Powder CoatingAny Bare Metal Can Be Powder Coated
Our three-decades of operations in South Australia has cemented our status as a reputable household name in the powder coating industry. We provide a wide range of powder coating applications that are tailored to your specific needs, with all available in a range of colours so you can achieve a consistent style. For metal and aluminium coating we use 2 highly durable products; standard polyester and Duralloy 272. Our polyester coating can be used to coat almost all metal items, including garden furniture, lighting, automotive wheels, and aluminium windows & doors. Duralloy 272 is a low maintenance film coating that has been specifically designed to withstand the extremes of the Australian climate, with this powder generally used over aluminium, steel, zinc-coated metals and castings. If you are ever unsure of which powder will best suit your specific application, our team is here to help!
Prior to coating, we prepare and pre-treat the surface in order to remove dirt, oil and contaminants to ensure there is adhesion between the powder and base metal. We than place the objects into a chromate tank for chromate conversion as per the requirements outlined by Australian standards for aluminium. Once the surfaces are sufficiently cleaned and treated, we apply the powder coating using an electrostatic gun to achieve an even finish. Our range of colours and finishes are designed to suit both domestic and commercial applications. Finally, the items are heat cured to ensure the powder is bonded to the metal – and just like that, your aged and weathered items are completely brought back to life!
To attain the highest level of quality control with our processes, we send samples of our powder coating work to the Akzo Nobel 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. This is part of our continuous improvement program to ensure that we are at the forefront of powder coating technology and processes.
