Dip coating is yet another method of enhancing parts through a coating process. This specialized industrial coating process is used for manufacturing coated fabrics and products. To help you better understand the process, candle makers use dip coating services to make candles because it builds a thin film around the candle that holds the wax as it dries and hardens. The thin film created by the dip coating process can be peeled off once the candle wax has solidified. This method of service can be applied to the coating of industrial parts, as a layer created from dip coating can provide the necessary time for a part to mold into its intended shape. Once the solidification is complete, the part can then be used for its intended purpose. When you take into consideration flexible and loose parts, as some pose, one can imagine the difficulty of keeping the materials together during coating. However, when using dip coating services, flimsy and loose substrates are no longer a headache to coat.
Though it can be best described by a Jessup representative, which contacting one is strongly encouraged, hopefully the following will help the reader understand a little clearer how dip coating services for parts works. The part is immersed into the coating solution. When the immersion is sustained by a constant and sustained speed (no wavering or the coating will be ruined), the part remains in the solution for a long while – long enough until it is ensured that the ultimate solution fortification is achieved. When the necessary allotted time for this process is determined and has commenced, a thin layer of coating will begin to mold against the deposited part. Remember, the maintaining of a constant and unwavering speed must be accomplished during this entire process, or failure is imminent. In addition, keep in mind that the faster the speed of immersion, the thicker the coating will be; and obviously, a slower speed will generate a thinner coating.
Once the above mentioned stages are complete, it is time for drainage to occur. The excess liquid must be given enough time to drain from the part. Evaporation of the dip coating solvent from the liquid used for immersion will also occur. It is a slow and tedious process, but once the drainage is finished, you will notice the forming of the coating layer. As stated, the dip coating process for parts is a meticulous task, but a vital one, especially for parts that are weak. What you have read is a quick look into dip coating services.
