Not sure on what coating is the right one? 

Wood coating can be applied to a vast number of objects to give them a cleaner finish or to make them last longer. For boat and car interiors we offer a polyester base coating as it makes the wood durable even after lots of wear and tear. We also offer water or oil-based polyurethane coating; the water-based choice is for objects that are usually kept inside, and the oil based for ones that have to bear the brunt of what mother nature throws at it. The oil option is additionally heat resistant and much more durable than the water based one.

Wheels need love too! 

Are you tired of trying to scrub your wheels to get a better finish only for them to look exactly the same a week later? Did you know that powder coating your wheels will bring them back to their former glory? The process is actually very straight forward and will be completed in no time; the wheel is firstly stripped and then shot blasted to its original surface, the powder coating is then added in any colour of your choice. This process can be carried out on motorbike to much larger tractor wheels and anything in between.

What is Hydrographics? 

Using hydrographics to coat your object is the best process when the object in question is not very flexible. The process is simple as it involves putting the object through a film of ink that lies on the surface of some water, but any variation and it will not coat flat. Many objects, even 3D ones can be coated; we add hydro-graphics to many objects, such as bike helmets, alloy wheels and car parts. Our team are also able to coat ceramics, plastic, wood and metal objects. This process always leaves a shiny, high-quality finish leaving the object looking brand new.

Why choose Wet Spraying? 

- Wet spraying an object can be a very good alternative to powder coating when the object cannot be heated. This particular coating can be applied to brass, steel, zinc or copper plating always leaving a lovely finish. As well as being very durable it comes in a wider range of colours than powder coating and here at Impact Coatings, we have so many colours for you to choose from. When choosing to wet spray your object the finished outcome will never disappoint.

Everything is in the Preparation!

Before adding a client’s choice of coating to an object our team have to remove any old paint or rust by bead or shot blasting it. This ensures you receive smooth high-quality finish once the job is complete; we use environmentally friendly Zirconium Phosphate as well as bead or shot blasting. For small or delicate items, we use an acid pickle process as a form of pre-treatment. Give our team a call today on 01206 866880 where they will be on hand to help.
