A customer in the bike industry needed a company with the knowledge and resources to finish their bike mounts and docks to exacting specifications. At Kettle Moraine Coatings, Inc., we specialize in these types of jobs and were contracted to perform the work, which consisted of treating a variety of different sized steel parts. The largest unit measured 147" in length, 37.2" in width, and 21" in height. Our Cyclonator was utilized to carry out the washing phase, removing surface dirt and oils. Coatings were applied with the highly efficient electrostatic coating method, and the parts were also painted as required. The completed project resulted in units displaying various colors of powder, and multiple polyester finishes. A tight tolerance of ±.030" was met during processing. Quality was ensured with our adhesion testing protocol and visual inspections.

Seven units were treated for this project, completed within a one week turnaround time and shipped to the customer in Madison, Wisconsin. At Kettle Moraine we take pride in our ability to meet customer requirements, able to handle even complex and large part processing. With our developed process techniques and responsive customer service we meet critical deadlines and exceed expectations.
