Pace Performance Coatings is a powder coating shop established in 2009. In our 6500 sq/ft facility, we can sand blast, and powder coat items up 8'x8'x20'.
We start by sand-blasting all substrates to bare metal, free of any rust or grime. Then the parts are hung on one of our large 20' carts. Then the substrates are cleaned and phosphate washed with our pre-treatment process. Next the rack is rolled into the dry off/ out gas oven. Once the parts are thoroughly dried and out gassed, The cart is rolled into the spray booth. When cool enough, the dry powder coating is applied with an electrostatic powder coating machine. - Powder coating can add 2-5 mil thickness (.002"-.006"). Most stock colors are applied at 3 mil.
After all items are coated, the rack is rolled into the oven to cure the powder. The parts remain in the oven for 20-35 minutes once the metal temperature of the coated parts reaches its cure temperature. This is about 350 degrees on average. After the cure, the rack is rolled into the cool off area. Once the items reach ambient temperature, they are ready for packaging, or customer pickup.
Turn Around If your parts are already blasted, the turn around time is 3-5 business days. If the parts need to be stripped of a coating, the turn around is around 5-10 business days. If you need a quicker turn around, we can expedite the service for a fee. We are located on the west side of Indy.
