Powder Coating

KVF Quad Corporation is the Quad Cities expert on powder coat painting. Our paint application facilities can adapt to a wide range of size, shape, quantity and special components to satisfy the complex needs of our customers. 


Abrasive Blast Finishing

Abrasive blast finishing (air blasting) cleans and removes scale, rust, marking, previous coatings or weld splatter from component surfaces by propelling media using compressed air. 


Shot Blasting

Shot blasting is an aggressive process used to generate anchor surface, remove tight mill scale, previous coatings or foundry slag, and leave components with a uniform exterior surface finish.

Vibratory Finishing

Using a variety of equipment types and sizes plus an array of media types, KVF Quad’s vibratory finishing services yield exceptional results in mass finishing customer parts. 


Ultrasonic Cleaning

In parts cleaning application, ultrasonic vibrations generate sound waves in a cleaning solution leaving parts exceptionally clean and exceeding many industry standards. 


Parts Cleaning

Parts cleaning is essential to many industrial processes as a prelude to surface finishing or to protect sensitive components. KVF Quad offers abrasive and nonabrasive cleaning options as well as a five-stage wash for our customers.


Shot Peening

Shot peening has many useful applications across a handful of industries, most notably increasing the life span of a part. This process produces a compressive residual stress layer of metal on parts such as gears, cams and camshafts, clutch springs, coil springs, connecting rods, crankshafts, gearwheels, and turbine blades.

Testing Services at KVF Quad Corporation

Many of our clients require certification or part finishing that meets industry standards. At KVF Quad, we help our clients meet required criteria in many industries, including agriculture, aerospace, automotive, government, medical, construction equipment, and more.


Thermal Paint Removal

A more effective and eco-friendly option to remove paint from parts, thermal paint removal at KVF Quad can accommodate a multitude of part types and sizes. Designed to reduce dependence on costly and dangerous chemical stripping compounds, thermal heat cleaning ovens effectively reduce all potential waste to ash. 

Other Product Services

At KVF Quad, we offer a variety of added services beyond metal finishing to relieve our customers of extra steps or hiring another company to complete minor tasks. These services are easily paired with metal finishing projects and can help create a higher quality, longer lasting product for the customer.


Laser Oxide Removal

As thermal cutting processes in the metalworking industry increases, the need to remove the oxidation produced by those processes has also increased. Laser oxide removal is a great solution for customers needing clean, quality parts.

KVF Quad: Who We Are

The KVF History

Making our home in East Moline, IL, KVF Quad Corporation has been open for business since 1976. Originally starting in Rock Island, IL, former President and Owner Mike Crotty built the company into a fully staffed professional job shop serving a customer base of 600 companies, and growing. The current ownership team continues to pursue growth through new and innovative processes and operations. Since the beginning, vibratory mass finishing served as the core of KVF Quad’s business. To continue to meet our customers’ expectations, other processes such as powder coat painting, ultrasonic cleaning, thermal paint removal, abrasive blast finishing and shot peening were added to our internal capabilities which created a market niche for KVF Quad within the agricultural, aerospace, automotive, government, medical and construction equipment industries. As KVF Quad looks to the future, we’re focused on providing exceptional service and quality to our customers, while striving to create a premier work environment for our employees.
