Functional Coating Services for EV Batteries and More
Maas Brothers Powder Coating, located in the San Francisco Bay Area, offers metal coating services for EV batteries using its state-of-the-art automated powder coating system and functional powder coating expertise. This includes HiPot testing.
Functional Metal Coating Services for Batteries
EV batteries typically rely on functional powder coating solutions to address such critical fire protection needs as dispersing fire and providing flame retardant insulation, as well as other functional goals such as temperature management, corrosion protection, impact protection and more.
Maas Brothers’ customized automated powder coating system is engineered for agility and includes multiple computer-controlled powder coating booths as well as state-of-the-art in-line infrared (IR) pre-gelling ovens, among other features.
A typical powder coater with a single coat system can’t cost-effectively achieve the coatings many EV batteries require. This is because there is a limited amount of sprayed powder that will electro-statically adhere to any given metal part prior to curing.
Maas Brothers doesn’t have that limitation. Our advanced powder coating system allows us to deliver a wide variety of coating solutions for batteries, including multiple-coat requirements, with a single cost- and time-saving pass.
What will your project require? Once we understand your project goals, we will determine which of the many options built into our system will need to be deployed to achieve your needs.

High Function Metal Powder Coating Services: Thicker Coat Needs
On our automated line, we handle thicker powder coating needs that require two coats by deploying multiple powder coating booths in combination with our strategically placed IR oven technology.
We use our first IR oven to pre-gel the first coat of powder then move those half-cured parts to the next powder coating booth, where we can now successfully apply a second coat. Then the parts move along our line to the convection oven for final curing.
Our second IR oven, located at the mouth of our convection curing oven, has varied uses that may or may not be applicable to your batteries coating project. It is, though, particularly useful for increasing throughput while eliminating powder cross-contamination risk when parts with different powder colors are placed near one another on the line — something we often deploy with our quick color change capabilities.
Regardless of the system options needed for your project, one thing remains the same: our automated line never stops. The result? We provide the coatings your battery project requires for optimal functional performance with a single pass on our system. That saves you time and money.
