Whitford confirms the Donwell Company as a premier Custom Applicator in the U.S.

July 2018, Manchester, Connecticut. Whitford, makers of the world’s largest, most complete line of fluoropolymer coatings, has confirmed the Donwell Company of Manchester, Connecticut, as a member of the “Whitford Recommended Coater” (WRC) program and awarded a plaque to Tracey Sherman, President of Donwell. David Carlsen, industry expert for Whitford, states, “From the beginning, Donwell has gained experience in a wide variety of high-tech coating applications and surface preparations, earning them recognition as an industry leader.”

The Whitford Recommended Coater program recognizes custom coaters who meet certain criteria. Among them: the coater must have thorough knowledge of Whitford coatings and experience in applying them, must complete a Whitford training course held at the worldwide headquarters and must have certain quality-assurance procedures in place. Coaters in the program go through rigorous audits every two years to requalify for the program.

The Donwell Company has been providing high-performance industrial coating application services for over 50 years. Donwell is approved to apply coatings to meet many aerospace, medical, industrial and military specifications, including MIL-PRF-46010. Their versatile processing equipment accommodates parts ranging from miniature to 20 feet, from a single piece to large production runs.

Adds Donwell’s Tracey Sherman, “Donwell has been proud to offer Whitford coatings since first learning of Xylan 1010 from Dave Willis in the early ‘60s. Whitford has the largest line of specialty fluoropolymer coatings along with excellent service for custom applicators and we are proud to be a part of this program.”
