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.

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.
