Sheet Metal Jensen Powder Finishers Powder Coating Wisconsin


Pre-finishing Provides Superior Results

Improve the Quality of Your Product

Thorough preparation of a metal surface is the first step to getting a perfect, high quality powder coating. Pre-finishing involves cleaning dirt, oil, grease or other contaminants off the metal to create smooth, blemish-free surface for the paint to adhere to. Jensen Powder Finishers offers a full range of pre-finishing services, including a multi-stage nanotechnology wash system, and we can help determine which processes are right for your project.

Pre-finishing Services:

  • Light Disassembly: Breaking down a complex product allows for targeted inspection and attention, ensuring your product will receive complete powder coating coverage.
  • Masking: Precise masking – including the protection of holes, threads, rods and tube ends – is a crucial step in powder coating to eliminate the need for secondary operations to remove paint later. Masking can also help achieve different colors, finishes or textures on various parts of an object.
  • 5-stage Wash: A thorough cleaning, rinse, protective chemical treatment, secondary rinse and chemical sealing completely cleans the product of foreign material such as dust and metal flakes, as well as preparing the surface for paint adhesion ensuring a smooth, flawless paint job.
  • Nanotechnology Pretreatment: Nanotechnology tunes the microstructures of metals which help to enhance the adhesion of coatings, increase durability and prevent corrosion. Nanotechnology-based conversion coatings are based on oxides of metals such as titanium or zirconium, and do not use regulated heavy metals such as nickel, manganese, chromium or lead. They also do not contain any organic components, which means that the COD and BOD load is zero. Since there are no heavy metals or phosphates to dispose of, nanotechnology processes represent a major step forward in terms of ecological sustainability and environmental responsibility.
  • Quick Dry Off: Our quick drying system saves you time and money and eliminates the possibility of bubbles or smearing during powder coating.

Pre-finishing Benefits:

  • Surface Preparation: Ensures that the surface is free from contaminants, oxidation and any imperfections that could compromise the adhesion of the powder coating.
  • Adhesion: Powder coating adheres more effectively to a clean and properly prepared surface, resulting in a more durable and long-lasting finish.
  • Smoothness: Smooths out any rough spots or imperfections on the surface for a smoother and more uniform appearance once the powder coating is applied.
  • Durability & Corrosion Resistance: Creates a protective barrier between the substrate and environmental factors such as moisture, chemicals and UV radiation. This helps enhance the durability, improve corrosion resistance and increase the longevity of the powder coating finish.
  • Appearance: Improves the overall appearance of the product by ensuring that the surface is free from blemishes, scratches or other defects that may become more visible once the powder coating is applied.
  • Cost-effectiveness: Ultimately leads to a better-quality finish, resulting in cost savings over the long term by minimizing the need for touch-ups or repairs.
