Painting & Coating

Since the foundation of our facility, Al-Esnad has been, along with designing, manufacturing, and refurbishing parts, coating and painting vehicles and parts from its own in-house paint booth. The booth is comprised of an automatic conveyor system, an oven for baking the fresh paint, filters, and a flash-off unit.

The booth is designed to handle pieces up to 2 meters long, and is used for several types of coating, including:

  • Zinc-nickel and cadmium for steel parts
  • Hard anodizing and chromate coating for aluminum parts
  • Epoxy / polyurethane-based CARC (Chemical Agent Resistant Coating) paint for wet coating

Al-Esnad’s vehicle painting booth (pictured) measures 14 m in length and 6 m in height, and comes with state -of-the-art filtering and exhaust systems.

Al-Esnad’s coating lines are fully certified and can use multiple formulas for different surfaces, including:

  • Alodine Coating for aluminum parts – MIL-DTL-5541
