Our paint facility is equipped with a 20' wide x 50' long x 14’ high paint booth which can accommodate very large machines and fabricated structures. We also use a modern powder coating operation with a 13' x 18' x 9’ oven. Surface preparation is accomplished in the large 14’ x 42’ x 16’ grit blast room, glass bead blasting, pressure washing, or by hand, depending on your requirements.
Our painters are skilled in the application of coating systems ranging from two-part epoxies to standard shop coat primers to powder coatings. To protect the environment, HVLP (high volume low pressure) and electrostatic paint equipment and solvent recycling are used.
Many Shickel customers require special finishes. We routinely polish stainless steel to a mirror finish, galvanize steel to protect it from rusting, anodize aluminum for a durable attractive finish, and passivate stainless steel for pharmaceutical manufacturing, just to mention a few of the special finish services our customers require. Our skilled craftsmen, using specialized equipment, assure a durable finish, pleasing to the eye and in the exact color you specify.
