We offer a complete suite of Nadcap and AS9100 approved painting and spray coating services across the United States.
Valence offers a highly diversified set of painting services, including bond primer, fuel tank, high impact, primer, dry lube and topcoat. These state of the art high capacity paint capabilities are integrated with our NDT, shot peen, and chemical process offerings. With unique booth and oven capacity, we are able to paint parts up to 30’ in length.
We are the industry leader in masking and painting capability for complicated programs such as the F-35 Joint Strike Fighter, and hold unique bond primer and package capabilities for space components and helicopter blades. Valence painters are extremely skilled with many with over 30 years of experience.
Primer, also known as undercoat, is the preparatory coating that can be used to enhance the bond strength of a topcoat and/or improve the corrosion resistance of a part.
Fuel Tank Coating
Fuel tank coating is a specialty coating applied to the interior of aircraft fuel tanks that protects against corrosion from fuel contaminants.
Adhesive Bond Primer
Adhesive bond primer is primer used for particularly hard to bond to applications, often used in combination with anodize or plating processes. Bond primers can also be used to enhance the emissivity characteristics of a part.
Topcoat is the final coating on a part often used for cosmetic purposes. However, it often has application specific properties, such as reflectivity, conductivity etc.
Anti-Chafe topcoats are specific coatings that are primarily used on surfaces where abrasion resistance, low friction and impact resistance are required to reduce chafing and wear.
Dry Film Lube
Dry film lube is a dry lubricant coating that reduces friction on surfaces sliding against each other.
Sol-Gel is a process of creating metal oxides when applied to a part using metal alkoxides.
Zinc spray, or zinc chromate spray is a primer with corrosion inhibiting properties, commonly used on aluminum aircraft or spacecraft components.
Valence uses CATIA software to create precision digital masking templates that improve the consistency and the ability to control dimensional tolerances of masking points.
Valence performs all of these services to the highest degree of care, with approvals for most prime and military specifications. View our specs here.
