What is Powder Coating And Why does it need shot blasting?

For a full and clear explanation follow this link. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Powder_coating

Powder coating is one of the most advanced coating processes available and offers a long land durable finish.

Powder coating is a method of applying a decorative and protective finish to a wide range of materials and products.

The dry powder coating process involves electro statically charged that are sprayed onto a electrically grounded surface. The substrate is then heated and cured while the powder is baked on. The result is a uniform, durable,high-quality finish with exterior durability, Polyester powders are particularly resistant to ultra violet radiation.

There is a good Colour selection with dead mat to high gloss finishes available. A range Textured finishes and special effects  are also available.

The Powder coating process is environmentally safe with virtually no VOC’s (Volatile Organic Compound)_released during the application and curing of the powder.

Why does it need shot blasting?

In short, it removes all contaminants such as rust, old paint etc and gives a good canvas and key to start the powder or painting process,and at the same time, it normally reveals any problems such as corrosion weakness or broken weld joints. Good preparation is paramount to a good long lasting finish.

When products do not need blast cleaning  our new three stage cleaning & phosphate machine will be employed this further ensures a clean and etched surface for any powder or paint to adhere too.
