Our powder coating service

What is powder coating?

Powder coating is a versatile surface treatment available in a wide range of colours and finishes.

The process uses electrostatic attraction, creating an electric field between negatively charged powder particles and the item being coated, which causes the particles to adhere to the metal surface. The metal is then heat-treated, enabling the coating to flow, and creating an attractive, even and hard-wearing finish.

The powder coating process begins with a series of pre-treatments that clean the metal and prepare its surface for optimum adhesion. Items are loaded into baskets and manually processed through a number of tanks, before being loaded on to a conveyor. The powder coating is applied manually for the best results, before being cured in the oven at a temperature of 160 to 200 degrees C for around 20 minutes.

When cool enough to handle, the parts are checked for quality and packed according to customer requirements.

Benefits

Huge range of colours

We can supply a total of 200 stock powder coating finishes, and cater to a wide range of colour requirements, including BS 4800 colours, RAL colours, and bespoke colours on request.

Quick and cost-effective

Powder coating is a quick and relatively inexpensive process. Unlike anodising, it can give good results on metal with small surface defects, reducing the preparation time needed.

Environmental benefits

Liquid finishes contain solvents that harm the environment and require energy-intense treatment. Powder coating is non-toxic and uses less energy during application.
