Powder Coating

Powder coating colours

What Is Powder Coating? Powder coating is an advanced method of applying a decorative and protective finish to a wide range of materials and products that are used by both industries and consumers.The powder coating process uses a solvent free dry mix of plastic resins, pigments and fillers that melt and fuse together when heated. The solid particles of coating are electrostatically charged in a spray gun and carried by low velocity air to the surface of the piece to be coated. The electrostatic charge holds the powder particles in place while the part is cured in an oven at the required temperature. The heat of the oven causes a chemical reaction to occur and the powder to cure, creating a highly durable finish.

  • What About Holes/Threads/Filler?
      What About Holes with Threads & Other Areas That Need To Stay Coating Free? High temperature masking can be applied to special surfaces such as threads or high tolerance areas to keep them from being coated. We also use high temperature silicon plugs for threaded holes or shafts. Can I Use Body Filler? The high oven temperature makes the use of plastic and resin body fillers problematic. We use specialist fillers in house but are restricted to large damaged areas again because of oven temperature.
  • What is Clear Coating?
      Clear powder coating serves the same purpose as clear coat wet paint. It protects the underlying finish and adds depth and luster to the surface. Clear powder coat is applied as a second coat and shot while the piece is still hot. Then the piece is returned to the oven for a second curing process. Use clear powder coating on any piece that exposure to elements could cause it to fade or be subject to damage.
  • Is It Enviromentaly Friendly?
      Nowhere else are the benefits of architectural powder coating more evident than on the thousands of commercial, industrial, government, residential, historic and institutional buildings from around the world. For 30 years, powder coating has been the finish of choice for a superior, more colorful, longer lasting and more durable finish. Powder coating is an environmentally friendly process unlike solvent-based wet paint systems. While liquid finishes contain solvents which have pollutants known as volatile organic compounds (VOCs), powder coating contains no solvents and releases negligible amounts, if any, of VOCs into the atmosphere. Elimination of VOCs and reduction of wastes saves money and helps companies comply more easily and economically with the regulations of the U.K Environment Agency. In addition, unused or oversprayed powder can be recovered, so any waste is minimal and can be disposed of easily and safely.
  • What Can be Coated?
      What Can Be Coated? Any metal object that can hold an electrostatic charge and withstand the heat of the curing process can be powder coated. Powder can be applied to intricate surfaces and still maintain a uniform finish across the entire piece. Powder coating is ideal for items such as:
      •             Industrial Fabrications
      •             Architectural Signage
      •             Doors and Windows
