Powder Coating Push Bike Frames.

Maldon Shot Blasting & Powder Coating Ltd carry out work on pushbike frames to a very high and long lasting standard.

Remember our motto do it once do it right. Our work will last you for many years to come, as powder coating is extremely chip resistant over stove or wet paints.

We are very aware that other’s offer a cheaper service, however we DO NOT cut corners and offer a professional service along with a five year anti corrosion warranty.

The frame material governs the approach we take on the first stage preparation.

Careful preparation is key to a successful finished result.

If you know or believe any carbon fibre parts are present, please be sure to inform us, as carbon fibre is not a material that can be powder coated.

We do not apply naked flames or high temperatures to strip off paint or decals as some do, this can give rise to local distortion with disastrous results.

1. Steel frames, dipped in an alkaline paint remover then a light blast clean to remove all remaining paintwork and any corrosion and allow for a first class key for prime coat. We do not use any type of acids.

2. Aluminium or alloy frames will be bead or aqua blasted this is less aggressive over blast cleaning and yet it still gives a first class key for the prime coat.

3. Once the blast or bead cleaning stage is completed, the work visually checked over for damage as cracks or broken weld joints.

4. The frame and other parts are placed into our Phosphating and wash plant for final and complete deep clean, the phosphate helps further to etch into the work and therefore will give a far longer life.

5 .Masking off, all the threads and raceways making ready for the primer coats.

6. Apply our zinc epoxy polyester primer coat at an average of 50 microns per coat.

7. Put through the semi curing stage @130d cent.

8. Apply the colour coat of polyester powder and fully cure until both the primer & topcoat have fully bonded to the work.

At this stage, we can apply either a further clear or special effect lacquer coats.

If you wish to supply decals we can apply them for you however they must be able to withstand a 2 pack clear coat, (check with your supplier first)

Chrome Silver Powder Coat with Diamond Clear Lacquer

Chrome, along with steel tubesets is en vogue once again and while there’s no denying its allure when gleaming seductively in the afternoon sun, electro plating remains a nasty process and one that presents all manner of headaches when refinishing. Many myths surround electroplate, the most common being that copper is employed for corrosion resistance (it is in fact, used to create an ultra smooth surface for the latter layers of super bright nickel responsible for the characteristic mirror effect).

Take the heat off

This product is really taken off. The silver items have had our two coat system internal heat barrier applied that keeps a lot of heat radiation through the system, improves performance according to the manufactures of this product. Long lasting will not discolour or flake off or crack even with rapid cooling. We are so confident that we will guarantee against fading & cracking. However at very high temperatures running red hot it may lose some luster. Applied by our team who have gone through extensive training so to offer you the best finished product possible.

We don't set out to make problems for anyone. We comply with health & safety rules and have always carried out improvements when requested by H&S in fact the last visit cost my business getting on for 20K to fit new spray booths and this is fine as it has made improvements to the environmental impact and improved productivity. We have a full insurance inspection twice a year on the plant & machinery, have our staff monitored for related medical issues, breathing hearing etc, three of them have full fork lift training, all this costs a small fortune but we play the game and do what needs to be done. Ok if your company is out of line and causing problems then you can and should expect some sort of comeback, but all it takes is for someone to make the problems and inconvenience known to the owner that it may cause other people, not hide behind the authorities.

Anyway who ever it was thought our gas calor gas tanks were wrongly sited, the fact they have been there for 12 years and sited by Calor gas who know the law and regs inside out how to site them. They are checked every year for safety including the feed out gas pipes, they are protection by safety barriers and are in line with the regs at the time of placement. It seems some twat thinks they know better. I guess they don't like to see businesses who are doing well play the game or they just don't like them where they are. It makes me think is it all worth the grief and frustration and great expence running a business these days.

Some idiots think you have a wallet full of money, guess again we don't. It's a very costly running a company large or small. so many rules regs, miles of red tape, dealing with employment rules, tax & vat, Health & safety, taking on increasing overheads without passing them on trying to be fair and just.

The cherry on top of the lot is the twats that have nothing better to do but stir up further unfounded complaints. Makes me extremely angry..

Thats my anger vented and as far as I am concerned that hopefully is the end of it.
