Powder Coating

Powder Coating

A powder coat finish is a durable, corrosion-resistant finish which can be applied to steel, aluminum, brass, copper or iron – virtually any type of metal. The process begins with stripping the item to bare metal. This is done to remove old paints, rust, finishes, dirt and grease. Once the item is prepared, the item is then sprayed with a dry powder through a gun that electrostatically charges it. It’s this electrical charge that causes it to stick or “coat” the metal. The item is then baked in an oven and cured at 400 degrees for 10 minutes. During the baking process, the powder gels and flows into the tightest corners to give it the most durable and brilliant finish available.

Blue Lake Industries LLC can provide a superior powder coat finish that is resistant to rust, cracks, chips, peeling and fading. Powder coating is available in several hundred colors and textures, and can even be done in metallic, Transparent and Hammertone finishes.

Media Blasting

Media Blasting is used to remove paint, clean, and etch metal surfaces well for good powder coat adherence. At Blue Lake Industries LLC, we feel it is essential to clean and prep every part properly before coating. It is our prep process that sets us apart from our competition. If a part is not cleaned and prepared properly, the durability of the powder coating will fail quickly. When it comes to media blasting your projects, Blue Lake Industries LLC has the equipment it takes to do the job!

pass through blast machine
Pass Through Blaster

Capacity 36” x 72” x 25’ This blaster has (8) blasting wheels to propel the media. The wheels are positioned to hit every angle of the parts as they pass through. Our Pass Through Blaster is a fully automated process, allowing us to adjust the speed of the line as the parts pass through. This machine is used for high production runs of railings, gates, grills, channel, angle iron, etc…

Cabinet Blasting Booth

Capacity 12’ x 8’ x 22’ The large blast booth is used to blast large components such as trailers, car frames, and large structural weldments. Our cabinet has a full recovery floor to recycle the media as we are blasting. This greatly increases productivity and efficiency. This blasting process is much the same as Sandblasting, the only difference is we use a different blasting media.

Table Blaster

This blast machine is ideal for blasting tables, chairs, heavy steel plates etc… This machine uses (1) blast wheel which propels the media. The parts are placed on a 6’ diameter table which rotates allowing the blast media to contact the entire area of the parts on the table. It only takes three minutes for this machine to run a complete cycle.

tumble blaster
Tumble Blasting

Capacity 36” x 800 lbs. The Tumble blast machine is used to blast small production parts. This machine uses (1) blast wheel to propel the media. The parts are placed on a rubber belt which rotates on bearing rollers allowing the parts to “tumble” as the media is propelled from the top of the chamber. This machine allows us to blast small production parts very efficiently. It only takes two minutes for this machine to run a complete cycle.
