Painting

Painting

Everyone is familiar with “paint”. We see it every day, and for the most part it is taken for granted. At the Wolkerstorfer Company it represents a great deal more than that. Painting is a generic term for the application of different acrylics, enamels, epoxies and polyurethanes to name the more common systems. Painting represents a series of steps to ultimately enhance the performance of a part. For example, in one application aerospace paint systems are used to reduce drag in the air representing a 1% improvement in fuel efficiency lowering fuel costs by $700 million dollars a year. In the marine industry, paints that include silicone-hydrogel and biocides reducing the ability of organisms to attach themselves to the vessels resulting reduced drag, as well as protecting the physical structure of the boat from the harsh environment in the ocean. There are thousands of other examples where a paint system has improved the performance of a part or assembly.
