January and February have been a busy month for our teams. We’ve been working up a sweat taking on tough projects from many clients and bringing them to life. Let’s take a look at what we’ve achieved this month and the skills we’ve successfully honed.
Powder coated finishes are very robust and long lasting and normally require very little cleaning or maintenance. Some applications naturally receive more wear and tear than others and will show signs of ageing faster as a result. For example, a powder coated handrail on a busy staircase receives transfer of body oils, grime and dirt perhaps[...]
Objects that can be powder coated are restricted only by size, really. They are almost always metal but some processes can handle non-metal objects, like plastics. The powder coating process requires them to be suspended in a spray booth to spray on the coating and then baked to cure it. Baking can be carried out in an electric oven / gas oven for[...]
Powder coating is used very widely to impart a long lasting, durable and anti-corrosive coating to a wide variety of objects including architectural steel parts, such as railings. It is preferred and specified by many designers because of its attractive finish and wide range of available colours.
Powder coating is the process of adding an additional protective layer to protect the surface of fabricated steel components or machinery. It uses resin and pigment that are sprayed onto the surface using a hose or gun. Then it's cured in a special oven. If you are based in or around Peterborough and are looking for a cost effective alternative to[...]
Even though traditional painting can offer good results in terms of quality, powder coating is a superior alternative with many fascinating benefits. In the past, manufacturers had to use liquid paint to get colour. Nowadays, dry powder is applied and then melted down to create a durable protective surface. Powder coating leaves lasting colour and[...]
Powder coating is an innovative, environmentally friendly steel treatment that doesn't contain solvents and offers a thick coating with high durability. It's applied as a dry powder that's cured and hardened, becoming as colourful as paint but with higher durability. It’s non-toxic and doesn't need to pass pollution control and other regulations.[...]
Powder coating is a very popular kind of finishing for steel fabrications and other metallic products. Although it slightly increases the cost of steel fabrication it is definitely worth it for the additional longevity and resistances imparted to the steel. It became so popular from the turn of this decade that today, it is the most commonly used[...]
Powder coating is a protective treatment whereby a free-flowing dry powder is used on the surface of the metal. It is different from conventional zinc coating and has been used widely to make aluminium and other metal products strong and durable. Powder coating and liquid coatings that are made from same resins and pigments have almost the same[...]
When it comes to choosing powder coating for fabricated steel parts, it can be a confusing and time consuming process. What started off in the 1960s as a new trend in civil engineering, quickly stuck in the market and has been popular ever since. Power coating in Norwich makes up for over 15% of the total industrial finishing market, which is a[...]
