Preheating the Aluminum Prior to Welding

Preheating aluminum prior to welding evaporates the “sweat” i.e. condensation which forms on the metal from humidity in the air. Moisture can cause the welds to be brittle and weak so preheating is important. The preheat also makes the initial section of weld stick better to the base metal.

Powder Coating the Gates

Each gate panel and sign is pre-treated with an environmentally friendly corrosion control chemical followed by 2 coats of polyester powder coat. The film thickness of powder coat is around 6-8 mils. This is 4-5 times thicker than a 2-coat paint finish.
