Metallisation of a Land Rover Chassis

Metallisation in progress on a land rover chassis. Note the fine laydown of pure molten zinc particles forming a barrier on the blast cleaned surface.

This is the next best thing to galvanised dipping without the worry of frame distortion or build up of materials in the box sections or any mounting threads.

Once complete it can be wet painted or powder coated.

Hardwood, blast cleaned, coated in zinc then copper metallisation. Something different. New project one off designer a table lamps…

A somewhat unusual approach but this is what the client requested. Blast clean & zinc metallisation. We asked if he was sure. We prefer the parts to be removed before we start on such work.

Hardwood metallation. Light blast work to raise the grain,then coated in pure copper or aluminium. Hard wearing & outstanding. Can be overcoated with clear lacquer. Other pure metal finishes available. Can be used for flooring, window frames, furniture, artwork infact any type of soft or hardwood. For samples please call.

Cast Alloy frame shown in the first three shots. Now finished in metallised pure copper coat. This can be aged with special antique fluid.

Oversized Bearing Housings

Here is a little trick for oversized bearing housings, This part is an alloy casting and the bearing were a very poor fit. We put our metallistion gun to work and sprayed a pure alloy metal on the surface to build up the walls. This item is now in the engineering shop being milled out to size

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.
