For the powder coating process, dry powder is shot through an electrostatic gun on to the metal exterior. The gun gives the powder a negative charge, and the negatively charged powder is attracted to the grounded part. The attraction results in fast, even application.
Once the coating reaches the desired thickness, the coated piece is placed in a curing oven, where the heated powder gels. Curing creates thermal bonds between powder particles, resulting in a smooth, hard finish.
The main difference between a conventional liquid paint and a powder coating is that the powder coating does not require a solvent to keep the binder and filler parts in a liquid suspension form.
A powder coated finish offers superior scratch, impact and chemical resistance to metals coated correctly.
Everything from rims to railings, gate, furniture, lighting, fixtures, furnishings, venting, auto & mechanical parts can be powder coated.
Aluminium, Galvanised Steel, Stainless & Steel Alloys and some solid Cast Metals can be coated provided it can hold an electrostatic charge.
Our powder range offers Smooth, textured, hammer tone and veins-just to name a few. Smooth finishes come in Super Mirror, Semi-Gloss, Satin & Matte.
Generally, metal coatings can last up to 10 years or longer depending on the environment, quality of coating & type of powder.
Our oven dimensions are 5m long x 2.4m high x 2.4m wide.
