Tolliver has state-of-the-art equipment and facilities to perform each aspect of the process:
Media Blasting: Before applying any polymer to an object, its exterior must be media blasted to remove any existing coating and create a uniform surface, free of corrosion. The process is very similar to sandblasting, except media blasting allows for the use of various abrasives to remove unwanted surface debris. Tolliver Powder Coating’s West Palm Beach media blasting facility can accommodate objects up to sixty feet in length.
Polymer Application: After the exterior of an object has been media blasted, our specialists pretreat the surface to ensure that it will accept the polymer uniformly. The object is then placed in one of Tolliver’s two coating facilities. For smaller jobs, or those consisting of multiple parts, we use an automated line that sprays the polymer evenly as it moves along the conveyor. Using the line establishes a smooth, balanced coating on objects up to 24 feet in length. Our other method of applying powder coating is in our batch facility, where Tolliver professionals electrostatically apply polymer using high-tech spray guns designed specifically for powder coating.
Batch Ovens: The final aspect of the powder coating process is placing the treated object in a batch oven. Heating allows the polymer to fuse properly to the exterior surface, solidifying the bond between particles and curing the powder coating.
