“Can you tell me the effect that the powder coating process has on the heat treatment of aluminum, specifically 6061 T-6”
“To our knowledge powder coating has absolutely no effect on heat treated aluminum. The cure temperatures are usually under 400 degrees F (typically 325 to 375 degrees F) and should not anneal the 6061 T-6 material.
Furthermore, exposure time at these temperatures is 10 to 25 minutes. The higher the temperature the lower the exposure time to cure the power coating.”
