A Step-by-Step Guide for Assessing Part Surface Preparation

Join Joey Golliver, the world-renowned powder coating expert and author of “The Powder Coach’s Playbook,” as he walks you through verifying if a part needs mechanical preparation and how to do it effectively in this instructional video.

Comprehensive Demonstration: Assessing Part Surface Preparation

Introduction: In this comprehensive demonstration, Joey shares a step-by-step guide for assessing part surface preparation and determining if mechanical prep is necessary before powder coating.

Step-by-Step Guide:

  1. Inspect Surface Conditions:
    • Thoroughly examine the part for visible contaminants such as rust, scale, oils, or old coatings. Use visual inspection and tactile checks to identify any surface imperfections.
  2. Identify Contaminants:
    • Determine the type and extent of contaminants present. This could include grease, dust, rust, or previous coating residues that need to be removed to ensure proper adhesion of the powder coating.
  3. Evaluate Adhesion Requirements:
    • Assess the specific adhesion requirements for the powder coating process you are using. Different projects may have varying standards for surface cleanliness and preparation.
  4. Perform Adhesion Tests:
    • Conduct adhesion tests to evaluate the surface’s readiness for coating. Common methods include tape tests, cross-hatch tests, and pull-off tests to ensure the surface can hold the coating effectively.
  5. Determine Need for Mechanical Preparation:
    • Based on your inspection and adhesion tests, decide if mechanical preparation is necessary. This could involve sanding, grinding, or blasting to remove contaminants and create a suitable profile for powder adhesion.

Practical Tips from Joey Golliver: Joey provides practical tips, testing methods, and industry-proven techniques to help you ensure thorough surface preparation. Understanding when and how to mechanically prep a part is crucial for achieving optimal adhesion, finish quality, and durability in powder coating projects.
