Painting

Coil coating allows for tight control over the paint application process. First the metal passes through a cleaning station to remove surface contaminants and oils. The metal is then pretreated, which provides protection against corrosion and creates a molecular bond between the metal and paint. OCM uses primer on most products to improve paint adhesion and to maintain control over the finish color. Top-coats are painted over the primer, with each coat baking in separate ovens to fully cure. OCM's state-of-the-art emissions control system protects the environment. Because it is applied by rollers, not sprayers, paint is never airborne, eliminating waste and pollution. Coil coated metals provide long-lasting performance. Together this makes coil coating efficient, cost-effective, and environmentally friendly. OCM offers a variety of paint systems including Kynar/PVDF, Polyester, Silicone-Modified Polyester (SMP), and Epoxy. Most colors are made in-house, which allows for custom matching, smaller batches, and shorter lead-times.
