The article focuses on the investment of Godwin Manufacturing in a zinc coating process using the Envirocron zinc powder primer from PPG. The coating process is expected to triple the life of the truck bodies. The bodies are loaded and grounded to the powder line before going through a power wash and degrease to remove oils as part of the process. According to owner Pat Goodwin Sr., another enhancement to the durability and life of the paint is the ability of the firm to add a liquefied rubber undercoat on top of the powder/zinc paint.
