These are examples of aluminum railings that were prepped incorrectly by our competitors. As you can see, the powder did not adhere to the aluminum and flaked off after only 3 months of outdoor exposure. We stripped these railings and recoated them correctly.
This is an example of a part that was only washed for its prep. The part is cut with a laser which leaves a thin scale on all of the cut edges. This scale must be removed prior to coating otherwise any impact will cause the scale to let go as well as the powder. You can see in the first picture that once the scale starts coming off the powder will come with it. Drake Coatings removes this type of scale as well as scale left from welding by mechanical abrasion.(ie blasting) This insures that the powder will adhere to the base metal not the scale and last without falling off. You can clearly see the metallic scale on the back of the large piece in the second picture as well as the two smaller pieces above it. The two top pieces show the powder side of the flakes.
