Surface preparation is an important and often-overlooked step in a finishing process. Obtaining and maintaining adequate surface profile, chemistry, and cleanliness is necessary for quality coating.
From cabinet washers and ultrasonic diptanks to completely automated conveyorized multi-stage wash units, we are able to offer a cleaning solution that will work for your process.
Blasting and abrasive deburring are often necessary to provide an appropriate surface for a finishing process. We offer offline batch blasting and deburring equipment as well as the ability to integrate it into your process.
The cleaning, degreasing, and preparation of parts can greatly impact the economic efficiency of a process if the effluent is not handled intelligently. We offer solutions to filter, treat, and recycle wash water and various chemistries in order minimize material consumption, environmental impact, and disposal costs.
As customers demand better performance, consistency, and quality, they also demand better efficiency, flexibility, and economy out of their liquid application equipment.
Conventional, airless, airless air-assist, manual, automatic, HVLP, LVMP, etc. We partner with the best finishing companies in the industrial and automotive industries.
Selecting the correct pump for a given application can minimize energy usage and downtime due to maintenance and repair.
2K metering and dispense equipment to accommodate a wide variety of materials including metallics, acid catalysts, and water-based coatings.
Electrostatic equipment greatly reduces waste by applying an electrical charge during atomization significantly increasing transfer efficiency.
Hoses, gauges, regulators, liners, valves, connections, and many other essential finishing accessories.
Powder coating is a clean process that provides an attractive, durable, and high-quality finish. The coating is applied as a free-flowing dry powder and is cured by heat in order to create a hard finish.
Manual powder application equipment suitable for small batch coating all the way to inline continuous systems.
Powder applicators can be mounted on reciprocators or robots to provide precise and reliable finishes.
ICAFe sells the full line of IFS Coatings powder coatings. IFS produces coatings available in epoxies, hybrids, polyesters, TGIC’s, polyurethanes, fluoropolymers and acrylic hybrids. We warehouse many common powders in our Waukesha location in a climate-controlled room.
Adhesives can be dispensed in a continuous bead or as dots using automation equipment and manual hose-fed handgun system.
Virtually every product assembled requires bonding or sealing at some stage of the process. Graco offers manual and automated technologies for single-component and two-component bonding and sealing for a broad array of products, markets and end-usess.

ICAFe Companies partner with Global Finishing Solutions and other suppliers to design customized blast booths, wash booths, paint booths, and ovens.
A proper blast booth can be designed and engineered for your application—whatever your budget—from a fully-equipped blast room with recovery and dust collection—to a simple sweep-in recovery system.
Wash booths can be designed for manual wand and automatic spray and accommodate many conveyor types. They are often partnered with wastewater recycle systems to achieve zero liquid discharge.
Paint and powder booths provide a clean space for coating applications. It is necessary for a booth to provide adequate air flow, dust collection, and lighting to achieve a high quality paint job.
Continuous and batch process ovens with uniform air flow and temperature gradients ensure the coating cures evenly.
Air replacement systems replace contaminated air exhausted from industrial and commercial buildings or spray booths, with fresh, heated outdoor air, maintaining a constant leaving-air temperature regardless of the incoming, outdoor-air temperature.
ICAFe Companies warehouse parts, consumables, and coatings in several locations in the United States and Mexico.
ICAFe Companies have a well-stocked and cataloged parts department to get parts shipped to your location quickly. We have the ability to dropship straight from many of our manufacturers or ship from one of our eight locations in the United States and Mexico. Our team will get you the parts you need.
High quality industrial liquid coatings from Northern Coatings and National Coatings. Durable, dependable, and beautiful powder coatings from IFS Coatings and Polychem Coatings.
We carry and stock a wide selection of overspray filters and paint arrestors providing cutting edge filtration technology.
