MOREHEAD CITY, N.C. - Jan. 8, 2019 - PRLog -- Master Aluminum Adds In-House Powder Coating Oven and Spray Booth

In November 2017, we began installation of our new custom-made powder coating oven and spray booth. By April 2018 we were fully operational.  Additionally, we have hired a powder coating applicator with more than 15 years' experience painting shutters to ensure the highest quality results.

Powder coating a louvered product such as aluminum shutters is certainly a challenging product to paint.  It takes years of experience to be able to properly apply the powder between the blades and in corners without getting excessive powder on the leading edges of the blades.  Only experienced applicators can recognize inconsistencies and quickly solve issues inherent in the manufacturing process, especially with intricate products such as shutters.

We have also purchased two new GEMA Optiflex 2B spray guns. These are state of the art manual guns uniquely suited for painting our custom orders, large or small.

Having the powder coating process in house provides many advantages to our clients:

A.      Quality Control - Shutters are considered extremely difficult to powder coat given the number of leading edges and small surface areas. However, with our new in-house capabilities, we are able to control the uniformity of the powder application through the following:

a.       Thickness of the powder applied is monitored with a digital mil gauge.

b.       Inconsistencies can be addressed immediately and repainted if necessary.

c.       Powder is applied by an experienced professional.

B.      Manufacturing – By no longer outsourcing the powder coating process, the turnaround time of orders is greatly improved by not having to wait extra days or weeks due to painting delays at the off-site facility before shutters are shipped.  If necessary, we can now expedite orders in just a few days.

C.      Shipping - In general, we can now assign accurate shipping dates to orders when they are placed, enabling clients to schedule installations well in advance.

D.      Cost – With lower expenses related to the packing, shipping and powder coating at an off-site facility, we are able to pass those savings on to our clients while maintaining our commitment to product excellence.

Master Aluminum's Bahama and Colonial Shutters are unique in that each step of the process is completely under our control so that the product you receive meets our high standards.
