H&W Global is proud to be one of the few firms in our region to be a Certified Applicator of Chemical Agent Resistant Coating (CARC) painting services for military clients.
HW Global CARC Painting is a precisely controlled process, applied with a series of proven process-control inspections. Two- and three-component CARC paint systems (e.g. epoxy or polyester-based) are available.
Chemical Agent Resistant Coating (CARC) painting is a chemical-resistant, protective metal coating, most often used on parts manufactured for the military, but also specified in certain aerospace, medical, nuclear and industrial applications.
For example when a tactical vehicle is exposed to chemical or biological agents, it must be decontaminated, often with highly corrosive cleaning agents. The metal parts of the vehicle must be able to withstand chemical or biological agents as well as repeated decontaminations. CARC Painting provides this protection, and at the same time it reduces the IR (Infra Red) profile of the vehicle.
H&W’s industrial CARC services include the following steps: racking, cleaning, painting, sealing, unracking and packaging. Each can be customized for your specific metal and desired coating type.
H&W Global offers custom masking for commercial and industrial parts during the painting, powder coating, and some chemical processes. The goal is to cover the metal so as to “mask” areas that need to remain uncoated. H&W Global has extensive experience in masking and plugging parts to ensure that specific areas are plated or painted according to our customer’s unique specifications.
Masking and plugging is an important step in the coatings process, for both quality control and the accuracy of the area being coated. At H&W Global, we have extensive masking capabilities and keep a large stock of standard masking materials and plugging types and configurations on hand. We utilize a vinyl cutter when designing custom masks for those parts that require something out of the ordinary.
Graphics may be applied to metal finishings and coatings for military applications, as well as for industrial parts and components.
H&W Global offers a variety of custom printing and marking applications for metal parts and components. This includes stenciling, silk screening, part marking, ink filling, and etching, on a variety of substrates.
Depending on our customer’s unique needs, our screen printing can be applied effectively to any surface type, whether it is a flat, curved, or irregular-shaped surface. We utilize a vinyl cutter for cutting stencils. We also offer marking of parts and components using stamps and a variety of customized inks in enamel or epoxy. H&W Global carefully selects the best ink to use based on our customer’s specific graphics application requirements.
Our threaded inserts (or screw thread inserts) are wire thread coils that offer stronger, steel like performance on threads, especially on softer metals that have issues with maintaining their threading.
Threaded inserts, such as Heli-Coil®, can be quoted and installed upon request.
H&W offers custom packaging services for all our finished parts and components. We can meet your shipping requirements regarding both time and budget. We would be happy to provide a custom packing quote.
