Coat large quantities of nuts, bolts, screws, fasteners and other hardware with anti-corrosion protection.

Dip-spin coating is a superior anti-corrosion coating and protection process for many applications. This is especially true for small parts with hard-to-reach areas that require exacting specifications for density, corrosion resistance, dry lube, and torque tension. For many applications—such as nuts, bolts, screws, fasteners, clips, and small hardware dip-spin is not only the most precise coating solution, it’s also the most economical.

What is Dip-Spin Coating?

With the dip-spin process, parts are placed in a wire-mesh basket and submerged into a coating solution. After a specified immersion time, the coating container drops and the basket is spun to remove the excess coating. The basket then dumps the parts onto a vibrating tray where they are evenly distributed for curing.

To achieve exact specifications, several variables can be adjusted, including type of coating, temperature and viscosity of the coating, immersion time, spin direction, velocities, and the cure method. Because the dip-spin typically achieves a 98% transfer efficiency or better, the process also minimizes the cost of both coating material and waste disposal.

Key Advantages of Dip-Spin Coating

  • Provides complete coverage of hard-to-reach areas
  • Eliminates recess and thread fill that occurs with other systems
  • Avoids hydrogen embrittlement associated with zinc electroplating
  • Offers high resistance to chemical and galvanic/bi-metal corrosion
  • Provides dry lube for consistent torque tension values
  • Meets current and future environmental regulations
  • Minimizes cost due to wasted material (98% or better transfer efficiency)
  • Economical method for bulk processing small parts
