Powder Coating Services
We offer a complete powder coating service at Wrekin Sheetmetal.
This begins with a three-stage pre-treatment that consists of an iron phosphate cleanser, de-min water rinse and Gardolene® sealant. Our treatments clean and prepare the surfaces for powder application with long lasting results.
During powder coating, our customers can select from a large stock of RAL colours, with a variety of gloss levels and textured finishes, in addition to high spec powders for antibacterial and high heat use.
We work closely with a collection of approved suppliers that allows us to process special colours and finishes quickly to meet customer requirements. All colours and finishes can be provided in polyester and epoxy powder coatings to suit your project specifications.
Additionally, our Nordson Colour Max booth with HD technology runs both automatic spray guns and manual sprayer platforms to provide excellent control over coverage and thickness.
Finally, all parts undergo inspection as part of our quality process that monitors µm thickness, powder coverage, adhesion and compliant finish. Once approved, our assembly team provides a full assembly service as required, with parts available for packaging according to specifications or company standard.
Powder Coating FAQs
Powder coating is a dry finishing process used to apply a durable and protective layer of cured, coloured powder to a surface.
During powder coating, dry powder, composed of finely ground particles of pigment and resin, is electrostatically charged and sprayed onto an object. The charged particles adhere to the surface, forming a powder layer. The coated object is then cured in an oven, where the heat causes the powder to melt and fuse into a durable, smooth finish.
Powder coating offers enhanced durability with a resilient, aesthetic finish that is less prone to chipping, fading or scratching compared to traditional liquid coatings. The manufacturing process is also quicker than liquid paint and can result in cost-savings in the long term thanks to its longevity and durability.
