“We manufacture an ISO container chassis; the “trailer” that holds the shipping container unloaded from ships. Presently, we blast the fabricated parts and two main I beams, weld them together in a jig, apply a zinc-rich primer and urethane topcoat, then install axles, tires, wiring, etc. The steel frame is about 3000 pounds after welding. Is powdercoating a viable option, and would it be as resistant to corrosion?”
“Yes powder coating would dramatically improve your corrosion resistance and is well suited for your application. The automotive industry currently powdercoats a variety of products used in vehicle undercarriages.
Your part size and weight can easily be accommodated in a well designed powder coating process. We suggest you contact us for insight on how best to proceed with your investigation.”
