Material Prep & Finishing

Xylan Coating_2

Finishing that meets even the most demanding requirements

No matter the complexity, Hutchinson Manufacturing (HMI) has the experience to meet your material finishing requirements.  On site testing and quality assurance check points guarantee finishing is completed to manufacturer’s specs. HMI is National Association of Corrosive Engineering  (NACE) certified, and  an approved finishing applicator for Sherwin Williams™, Diamond Vogel™, Porter™, PPG™, Carboline™, Deuce™, Whitford Xylan™ and others.

Our 15’ W x 17′ H x 60’ L blast and paint booths handle a full range of component part sizes. We utilize multiple handling methods through our booths, including a monorail, over-head crane and special rolling carts.  For the heavy weight products, we have a custom designed hydraulic transport dolly that properly levels and moves components weighting as much as 75 tons (similar to the application of moving homes).

Booth #1: Product moves through the booth manually with a 1400 lb monorail system. Paint applications include; air-assisted pump, HVLP guns and a small pressure pot system and gravity feed cup guns for smaller applications.  We are able to apply multiple coating systems ranging from zinc-rich primers,  liquid epoxies, industrial urethane to select enamels.

PTFE (Xylan™) Paint Facility: HMI is an approved Xylan™ applicator with capability of doing parts up to 1200 lbs with an working envelope of 4.5′ diameter by 4.5′ height in height.

HMI’s applied coatings are used in a vast array of products, ranging from, Nuclear Reactor, to sub-sea depths of 9,000 feet, to architectural structures at theme parks.

HMI’s QA/Documentation team and the Finishing Department provide complete paint-lot traceability to meet nuclear standards, and provide full Dry Film Thickness (DFT) reports with finished product.
