Need to use it fast ? – Choose a Powder Coating

When wet painting or spraying there is always the long wait afterward waiting for it to dry or the equipment that is being wet painted cannot be out of action for a long time, this course of treatment is simply not the one for you. When powder coating an object, you do not need to worry about any of that. It cures quickly and then the object is able to be used straight away. With an outstanding finish and is resistant to all weather mother nature can throw at it what more could you want. Available in fluorescent, metallic, pearl and sparkly effect you will be spoilt for choice. Antibacterial coatings are also available for medical uses.

 

Powder can be cured at temperatures ranging from 170c to 220c making finishes very durable and can protect against sun, rain, snow & salt e.t.c. if applied with expertly prepared surfaces using the latest pre-treatments. 

Ranges in colours and finishes are endless, a few varieties’ are: 

 

• BS and RAL in most sheens, matt, satin, and gloss.

How is Powder Applied? 

 

Powder Coating  is applied using electrostatic process. As the powder is charged and using the latest Nordson guns, air is used to transfer the charged powder to the pre-treatment component with expert precision, making sure corners, edges and inside boxes are all coated uniformly. The products are then ‘baked’ in our large on line oven so a uniform film is achieved ensuring no 'hot spots' occur which would produce uneven colour. 

 

Using our wealth of experience with different powder providers, we choose the right powder for each product. 

 

Knowing a powder's limitations as well as its benefits is one of the reasons Impact Coatings is so successful. 

 

Impact Coatings have the ability to coat anything from one off items to much larger projects like complete shop fits. Please see our Gallery section for some examples of our work.
