Superbly Protective Finishes

Donatello Doors use DuPont Axalta Performance Coatings


Our Nine Step Treatment Process:
1 Sand Blasting Door components are sand blasted to clean the surface and increase adhesion of primer.
2 ZINC PRIMER After sand blasting, the door parts are sanded to a smooth finish and immediately coated with a powerful, zinc rich coating. The coating forms a zinc barrier that is an industry standard for rust proofing.
3 SURFACE BLENDING Our TIG welded construction causes minimal distortion to joints so only a small amount of filler is required to blend surfaces to a completely even level.
4 AXALTA PRIMER After sanding once again we apply a "surfacing primer" that provides a solid base for subsequent coatings.
5 FIRST OVEN CURE The primed parts are allowed to air dry and then baked at a regulated temperature for 30 minutes.
6 BASE COAT AXALTA After a further sanding we apply 3 layers of the base color coat which gives an even color and adds UV protection.
7 COLOR COAT AXALTA Next apply 2 layers of the Axalta finish color of your choice.
8 CLEARCOAT AXALTA Axalta clearcote is then applied for a super durable finish and even more UV protection.
9 FINAL OVEN CURE The parts go back in the oven for a third baking at a regulated temperature for 30 minutes. This integrates all layers together to give "hard as nails" protection.
