The Brown Jordan Advantage
Proprietary Multi-step Powder Coat Technique
Each piece of Brown Jordan aluminum furniture undergoes a rigorous finishing treatment that results in a beautiful, lasting piece of furniture.
JEWEL LIKE WELDING. Assembled frames are prepared for painting via a meticulous process in which welded joints are ground to achieve uniform dimension and the basis of a final, aesthetically pleasing appearance. Each frame is then sanded, buffed, and polished to achieve a smooth surface finish, allowing for better adhesion of the final powder coat.
FIVE-STAGE PRE-TREATMENT. Each frame is processed in a special pretreatment wash system with the purpose of removing any particles remaining from the buffing and polishing process as well as any remaining oil residue from fabrication while preparing the metal for the paint process. Untreated aluminum is a porous material with naturally occurring microscopic fissures and clefts. The pretreatment process is a five step application of a detergent wash, clean rinse, special solvent metal preparation bath for superior paint adhesion, and two additional rinse processes to ensure exceptional cleanliness. Clean frames are then heat dried to evacuate any liquid from within the frame.
HYBRID BASE COAT PRIMER SEALANT. Hybrid primer sealant is an epoxy / polyester blend that prepares the frame to receive its finish coat. The epoxy acts a superior bonding agent that is specially formulated to adhere to metal. During the final cure, the epoxy will not reflow, resulting in a harder topcoat surface that protects the metal from corrosion.
The polyester does reflow: while the epoxy grabs the metal, the polyester grabs the top powder coat. The outcome is an advanced, integrated bond that results in superior resistance to paint delamination while allowing for improved color and gloss retention.
The primer coat alone, even before application of the final powder coat, achieves superior UV and salt spray resistance far exceeding industry standards.
POWDER COATING. The Ultra Fuse™ powder coat final finish is applied with an electrostatic technique that creates a complete and uniform coating on all areas of the frame, including the bends and corners. The result is an attractive, durable, high-quality finish that will not flake, peel, or blister.
