E-Coat Surface Protection
Maintenance-Free Coating Inside AND Out
Montage ornamental panels and posts are actually coated both inside and outside. Every other product available in America is only coated on the outside. This is significant because major corrosion problems start from the inside. Galvanized steel framework is subjected to a multi-stage pre-treatment / wash (with zinc phosphate), followed by a duplex cathodic electrocoat system consisting of an epoxy primer which significantly increases corrosion protection. The process is completed with an acrylic topcoat which provides the protection necessary to withstand adverse weathering effects.
Immersion processes coat and cleanse both the inside and outside of the fence components, preventing corrosion and resulting in a maintenance-free, finished product able to withstand the elements.
