Do you know the benefits of Glass Coatings? 

- Did you know that glass coatings are water resistant, are extremely durable and are easy to clean? Many do not know that glass coatings are very effective if done properly; they leave a smooth glossy finish and being scratch resistant it makes the object look brand new every time. To ensure the right coating is added we supply both water and solvent glass coatings, each coming in various colours for you to choose from. With our highly experienced team the possibilities are endless.


Have you tried Plastic Coating? 

- Do you know the benefits of adding plastic coatings to an object. Not only are they very long lasting and have anti- corrosion properties, the coating is extremely versatile so can be added to the most complicated of objects; always leaving a high-quality finish. The process itself is quick and easy; first the object is dipped into Thermoplastic powders and left to dry, then the plastic coatings is added and that’s the job done.

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.

Wood Coatings 

Here at Impact Coatings our team can coat numerous types of wood with multiple types of coatings. We offer polyurethane coating which can be oil or water based.

Our polyester base coating is best suited for boat and car interiors to give you the best finish possible.
