Painting

When you think of the word “paint,” what immediately comes to mind? Perhaps you would think of the earliest times when cave dwellers decorated their walls 40,000 years ago. Maybe you picture Michelangelo adorning the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel. Or perhaps you imagine Picasso and the development of the Cubist style. Today, sadly, we may think of paint as no more than a chore one does around the house.

Here at Wolkerstorfer, “paint” has a more serious tone.

Nadcap Certified to apply Paint and Dry Film Lubricants, we use various paint systems to enhance the performance of aerospace and defence components. Coatings providing improved lubricity from Dry Films or Chemical Agent Resistant Coatings (CARC) to protect our troops, Wolkerstorfer Company is certified by several OEMs and Tier 1 suppliers.

The key to optimizing these newer systems is to follow discrete pretreatment processes which may involve steps like cleaning, abrasive blasting, chem film, anodizing, phosphating, passivation, or masking even before the first coat of paint is applied.

The use of wash primer, primer, and sophisticated topcoat systems per the OEM’s specifications and manufacturer’s strict instructions ensure performance and durability.
