To provide our customers with a painted product that exceeds their corrosion performance requirements, F&P Mfg., Inc. operates an electrodeposition (e-coat) paint system. The system consists of a zinc phosphate pretreatment line and a lead free paint bath.
Besides superior corrosion performance, e-coat also provides a uniform coating with excellent surface appearance, low paint wastage, and low VOC (volatile organic compound) emissions.
Our system’s corrosion performance is validated through the use of Salt Bath Testing (SBT), Salt Spray Testing (SST), and Cyclic Corrosion Testing (CCT).
After painting, several error proofing methodologies, including a laser based vision system, are used to ensure that the parts are correctly identified to prevent labeling errors and delivery problems at our customers.
F&P has been recognized as a benchmark supplier in labeling error prevention.
