Powder Coating South East England

Businesses can benefit from powder coating throughout South East England. Powder coating is a versatile and highly effective alternative to liquid paint. It provides finishes for aluminium, steel and other metallic surfaces, fabrications and products.

What is the Powder Coating Process?

Unlike liquid paint, powder coating is a dry coating process. You apply it to a metallic substrate using an electrostatic charge from a spray gun.

By giving the powder particles a negative charge, this ensures that they will adhere properly to the surface, which has a positive charge.

Because the application is by a dry powder spray, this ensures an excellent, all-round coverage, including hard-to-reach areas or sharp, angular parts.

Once the surface is coated thoroughly, you can immediately cure the coating. This involves baking the coated part in a special oven, for a specified length of time, at the optimum, recommended temperature.

This part of the powder coating process causes the powder to melt and fuse together, forming a hardened and evenly-distributed outer shell.

Once the coated part has cooled, it is ready distribution, shipping or immediate use.

Powder Coating Applications in South East England

As a process, powder coating has a broad range of applications for different industries and sectors in the South East England region.

Powder coating is extremely effective in protecting metal surfaces that have outdoor exposure, such as architectural features, exterior furniture, industrial and agricultural machinery.

For manufacturers of steel and aluminium fabrications in South East England, powder coating provides finishes to their products that are hardwearing and visually attractive. It also protects machinery and equipment from the effects of corrosion.

Road signs and directional signage is exposed to outdoor elements continuously, and powder coating offers long-term protection for all weather conditions.

Car restoration specialists and garages across South East England use powder coating processes to protect different car components, and add an extra, good-looking dimension to their finishes.

These components include car wheels, door and window handles, window frames and bumpers. You can even powder coat car radiators and engine blocks.

External, everyday metal surfaces such as roofs and garage doors benefit from powder coating to protect them.

It’s also beneficial for products such as office and garden furniture and golf carts, as it will help to preserve them in a near-pristine condition. Powder coating is decorative and durable.

What are the Benefits of Powder Coating Finishes?

  • Powder coating is durable, good looking and tough. The surfaces you apply it to are more resistant to wear and tear, scratching, chipping and fading. It provides an even finish, creating a uniform outer shell.
  • It quick to apply, and its finishing time is rapid too. Once you apply it evenly to the surface, it goes into the oven for baking and curing straight away. This streamlines and accelerates finishing your whole process for finishing. It is faster than liquid paint in this respect.
  • Powder coating cuts down on waste. Any powder you don’t use, or you overspray, you can easily re-use. This can make it a very economical option.
  • Along with minimising waste, powder coating is also more environmentally friendly because, unlike liquid paint, it is solvent-free. This means it contains virtually no potentially harmful volatile organic compounds (VOCs). It also means that it’s much easier to be compliant when transporting and disposing of powder coating.

Reasons to Choose Powder Coating

Surface finishing is essential for a wide variety of applications involving metal.  These applications include agricultural machinery, industrial equipment, car components, agricultural features and a range of different products, from golf carts to office furniture.
