip-Spin Coating Technology
Dip-spin coating technology is compatible with all major coating types used in fastener finishing. Think of coatings that combine high resistance to chemical and galvanic/bi-metallic corrosion with UV stability as well as anti-galling properties and/or anti-vibration characteristics. Most dip-spin coatings are also compatible with sealants, adhesives and locking patches that dry to the touch when cured. Specific dip-spin coating types involved include fluorocarbons, zinc-rich, ceramic-metallic (aluminum-based with organic or inorganic topcoats), and waterborne systems.
The Dip-Spin Coating 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, we place them in the wire mesh basket and then submerge in the coating solution. This process is repeated as necessary. Once the coating is 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 for finishing. 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 Coating
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
