LIQUID PAINT FOR OEM METAL PARTS, MACHINERY, AND ASSEMBLED COMPONENTS
Sub Source offers a range of liquid paint options for metal part finishing, including Alkyd, Epoxy, and Polyurethane coatings, as well as C.A.R.C. and MIL-SPEC paints, mainly for defense equipment applications. Liquid paint is applied with a spray gun after the metal surface is first prepared so the coating will properly adhere. Sub Source's metal prep services include cleaning and degreasing, sandblasting, pre-treatment, and priming, to help assure optimal results.
A brief overview of each liquid paint type available from Sub Source, along with its specific advantages follows.
ALKYD LIQUID PAINT
Alkyd liquid paints are specially formulated coatings that protect metal parts from corrosion, wear and tear, abrasion, and chemical damage. These coatings are usually applied by spraying or dipping and are heat-resistant, making them suitable for parts that are exposed to high temperatures. The composition of alkyds includes manufactured resins and natural drying oils, while urethane alkyd coatings consist of natural drying oils and isocyanate reactors, creating a durable film that can be used in food processing or to withstand outdoor conditions, as well as for demanding industrial applications.
THE ADVANTAGES OF AKLYD COATINGS
1. Corrosion Protection: Alkyd coating provides an additional layer of protection against corrosion, helping to extend the life of metal parts.
2. Aesthetic Appeal: Alkyd coating provides a smooth, glossy finish that can improve the appearance of metal parts and make them stand out.
3. Increased Durability: Alkyd coating can help protect metal parts from wear and tear, making them more resistant to damage and increasing their lifespan.
4. Improved Performance: Applying an Alkyd coating can improve the performance of metal parts, making them more efficient and reliable.
5. Cost-Effective: Alkyd coating is generally more cost-effective than other forms of metal finishing, making it a great option for businesses on a budget.
EPOXY LIQUID PAINT
Epoxy paint is a type of coating that is applied to metal surfaces to provide a protective finish and improve the appearance of the metal. It is typically made of two parts, an epoxy resin, and a hardener. When these two parts are mixed together, a chemical reaction occurs that causes the epoxy to cure and form a hard, durable coating. Epoxy coatings can be used to protect metal surfaces from corrosion, abrasion, UV rays, and chemical exposure. These liquid paints are generally easier to apply than powder coating and provide a smoother, more even finish.
THE ADVANTAGES OF EPOXY COATINGS
1. Durability: Epoxy coatings are extremely durable and are resistant to corrosion, abrasion, and chemicals.
2. Aesthetics: Epoxy coatings can be applied in various colors and textures, providing a smooth and attractive finish.
3. Protection: Epoxy coatings provide a protective barrier against the elements and help prevent the formation of rust and other corrosion.
4. Low Maintenance: Epoxy coatings do not require frequent maintenance and are easy to clean.
POLYURETHANE LIQUID PAINT
Polyurethane paint is a type of protective coating for metal parts. It is made up of a mixture of polyurethane resin and a catalyst and is applied as a liquid and then cured to a hard, durable finish. It's often used to protect metal surfaces from corrosion, scratches, and other forms of wear and tear. It can also be used to enhance the appearance of metal parts, as it comes in a variety of colors and finishes.
THE ADVANTAGES OF POLYURETHANE COATINGS
1. Excellent Durability: Polyurethane coatings are much more durable than other types of coatings. They are able to withstand extreme temperatures, chemicals, and abrasion, making them an ideal choice for metal parts that will be exposed to harsh conditions.
2. Excellent Adhesion: The strong adhesion of polyurethane coatings ensures that they will remain securely attached to the metal surface. This makes the coating less likely to chip, crack, or peel off.
3. High Gloss Finish: Polyurethane coatings can be applied to create a glossy finish, helping to protect metal parts from corrosion and other forms of damage.
4. Cost-Effective: Polyurethane coatings are very cost-effective to use. They are available in large quantities, which helps to lower the cost per unit.
5. Versatility: Polyurethane coatings can be applied to a variety of different surfaces, including wood and metal. This makes them a great choice for a variety of applications.
OTHER SPECIALTY COATINGS FROM SUB SOURCE
CARC COATING FOR MILITARY APPLICATIONS
C.A.R.C. (Chemical Agent Resistant Coating) is a type of coating used to provide protection against chemical agents such as mustard gas, nerve gases, and blister agents. It is usually applied to military vehicles, equipment, and personnel. C.A.R.C. coatings are designed to resist the effects of chemical agents and protect the underlying surface from corrosion. This type of coating provides excellent protection against a wide range of chemical agents, and is also resistant to water, heat, and ultraviolet radiation. C.A.R.C. coatings are highly effective, durable, and cost-effective, making them an ideal choice for military applications.
MIL-SPEC paints are industrial-grade, high-performance coatings designed for use in military and other extreme environments. They are used to protect surfaces from corrosion, wear, and other environmental hazards. MIL-SPEC paints are designed to adhere to a variety of surfaces including wood, metal, and plastic, and provide a durable finish. They are also designed to meet a variety of military specifications for performance in extreme conditions.
