Metallisation, first video shows the application of pure zinc base coat, second video shows applying pure copper coat, this finish can be part polished or antique fluids applied to give that weathered look. In the second video also you will see a hardwood sample being coated with a copper finish and again can be sanded or polished highlighting the raised wood grain. Zinc prime coat serves as a very effective anti corrosion coat that can be used on many items inducing car chassis, body panels, bike frames etc and is happy with any type of wet primer paints. With the added bonus of filling in rust pin holes after blast cleaning. In fact (zinc) as we have carried out some test samples can be applied to cardboard, resin base materials for instance for film studious scenery. The Star gate(tm) was zinc coated (not by us) but shows how effective this product is.

Maldon Shot Blasting & Powder coating Ltd is now offering -: Thermal or metal spraying steel to protect it from corrosion has always been recognised as a long-term solution for many industries and has many advantages over hot dip galvanising.

• Low heat input during spraying eliminates the risk of thermal distortion
• Low heat input eliminates the risk of thermal metallurgical degradation
• Sealed hollow fabrications may be treated without risk of explosion
• The process is not limited to zinc. The coating material may be selected specifically for the environment.
• Coating thickness may be varied from place to place to provide extra protection in critical areas
• There is no limit to the size of article which can be treated
• Articles can be treated on site
• There is no effluent disposal problem
• Reduced stocks of zinc are required. Working capital is not tied up in a molten zinc bath
• Fuel is not needed to keep zinc molten when the process is not working
• Metal spraying is used to restore corrosion protection on damaged areas of welded galvanised
steel.

Anti Corrosive Finishing
Metal or thermal spraying is a technology, which protects and greatly extends the life of a wide variety of products in the most hostile environments and in situations where coatings are vital for longevity. The variety of metallised coatings is vast but can be broken down into two main categories. These include finishing coatings, such as anti-corrosion or decorative coatings, and engineering coatings such as wear resistant and thermal barrier coatings.
Metal spraying is carried out in a wide range of anti corrosion and engineering markets, including oil and gas, construction, petrochemical and marine. Corrosion is a major problem for these industries. There are four commonly used processes in thermal spraying; Flamespray, Arcspray, Plasma Spray and High Velocity Oxygen Fuel (HVOF), but only two of these, Flamespray and Arcspray are normally used for finishing coatings.

COMPARISON OF METAL
SPRAYING WITH
GALVANISING
Technical Bulletin 5.7.9.2

Galvanising is a well established process for applying a corrosion protection layer of zinc to steel.
Treated steelwork is immersed briefly in molten zinc and the coating builds up very quickly.
Galvanised layers are usually of even thickness, dense and metallurgically bonded to the steel.
Thickness is typically 0.002 – 0.006 in (50 – 150μ). Coating compositions are sometimes varied to control deposit thickness and give better protection in certain specific environments.

Metal Spraying Offers the Following Advantages Over Galvanising

• Low heat input during spraying eliminates the risk of thermal distortion
• Low heat input eliminates the risk of thermal metallurgical degradation
• Sealed hollow fabrications may be treated without risk of explosion
• The process is not limited to zinc. The coating material may be selected specifically for the
environment
• Coating thickness may be varied from place to place to provide extra protection in critical areas
• There is no limit to the size of article which can be treated
• Articles can be treated on site
• There is no effluent disposal problem
• Reduced stocks of zinc are required. Working capital is not tied up in a molten zinc bath
• Fuel is not needed to keep zinc molten when the process is not working
• Metal spraying is used to restore corrosion protection on damaged areas of welded galvanised

Repaired Manifold - Using Metallisation.fw
Repair of manifold. Blast cleaned and 2 coats of Zinc metallisation applied, Giving a new lease of life, this system is extremely effective for long term protection, keeps the heat loss down by at least 20% and also very good for filling small blow holes without the need to weld. Heat paint can be applied to the zinc surface. Furthermore this is an inexpensive solution over other systems.

This VW body pan had the full anti-corrosive treatment.

VW-PowderCoatedChassis

Schedule of work:
Clean and remove dirt & grease contaminants, blast clean leaving a clean etched & rust free surface.

Apply 100 micron coat of 99.9% pure zinc metallization coating all areas and masking off all threads. Degas to remove any trapped gas built up within the zinc coat.

Remove from the curing oven and apply the first coat of Gloss black Plascoat PPA-571 (no primer coat required) whilst the material is still hot, this helps adhesion to the more difficult parts to reach .Bake off and reapply second hot coat. The overall final coats will be around 300 microns inc zinc coat. The added weight to this will be around 8 kgs.

This system not only gives a high gloss or semigloss finish it also offers extreme long term anti corrosion properties. There are other colours in the range to choose from. Yellow, Blue, Light or dark grey, brown, black, red, green & white.

The overall cost on this project came to £450.00 plus vat. Making the work cost effective and reliable in the long term over the traditional work.

Further information.
The metallization system can be used on most car body parts, motorcycle frames and products used in extreme conditions. . Aluminium panels are not suitable for zinc metallization due to the re-action between the two materials, however a pure aluminium material is used that also offers very good long term protection. Also on offer is. Copper, brass, babbitt and many more materials including pure silver & gold.

Another point to note is for zinc or Aluminium spray can also be used to fill small corrosion damage and pin holes, thus saving time and effort using standard unreliable body fillers. Please note this will not give any structural strength.

For inner surfaces that can not be treated or reached as box rails we can apply a heavy coat of Wax oil to finish the job if required.

So if you are serious and want the best possible long term solution that any car restoration company would be very hard pushed to match then the above system is the one to choose.

MSB would be happy to work alongside any restoration company to advise and offer this service.

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.
