Paint Specifications

Larsen uses only high quality powder in our operation. We will not apply lower quality or recycled, potentially defective powder to your parts.

Our powder application booth is located inside a clean, separated environment, ensuring that no outside dirt or debris enters the application site. Any waste powder is contained in a downdraft system and collected outside of the building to maintain a clean air environment.

Our experienced powder paint team can accommodate customer provided paint specifications, or assist in selecting the best paint for the needed application, color, texture, or performance of the part. We utilize various powder vendors, and therefore can custom order powder in thousands of colors, textures, and finishes.

Wash System Specifications

Larsen’s Powder Paint Division has a 5 stage wash system that also includes an additional virgin R.O. rinse if required. Our wash is Phosphate-free, and the chemicals used in our wash process are the most eco-friendly options available in the industry today.

  1. Spray Clean NP5000 is strong alkaline product designed as an all purpose cleaner. It is highly effective at removing most soils associated with metal fabrication. It is designed to help control foam where saponification of soils is a problem.
  2. R.O. Rinse
  3. Americo AMB-5147 is an advanced technology conversion coating product that operates at ambient temperature. It is designed to replace iron phosphate in any type of painting operation. Americo AMB-5147 will produce a thin, tightly packed, amorphous coating on the substrate surface which yields excellent corrosion protection when used in conjunction with a quality paint system.
