US Architectural Lighting/Sun Valley Lighting's powder coating features a multi-step finishing process using state of the art equipment and application procedures to produce a durable, weather resistant finish to enhance the appearance of our product both at its initial installation and for years to come. Exterior metal is first shot blasted to a "near white" surface removing all rust, dirt, grease and oil.In addition to thoroughly cleaning, this procedure etches the metal surface for maximum paint adhesion.
After manually "wiping dry" the shot blast grit, the metal then receives an electrostatically applied powder coating formulated from thermo set polyester colorfast resins.
Finally the metal moves through a sixty-five foot baking oven heated to 410º for 15 - 20 minutes depending on the metal type and wall thickness. This heat fusion process permanently bonds the UV protected polyester resins to the metal providing a durable, weather resistant finish.
