As providers of powder coating in East Sussex, we know it’s a versatile, efficient, and highly effective finishing process.
Powder coating is well-suited for providing expert finishes to metal surfaces, fabrications and products.
The dry powder particles in powder coating are a combination of various different agents, including polymer resin, pigment and curatives.
To apply this coating, it is sprayed onto a surface using an electronically-charged spray gun. The negatively charged powder adheres to the positively-charged surface. This also ensures that it coats even hard-to-cover areas, such as corners and sharp edges.
After the spray application, the curing stage comes next. The coated part is baked in as special oven, at a set temperature and for a specific time.
During this curing process, the powder melts and fuses, forming a hard, uniform outer shell.
Drying is rapid, and once this part of the process is complete, your coated part is ready for shipping, distribution or direct use.
Powder coating is a fast and convenient alternative to liquid paint. Application is swift and after curing, drying is fast too. For finishing metal parts it cuts out any additional waiting time.
Powder coating is long-lasting and hardwearing. It helps make surfaces more scratch-resistant, and offers protection from general wear and tear, such as fading and chipping.
It is more environmentally-friendly than liquid paint because it is solvent-free, containing virtually no volatile organic compounds (VOCs), which can be hazardous to human health.
Powder coating produces minimal waste. Any powder you over-spray, you can collect and re-use another time.
East Sussex is home to a broad range of businesses, and powder coating has a wide range of applications to match.
