At Tomburn Limited, we offer a range of powder coatings and specialist finishes to industry leading clients across a range of industries. With over 40 years of experience, we pride ourselves in providing the absolute best value and services in finishing for all of our customers. We take quality very seriously— it’s at the core of how we operate. In fact, we’ve developed a completely transparent quality strategy to enable our clients to participate in the process of maintaining our high standard. Our Quality Strategy comprises two stages: quality control and quality assurance.
First, we ensure all parts are fully inspected by experts to check for visual appearance, paint thickness, gloss levels and colour uniformity. We then conduct destructive tests on test panels in the laboratory. Twice a day, we fully test panels for flexibility, adhesion, impact resistance, gloss level, colour and pre-treatment quality. We also check the fabricating quality by subjecting the panels to drilling, milling, bending and sawing tests to ensure that the coating film will neither flake or peel during operations. We operate with complete transparency and ensure that the records of these test panels are kept for the duration of the warranty. We also continually improve our processes, by making sure we learn from our testing and do not repeat mistakes.
Not only do we welcome customer audits to ensure our customers’ peace of mind, but we also have an audit system for working with our suppliers. This entails: monthly chemical audits on the pretreatment processes by chemical suppliers, annual process audits by powder suppliers and twice yearly BSI audits on quality systems. We also employ a range of preventative measures including hourly chemical testing by lab technicians on pretreatment chemicals and twice daily checks of oven temperature and curing cycles. Additionally, we have developed mistake proofing systems and are constantly performing preventative maintenance procedures on all equipment. We provide in-depth training for all of our employees as well as a grading system to ensure our standard is maintained.
