Maintenance & QA

How To Maintain your Powder Coating

In conjunction with a regular maintenance program your powder coating will have a long life expectancy and will stay in good condition for many years. Just as washing your car is important for removing dirt and grime, your powder coating needs to be given a regular wash to keep it looking good.

The effects of ultra violet light atmospheric pollution, general dirt, grime and airborne salt deposits can all accumulate over time and should be removed at regular intervals.

As a general rule cleaning must take place every six months. In areas where pollutants are more prevalent, such as beachfront locations and industrial areas, cleaning programs should be carried out on a more frequent basis ie. every three months.

Three steps to cleaning your powder coating

1. Remove loose deposits with a wet sponge rather than risk micro scratching the surface by dusting.

2. Using a soft brush and mild detergent in warm water clean the powder coating to remove any dust, salt or other deposits.

3. Always rinse after cleaning to remove any remaining detergent.

Quality Assurance

To attain the highest level of quality control with our processes, every year we send samples of our powder coating work to Dulux’s labs to undergo a thorough testing procedure. This test takes three months to complete as the samples are subject to 1000 hours of acetic acid salt spray. This is to determine any imperfections to the powder coated areas looking for adhesions, blistering or corrosion to base metal. We are proud to say we have passed every test.

It is also important to note that these tests are not an industry requirement, the testing is undertaken to keep our standards and quality at the highest possible level.
