Methods

Method with Powder coating


The object is prepared for the coating procedure via sweep blasting. Van Merksteijn Staalcoating can also brush-blast the object.




Galvanized structural components weighing up to 8000 kg are suspended from the crossbeams




Compressed air is used to remove any residual blasting material from the structural component.



Any parts or corners that are difficult to access can be treated effectively in the manual powder coating cabinet.



A total of 24 fully automated spray powder guns are used to apply the protective powder coating to the component being treated. The use of an overspray powder recovery system reduces the impact of any powder waste to an absolute minimum.



The component being treated is transported through a 90 m long curing oven.
Before the component leaves the overhead conveyor and is loaded onto the semitrailer, it undergoes a rigorous inspection with respect to coating thickness and quality.



After the component is removed from the overhead conveyor, all contact points are inspected and finished off by hand whenever necessary.

 

Method with liquid paint application


The object is prepared for the coating procedure via sweep blasting. Van Merksteijn Staalcoating can also brush-blast the object.



The components will be applied a protective coating manually.
