“For us here at our location, we do powder coating on aluminum and steel products. Powder coating is a free-flowing dry powder. Unlike liquid paint, it’s applied electrostatically and cured under heat. So, the thicker the metal is, the longer it takes to cure, the longer of a process it becomes.” – Brandon Kothmann, AZZ South Garland Powder Facility General Manager
“This (NuZinc, LLC) acquisition adds value and expands our scope of services for customers throughout North America." – Michael Doucet, AZZ Surface Technologies Senior Vice President
