The process

 

As each piece is brought in, they are inspected and logged with the customer present. After all options are discussed, color choice is made, quote is agreed on, we then move on to preparation. Paint or original powder coating is chemically stripped and substrate is brought down to bare metal. Any rust found is treated with a neutralizer. Once your piece is stripped and rust is treated, the part is secured to a rolling rack and goes in the oven for what is called outgassing. To outgas a piece, the oven temperature is set 50 degrees above the set cure temperature, in upwards of 450 degrees, and will remain in the oven for at least one hour, or until all impurities are forced out and cooked off. The part is then blasted, removing all the impurities that were just cooked out and also gives it a profile for better adhesion. This ensures the piece is perfectly clean, inside and out and ready for powder.

Powder is applied, much in the same fashion as paint, with a container of powder delivered with air. The main difference is that the powder leaves the gun with a positive charge, as high as one hundred thousand volts. With this charge, the powder is attracted to the grounded part. Once coated, the part is placed back into the oven for the curing process. Once the cure schedule is reached, the part is removed and allowed to cool. Once cooled, the part is done and ready to be put back into use.

Colossians 3:22-25

 

22-25 Servants, do what you’re told by your earthly masters. And don’t just do the minimum that will get you by. Do your best. Work from the heart for your real Master, for God, confident that you’ll get paid in full when you come into your inheritance. Keep in mind always that the ultimate Master you’re serving is Christ. The sullen servant who does shoddy work will be held responsible. Being a follower of Jesus doesn’t cover up bad work.
