ICON Shelter Systems, Inc. offers the best, most durable finish in the industry. The way we figure, it’s easier to produce a benchmark product than it is to justify cutting corners.
Having worked in the shelter industry for up to 15 years at other manufacturers, the owners of ICON Shelter Systems, Inc. have heard enough complaints from customers who received shelters with inferior finishes. No matter how much design savvy and expertise is put into the fabrication of your steel structure, it all comes to nothing if the finish doesn't hold up to the elements. Therefore, the standard steel frame finish for all ICON shelters is a TGIC powder coat over a durable electro-coat epoxy primer.
1The steel shall be shot-blasted to the specification of SSPC-SP10 (shot-blasted to near white condition), this will remove all oil residue, mill scale, weld spatter and slag.
2The steel is washed and zinc phosphated in an eight stage electro deposition (E-coat) pretreatment process.
3It is immersed in an electro-statically applied liquid epoxy and coated to a uniform 0.7-0.9 mils. This E-coat totally encapsulates the part, preventing rusting.
4A double coat of TGIC polyester powder is applied, one coat of color and one clear coating for a final finish that is 8-12 mils thick.
5All materials shall be inspected to meet 100% coating, proper cure, film thickness and impact resistance.
In highly corrosive environments, ICON recommends that the steel frame receive a hot-dipped zinc galvanizing prior to finish. While this may provide a less than smooth finish, the galvanizing will provide added protection against corrosion in coastal areas where salt spray is in the air.
