ACHIEVING THE BEST RESULTS
Powder Coating & Blast Finishing
What type of objects can be powder coated?
You can achieve a beautiful, professional powder coat finish on any metal object–decorative or functional–so long as the metal can conduct electricity. Conductive metals include aluminium, zinc, nickel, brass, iron, steel, lead and stainless steel.
The types of objects we have so far powder coated include metal car parts, alloy wheels, motorbike and bicycle frames, railings, gates, outdoor and indoor furniture frames, sculptures, metal crafts, electrical components, industrial furnishings and electrical components.
What size objects can be powdercoated?
Our oven size is 180cm wide X 160cm high X 300cm deep. Objects for powder coating will therefore need to fall in under these dimensions by approximately 5%-10%.
What condition should objects be in?
Objects should be as clean as possible so as to ensure consistent adherence of the powder. We also offer a cleaning and surface abrasion sevice for the removal of rust and other persistent coatings.
Objects should be bare metal so please ensure that they do not contain any parts (plastic, rubber, wooden, glass etc.) or coatings that are likely to break, burn or disentegrate at under 200 degrees celcius.
Car wheels should have tyres removed.

Cleaning & Blast Finishing
To ensure optimal adherence of the powder, an even coat, and ultimately, the best finish, it is normally necessary to undertake some type of cleaning or surface abrasion on an object.
This may involve a simple rubdown of the object with alcohol (in order to eliminate dust or contaminants like oils) through to a more heavy-duty industrial process such as blast finishing.
Blast Finishing, usually referred to as sand blasting, involves silica sand or crushed walnut shells, being blasted under high pressure at an object. The goal is to smooth the surfaces of the object and/or to remove rust or some well-adhered existing coating. Wire-brushing or filing might also be required on occasion.
All products are inspected in advance of powder coating to determine the most appropriate cleaning process. No abrasive cleaning will take place without prior discussion with, and approval of, the customer.
Note that you can avail of blast finishing as a service on its own, without powder coating.
