We have a large powder coating facility. Our oven enables us to powder coat items up to 5 meters in length, 3 meters in width and 2.2 meters in height.
Powder coating is a type of coating that is applied as a free-flowing dry powder. The coating is applied electrostatically and is then cured under heat to allow it to flow and form a "skin". The powder may be a thermoplastic or a thermoset polymer. It is usually used to create a hard finish that is tougher than conventional paint. Powder coating is mainly used for coating of metals, these include aluminium and mild steel.
We carry out a variety of Wet Spraying applications ranging from a zinc primed finish on large structural steel beams to the finest two pack finish on automobile parts.
Wet spray painting is a painting technique where a spray gun applies a coating through the air onto a surface. Spray painting is typically used for covering large surfaces with an even coating of liquid.
The air gun has a nozzle, paint basin, and air compressor. When the trigger is pressed the paint mixes with the compressed air stream and is released in a fine spray.
Our metal polishers cater for all aspects of polishing but specialise in polishing fabricated products, some of which include staircases, balconies and railings. We can polish on-site as well as in the workshop. Our team includes a TIG welder which enables us to remove any pin holes that are not evident during the fabrication process. Our team follow health and safety protocol and have CSCS cards.
Adfinishers blast materials to remove corrosion, paint and scale from its surfaces. For items that require a coating it also forms a foundation for the paint to adhere to. This gives the overall finish a superior quality and greater longevity. All items that have been blasted in order to be coated will be prepared and sprayed the same day to prevent oxidisation.
There are various types of blasting some of which include grit blasting, sand blasting and shot blasting. It works by an abrasive material being fired out against a surface under high pressure to remove surface contaminants. Fluid, typically pressurised by air, is used to propel the blasting material which is called media. Types of media used are garnet, nutshells, plastic abrasive, olivine, steel, chilled iron, alumina and glass.
