Dip coatings are normal used in the industry to protect the surface of objects and quickly apply additional texturing, non-stick coatings, or corrosive-resistant coatings to a variety of materials. Construction, metal working, and the automotive industry all use dip coating. There are specifically three dip coating methods-dip painting, glass coating, and metal coatings. All three offer additional protection on an object while bonding to the surface. They also prevent the coating from wearing off in the normal weathering and usage conditions.
Dip painting is fast and effective at bonding the paint with the base item. With this style, we also see the elimination for the need of spray nozzles. No brushes or manual labor is needed either. Objects are dipped into paint and it is as simple as that. Sometimes the paint is heated to help the paint bond better with the base object. We see this style in coating tools, gloves, metal, and a variety of other materials. We see these materials in both industrial and household uses.
Similarly, metal coatings are applied in the same way as dip painting coatings. A base metal is dipped in chemical baths to prepare it for the coating. Chemicals activate different particles in the metal and help the coating bond better with the base metal. We often see metal coating used to galvanize metal. Additional uses are another coating that won’t come off from washing, weathering, or normal use.
Dip coatings are also applied to glass. Some of the main coatings applied to glass are window tinting and other UV protective coatings that eliminate the passage of UV rays through the glass. Other glass coatings are used to keep the glass from shattering if the glass breaks. We see dipped glass coatings used in the construction of commercial and residential properties. They are also prevalent in the automotive industry and household use. Some common uses are in the construction of glass tables or other furniture.
