Military & Defense Coatings

Manufacturers serving the military and defense sectors have some of the highest standards of any industry — and for good reason. Lives literally hang in the balance depending on the reliable performance of their products. As a leading mil spec paint supplier, Rhinehart Finishing has earned a strong reputation for delivering the best-quality results for customers in the military and defense sectors. Our extensive expertise in the industry means we can deliver military coatings that protect equipment as well as the men and women in uniform who use it.

Our mil spec painting services include chemical agent resistant coating (CARC), which resists absorption of chemical agents while offering the strongest protection against corrosion and wear. Our CARC coatings are in accordance with MIL-DTL-53039 specs, which means they are free of volatile organic & inorganic hazardous air pollutants (VOHAPs & HAPs). Our rigorous processes and superior quality are why we’re proud to be certified as a TACOM-approved combat-grade powder coat applicator.

Here is a summary of the many services we provide for our customers serving the military and defense sectors:

  • Mechanical Cleaning/Pretreatment: Utilizing the most advanced manual and automated techniques, we can prepare surfaces for coating and finishing. Our zinc phosphate pretreatment system is certified by the Department of Defense and offers the highest-quality prep for surfaces before mil spec coatings are applied. This ensures that the coatings have the best possible adhesion to the components and offer optimal protection.
  • Liquid Spray Paint Services: We offer the most complete military-grade paint services in the industry, featuring environmentally friendly paint booths capable of handling part sizes up to 12’ X 3’ X 6’. Our state-of-the-art automated and manual lines can handle small, intricate parts as well as larger ones.
  • Powder Coating: We ensure parts are completely protected against the elements as well as regular wear and tear. Our status as a TACOM-approved combat-grade powder coating applicator means we offer the most advanced and high-quality powder coating services in the industry.

At Rhinehart Finishing, we never take shortcuts and use only the highest-quality defense coatings. That’s because we know how critical it is for military vehicles, weapons and protective gear to have the strongest level of protection. We bring the knowledge and expertise to help you select the military protective coating that is right for your specific application, working with you throughout the process to ensure all your requirements will be met. Contact us today to learn more about our processes and capabilities specific to the military and defense sector.
