Our paint-shop facility enables final finishing to a variety of products. Wet Painting and Powder Coating is available for a wide range of finishes – bespoke fabrications can be wet painted up to 12m in length and 16 tonnes in weight.
Unlike wet painting, powder coating is applied via a free-flowing, dry powder. It is typically done electrostatically before being cured under heat.
A finishing process for de-burring, de-oxidising and removing sharp edges.
This method removes any rust, scale, old paint and small surface defects as well as give a good surface finish to aid paint adhesion.
We use a dedicated machine for surface finishing materials, often stainless steel, to the desired grain finish. Can also be used for de-burring of mild steel and removing sharp edges.
Hot dip galvanising is the process of dipping the product in a bath of molten zinc to add multiple layers of zinc coatings, for added corrosion resistance of the part.
This method uses hydrolysis to plate one metal onto another for added corrosion resistance or alternatively decorative purposes.
Wet painting is the more traditional form of applying liquid paint to metal for finishing. Today, this is typically done with a pump, spray or pressurised vessel.
The process used to increase the thickness of the natural oxide layer on the surface of metal parts, typically aluminium and is done to give improved surface resistance to wear and corrosion; also, being used for decorative purposes.
Phosphate Washing (Phoswash)
Utilise top of the range wet blasting, degreasing and phosphating equipment to ensure a clean and fully degreased product ready for painting.
After Wash, Pre-Paint Treatment
Pre-paint treatment is applied following the washing process. This allows the paint to better bond to the metal, provides enhanced resistance to weathering and corrosion; ultimately providing a longer lasting finish.
‘Burrs’ are raised edges or unwanted pieces of material which can be found on parts following modification. Deburring is the process of removing these unwanted pieces of material.
The first stage of our metal finishing process is a comprehensive pre-paint inspection prior to removing any imperfections where required
Powder coating offers a durable, high-quality finish which allows for maximised production capabilities and comes in an almost limitless range of colours.
Typically, being a “one coat finish”, powder coating is one of the most economical finishes available on virtually any type of metal.
We offer powder coating as a service across our entire range of metals.
Following the comprehensive pre-paint inspection, we offer a variety of methods to prepare the part for cleaning/degreasing – from matt textures to very high gloss finishes.
For products which cannot be heated, wet painting is the ideal solution as powder coating is cured under heat.
If products require a thin paint finish, then wet painting is recommended as it provides a much thinner finish than powder coating.
We can offer wet spray painting in single or two pack paints for larger jobs which cannot be powder coated or require special finishes.
