FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
AR’s powder coatings of parts include masking and plugging threaded holes. Custom masking is extra. All parts should be clean of any grease, rubber, gaskets, or plastic, and all grease fittings should be removed. Parts with grease, sludge, or oil will be charged a de-greasing fee. AR is not responsible for controlling “out gassing” of parts, a problem of internal gasses within a casting which when heated up can possibly come to the surface creating tiny pin holes. Cast aluminum, cast iron, wheels and parts may experience out-gassing and/or bubbling in the finished powder coating. AR will take every precaution to avoid out-gassing, however, we cannot guarantee that out-gassing will not occur in porous castings. Warranty Information: AR warrants against flaking & peeling only on new items for one year from date on sales slip. AR warrants against flaking & peeling only on used parts for six months from date on sales slip. AR assumes no responsibility for outside elements or damage.
AR includes protecting the parts with wrapping for the typical one two part runs. However for large quantities of parts it is recommended that you speak to one of our estimators for costs of professional packaging.
Yes we offer pickup and delivery. AR has trucks ranging from 13′, 16′ and 20′ flat beds capable of pick up and delivery of any size part.
Powder coating has less expense in raw materials because there are no solvents that are needed to achieve the coatings. Also because the powder is electrostatically applied, more powder is attracted to the part, meaning less paint on the floor. Transfer efficiency also plays a roll in coatings. All of our hooks used for suspending the parts are stripped and old coatings are burned off for excellent grounding of the parts.
