ISSC-Kanson Electronics commits to eco-friendly finishing system
Powder coating improves company’s products and reduces environmental impact
Online PR News – 16-October-2012 – Hohenwald, Tn – ISSC-Kanson Electronics, Inc. has expanded its powder coating system, bringing all finishing in house and committing to environmentally friendly coating processes for its steel-enclosed relays.
Until this month, some of ISSC-Kanson’s durable steel enclosures were sent out to third-party finishers, where they were coated with “zinc yellow.” This finishing process, still widely used in some industries and on everything from hitch pins to nuts and bolts, produces hexavalent chromium as a byproduct. A human carcinogen, hexavalent chromium has been linked to cancer, skin irritation and ulcers — associations most famously represented in the movie Erin Brockovich.
Committed to reducing its environmental impact, ISSC-Kanson invested in a complete powder coating system, widely regarded as one of the greenest finishing processes available. By bringing its finishing entirely in house, the company has also been able to speed up its production and increase its control over its finishing, which now makes exclusive use of high-quality Sherwin Williams coatings.
“We take tremendous pride in our finished products,” says ISSC-Kanson President Allen Filson, “and we want to do our part to minimize the amount of hexavalent chromium that is produced and disposed of in this country. Powder coating allows us to provide a more durable finish while doing the right thing. It enhances the longevity of both our products and our environment.”
