Powder Coating is a type of coating that is applied as a free flowing, dry powder. 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.
The coating is typically applied electrostatically and is then placed in an oven and heated which causes a chemical reaction so that the powder melts and fuses together to create a smooth and highly durable finish.
Powder coating is used to create a hard finish that is tougher than conventional paint. Powder coating is mainly used for coating of metals, such as household appliances, aluminium extrusions, vehicle and bicycle parts. Powder coatings emit zero or near zero volatile organic compounds and can produce much thicker coatings than through the use of conventional liquids.
Powder coatings resist cracking and peeling and are extremely abrasion, corrosion and chemical resistant. The performance characteristics of powder coating match or exceed the characteristics achieved from conventional solvent based coatings.
Due to the fact that we hand spray all items that we powder coat and wet spray, we can ensure the highest attention to detail as we have eyes on the product as it is being coated rather than an automated machine process.
Our skilled painters can handle all wet spray requirements. Our wet spray booths offer premium levels of quality for spray painting and no bake curing and can accommodate large applications.
We offer a range of high quality, cost effective wet spray finishes for many products from small plastic parts to large complex items. There is an unlimited colour range, including solid colours, metallic and pearl finishes in any gloss level. Colours can be matched to any sample provided.
Advantages of wet spray painting include low overspray, high quality finish, no brush marks, it is versatile and ideal for shutters, electrical control equipment, furniture, metal work structures, trims, decorative finishes, cabinets and mild steel.
Wet spray is ideal for items which cannot tolerate the high temperatures that are involved in the powder coating process.
The wet spraying process achieves a long lasting durable coating, similar to that of powder coating. .
We have a large range of colours in stock from Dulux, PPG, Interpon and Jotun to name a few. We can also match any colour that you request.
