Certifications: IATF 16949:2016
PPG Coatings Services’ Portland, Tennessee plant is a high-volume multi-metal electrocoat (e-coat) and powder coat service provider. The facility’s e-coat and powder-coat systems are built to operate independently, while offering the flexibility to apply a base e-coat layer beneath a powder topcoat.
Each paint line has its own 8-stage duplex pretreatment system, which provides corrosion resistance meeting all domestic and international OEM paint specifications. The plant’s specialties range from high-volume bracketry to large structural components such as roofs and trailer hitches. Label or foam application and light assembly are among the value-added services available.
With a window size of 30 x 72 inches, the Portland facility’s monorail e-coat line can accommodate parts geometries up to 108 inches in length. The 8-stage duplex pretreatment size is capable of processing a wide variety of substrates, and the e-coat line is equipped to apply a wide range of film-build thicknesses to meet an expanded range of OEM requirements.
The Portland plant’s powder coat line possesses the same flexibility as the e-coat line, including a common pretreatment chemistry, enabling it to meet virtually any OEM coating requirement. The Nordson electrostatic powder-coat booth has a window size of 28 x 72 inches, enabling it to process products up to 110 inches long.
