Hard-Wearing, Durable Aluminum Railing Finish

Deck and Railing Solutions powder coating process results in a hard-wearing, extremely durable finish.

  • Super Durable TGIC powder
  • meets AAMA 2604 specification
  • meets AAMA 2605 specification (only available with Newlar Fluoropolymer Resin System)
  • Seal Coat dip E-CLPS non-phosphate coating provides excellent bonding properties and under-film protection

Our aluminum railing finishes meet American Architectural Manufacturers Association (AAMA) performance requirements for long-term durability of organic coatings on aluminum extrusions and panels.

5 Stage Powder Coating Pre-Treatment System

Our Process Starts Where Others Finish

  1. Stage One consists of a heated alkaline based degreaser/ cleaner to remove mixed metals, oils and contaminates prior to powder coating.
  2. Stage Two is an aerated cold water raise to remove the degreaser/ cleaner solution.
  3. Stage Three is an aerated acid based solution to etch and further clean the substrate of any contaminates and welding smoke.
  4. Stage Four is an aerated fresh water rinse to remove the degreaser and cleaning solution.
  5. Stage Five is an E-CLPS seal coat. E-CLPS is a chrome-free, non-phosphate liquid coating used to protect aluminum and zinc alloys with a clear, nearly colorless chemical Dried In Place (DIP) coating. When applied the coating has excellent paint bonding properties and affords under-film protection.

Super Durable TGIC Powders Meet or Exceed AAMA Specifications

Super Durable polyester powders have become the mainstay in the architectural / railing industry. Where standard polyester powders will provide only 2 years of gloss retention, Super Durable TGIC powder will retain greater than 50% of its original gloss for a minimum of 5 years in exposures comparable to South Florida. Our Super Durable Powders meet or exceed the 7_9 weathering parameters of the American Architectural Manufacturing Association (AAMA) 2604-2605 specifications, and We meets AAMA 2605 commercial specifications using Spraylat "Newlar" powders.
