Superbly Protective Finishes
Donatello Doors use DuPont Axalta Performance Coatings
Our Ten Step Treatment Process:
Door components are sand blasted to clean the surface and increase adhesion of 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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
