AQUENCE® COATING

Our Aquence® coating applies a strong protective coating to metal surfaces, doubling the rust resistance of your parts compared to powder coating alone.

The coating is applied through autodeposition using a series of tanks to clean and coat the steel, resulting in an even application, even in difficult to reach locations of the surface.

Autodeposition coatings provide exceptional performance due to direct bonding of the coating, delivering improved finish appearance and superior corrosion resistance. In addition, it provides outstanding thermal stability.

ENVIRONMENTAL BENEFITS OF AQUENCE® COATING
  • Little or no volatile organic compounds
  • No electricity needed to drive the reaction
  • No irritating solvent fumes or oven exhaust
  • Less risk of worker exposure to process
  • Designed to neutralize and pH balance all water products after use
  • No toxic heavy metals (No lead, chrome, zinc, or cadmium added to the coating)

POWDER
COATING

WS Steel uses a batch system with four booths to Powder Coat. We use a durable line of powder coatings that are extremely resistant to all weather conditions and are an ideal solution to a multitude of exterior applications. They are available in a wide range of colors and textures and are environmentally friendly, emitting no harmful VOC’s.

ADVANTAGES OF POWDER COATING
  • Environmentally friendly
  • Available in a wide range of colors and textures
  • Outstanding corrosion protection and UV durability
  • Excellent mechanical properties and flexibility
  • Excellent adhesion, humidity resistance and water immersion resistance

If you prefer to wet paint your product, we can do that too.

SHOT
& SAND BLASTING

Our shot blasting booth is ideal for large projects while our wheel blast system is designed for small parts that require profiling.

WET COAT PAINTING

Our wet coat painting technology provides a high quality finish – backed by our finish coat analysis capability.

PRECISION ASSEMBLY

WS Steel assembles your products in-house and delivers the finished product to your door, using our own fleet of trucks. Because every step of the process is done by WS Steel, you can be confident your product will be the best quality product in the market, delivered on time, to your specifications.
