Custom Colors and Coatings for Motorcycle Parts and Frames

Carma Coatings has been providing custom coatings with a high-end finish for motorcycle parts and race car frames from many years. Many large powder coaters don’t want to pursue these types of applications because of the volume of parts is low and they are not setup for custom applications. However, Carma’s facility and skilled operators are able to accommodate any type of motorcycle parts or race car frames and small or individual production runs are part of the overall service program.

Additionally, the focus is on custom powder and painting; not just industrial coatings for these applications. The company maintains a high-end finishing operation, complete with endless custom color choices to produce a “show quality” custom finish. The company maintains a library of books and color samples from an extensive network of vendors. Customers are able to go through the choices with a Carma custom coating expert for guidance and advice on how to achieve the custom look they want for their project. Carma is able to buy colors in small quantities for cost effective, small or individual part, production runs.
Carma is able to process parts to get them ready for the coating process. This may involve:
• Blasting
• Grinding
• Polishing
• Finishing a welded product

Almost any size part or car frame can be accommodated in the expansive facility.

Each major processing section is:
40 Ft. Length x 12Ft. Wide x 12Ft. High
Blasting Booth  |  Oven  |  Paint Booths

The facility is able to handle many different material types including steel, aluminum, and stainless steel parts. For added protection to steel parts and aluminum, a pre-treatment process is used prior to applying primer to the metal. This gives added protection to steel for the powder to stick and stay adhered.

The parts and frames are processed in a manual operation through paint and powder sections and the operators are able to do candy powders and paints. Additionally, the operators are able to conduct multi-steps in powdering and “multi-powdering” in different colors on the same part, and apply a clear powder coat for a final finish.
