Samples of pure zinc metallisation carried out by MSB.
The examples below show one plate cut back with a air sander revealing a satin finish or can be left in its out of the gun form for incredible paint adhesion.
This pure zinc coating can be used for any steel body shells, chassis work. Once applied any type of colour coating can be applied. offering outstanding corrosion protection.
When left unpainted this coating will last over 20 years exposed to all weathers. So if you are looking for ultimate anti corrosion protection then you have found it. From replacement car panels to full steel body shells. See the link above showing a Land Rover Chassis being coated and other vehicle projects we have undertaken in the past.
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.

Exhaust headers –Aluminium coated metallisation coating. For a long and reliable life.
For a long and reliable life. Ready to be coated in gloss black heat paint up to 800d cent. A further ceramic colour coat can be applied.
Exhaust Manifold – before & after metallisation
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
