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.|
