Superbly Protective Finishes

Donatello Doors use DuPont Axalta Performance Coatings

Our Ten Step Treatment Process:

  • SAND BLASTING

    Door components are sand blasted to clean the surface and increase adhesion of primer.

  • ZINC PRIMER

    After sand blasting, the door parts are immediately coated with a powerful, zinc rich coating. The coating forms a zinc barrier that is an industry standard for rust proofing.

  • 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.

  • AXALTA PRIMER

    After sanding once again we apply a “surfacing primer” that provides a solid base for subsequent coatings.

  • FIRST OVEN CURE

    The primed parts are allowed to air dry and then baked at a regulated temperature for 30 minutes.

  • 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.

  • COLOR COAT AXALTA

    Next we apply 2 layers of the Axalta finish color of your choice.

  • CLEARCOAT AXALTA

    Axalta clearcote is then applied for a super durable finish and even more UV protection.

  • 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.

  • LAB TESTING

    With each door goes a “Test Plate” that has the exact same process and materials applied as the door. After 24 hours this sample is subjected to rigorous testing of adhesion and hardness. A “Pencil Hardness” of 2H is the minimum standard. This will increase over the next few days to as much as 4H – the industry’s highest standard.
