Linetec Facility Address Change

LinetecBldgDue to Linetec’s recent anodize facility expansion, 75th Avenue has become part of Linetec’s property and is no longer a city street.  This means our mailing address must change.

Linetec’s official mailing address is now 7500 Stewart Avenue, Wausau WI  54401.  The post office will continue to deliver mail that has our old address on it for up to 18 months and will also recognize the new address immediately.  We have updated the majority of paperwork, invoices, and our systems.

The address for the Polywood Paint facility is 7200 W Stewart, Wausau WI 54401 and the Anodize address is 7550 W. Stewart, Wausau WI 54401.  These identify the buildings but should not be used for mailing address purposes (mail will not be delivered to these locations). All mail should be sent to Linetec’s main address 7500 W Stewart Avenue, Wausau WI 54401.

Please note that there is no change to our payment remittance address.

          

Class I and Class II Anodize – What is the Difference?

Class I and Class II anodic coatings are designations created by the Aluminum Association for the purpose of codifying the specification of anodized aluminum.

Class I coating has a mil thickness of 0.7 (18 microns) or greater

Class II coating has a minimum mil thickness of 0.4 (10 microns)

Class I coating is a high performance anodic finish used primarily for exterior building products and other products that must withstand continuous outdoor exposure.

Class II coating is a commercial anodic finish recommended for interior applications or light exterior applications receiving regularly scheduled cleaning and maintenance such as storefronts.

Class I and Class II coatings should not be confused with Type I, Type II, and Type III anodic coatings as described in the authoritative anodizing standard, MIL-A-8625. Type I anodize refers to chromic acid anodizing. Type II is normal “clear” sulfuric acid anodizing. Type III is “hardcoat” using sulfuric acid or mixed chemistry electrolytes.

All Linetec anodize finishes are produced as a Class I coating, with the exception of ANO-204 Clear, which is a Class II coating. Clear anodize is available in both Class I and Class II.

Class II Anodize -McDonaldsClass II anodic coatings are recommended for interior applications or light exterior applications receiving regularly scheduled cleaning and maintenance such as storefronts and entrance ways. Class II anodize is not as durable or wear resistant as a Class I finish.

 

Adelson School 7Class I anodic coating is a high-performance finish used for exterior building structures and other products that must withstand continuous outdoor exposure. Class I anodize is more resistant to salt spray and the sea coast, and it is more durable in high traffic areas.
