Dip painting



2002

We are having our thesis as a requirement for us graduating students. I would like to ask for your assistance regarding dip painting of metals. Do you have any idea on any employing the process. We would like to request for a flowchart for the process if there is any.

Thank you very much.

Whether you paint with a brush or by spraying or by dipping, it's a single step. But I think what you may be alluding to is that when metals are painted industrially, as opposed to being painted by an amateur, you start out with bare metal which is not a good surface to paint onto. So steel parts are often iron phosphatized or zinc phosphatized, and aluminum parts chromate conversion coated, before painting.Another thing you may be alluding to is electrophoretic painting, which is a process wherein the article to be coated is electrified so as to cause electrically driven reactions which convert the soluble materials in the dip tank into an electrically resistive coating.
