There are many variables and factors to consider for trouble free coating. Please don't hesitate to contact us to make sure you are armed with the right information from a professional, experienced and well qualified team.

What is powder coating?

It is a type of protective and decorative coating that is applied electrostatically as a dry powder and then cured in an oven. The curing process heats the dry powder allowing it to flow and form a tough, solid film. The key difference between powder and liquid coatings is that powder does not require a solvent and is VOC free, therefore making it a less hazardous coating.

What can I apply powder coatings to?

Metal substrates such as aluminium or steel.

In order for powder coating to be effective, the substrate must be clean and allow easy keying for the coating. This may require cleaning or sandblasting unless the material is new.

Is powder coating environmentally friendly?

Yes. Powder coating exhibits many environmental advantages. Powder coatings are VOC free and produce minimal waste.

What is the difference between Powder Coating and Plastic Dipping?

Process and materials. Powder coating is applied electrostatically and uses Polyester powders and forms a chemical bond. Plastic Dipping uses thermoplastic plastic powders which bond via heat that "envelopes" the product. Dipping can be more effective where sharp weld edges need to be covered.
