Choosing the right wood coating

Here at Impact Coatings we offer two main types of wood coatings depending on what the object is used for and where it is stored. If the object is mainly stored/used indoors then we use a water based polyurethane coating and for items kept outside the oil polyurethane coating is used as it is heat resistant and much more durable than the water based option. On the other hand for projects like car interiors or boats the coating we use has a polyester base which gives it an extremely durable layer of protection and will last for years to come.

Making Hydrographics Simpler

The process put simply is adding a layer of ink on the surface of water and moving the desired object through it until it is coated. This type of coating is perfect for objects that are not flexible or have lots of tight areas that machines that cannot easily get into. We can coat many 3D objects such as car parts and bike helmets in addition to wood and ceramic objects too. This coatings leaves a high-quality finish that lasts for years and years to come.

The advantages of Wet Spraying

Coming in a variety of different colours and having a rather quick drying time are just some of the advantages of choosing to wet spray an object. Our spray booth can be heated up to 80c to make sure the drying time is kept to a minimum. This particular coating can be applied zinc and steel as well as copper and brass, always leaving a pristine finish. Wet spraying is perfect for objects with large surface areas, or ones than cannot be powder coated due to their size.

Ever considered glass coatings?

Instead of having new coloured glass installed to your property, why not just colour the existing glass? This cuts the overall cost down considerably and takes much less time, especially if the new glass is being measured and then cut down. We offer solvent and waterborne glass coatings in a wide range of different colours for you to choose from. These coatings are durable, water resistant and extremely easy to clean; sounds too good to be true right?

Ever thought about Plastic Coatings?

Plastic coating an object gives it an extra layer of protection against general wear and tear. It has anti-corrosive properties, the coating acts as protection from shock and always leaves a seamless finish. This particular coating can easily be added to the most complicated and intricate of objects, unlike many others. The process is quick and simple so if the object is frequently in use this is the perfect choice for you.

Preparation is key! 

Preparing a client’s object before we add their choice of coating is the key to getting the perfect smooth and shiny finish. For the larger objects we shot, or bead blast them. This is because it removes any existing paint or rust that has built up over time, this is in addition to treating the object with environmentally friendly Zirconium Phosphate. For the more delicate objects we handle we use an acid pickle process which isn’t has harsh as shot or bead blasting meaning it is suitable for all materials and objects.

A quicker alternative to wet painting 

Do you need a quicker alternative to wet painting? Our team know very well that some don't simply have the time to wait for the wet paint to dry, especially if the object is a piece of much used equipment. That is why our team offer 'Powder Coatings' instead. These give the same glossy finish, are extremely resistant to any weather conditions, but at half the time. This type of coating can be applied to nearly all objects and pieces of equipment that you have. What's not to like? Take a look at our @Powder Coatings' page for more information.
