Powder Coating

Powder coatings are applied and come in a wide variety of colours textures and gloss levels and offer a highly durable scratch and chemical resistant finish. It also provides excellent corrosion protection.

There are five major types of Electrostatic powder:

  • Epoxy
  • Epoxy Polyester
  • Polyester
  • Plastic (Plasticoat warm to touch)
  • Antibacterial

Each of these powders has different performance characteristics.

Powder Coating Applications

Pre-treatment scan be used prior to application these include:

  • Zinc Electroplating
  • Aluminium conversion coating
  • Ion Phosphate to aid adhesion and corrosion performance

Powder Coating Colours

Non-standard colours may be available on request. Please enquire for details of textures and gloss levels.

Summary of Powder Coating Qualities

  • No risk of running or blistering
  • High repeatability
  • Powder coatings withstand knocks and abrasion far better than wet paint coatings
  • Good formability (e.g. can be formed after coating)
  • Suitable for outdoor use – good resistance to UV and corrosion
  • A beautiful and uniform quality finish without paint runs
  • Cost efficient – even on small batches or single items
  • The electrostatic powder process ensures complete coverage – even on complex shapes
  • Choice of finishes – clear, plain colour, metallic or textured
  • Protection against external ultraviolet fading
  • Corrosion resistance
  • Exceptional gloss and colour retention
  • Robust mechanical and chemical performance – good at resisting abrasion, acids, solvents etc.
  • Good electrical insulation capabilities
  • Strong resistance to chips, scratches, chemicals and grease
  • Virtually any colour can be matched
  • Tends not to run, drip or sag which may result in fewer rejects
  • High resistance to damage by weather
  • Contains no Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC’s)
