Process

Powder coating is a method of applying paint in powder form to aluminium surfaces. Several essential steps should always be considered when selecting an applicator.

  1. Pre-treatment A priming process that prepares the aluminium for coating. It is probably the most overlooked step, however successful adhesion of powder to the aluminium is dependent upon quality pre-treatment.
  2. Powder Coating Powder consisting of thermoset resins, pigments and other additives, is factory-applied to the metal surfaces using specialised electrostatic equipment.
  3. Oven Curing Painted products are then cured by oven baking them to 200°C During the curing the powder liquefies and the resins cross link, producing a tough and extremely durable surface finish.
  4. Packaging Prevention of marking of the finished surface requires expert packaging. Couriers and general freighters take no responsibility, you must ensure the packaging on your product is adequate.
