Undertaking powder coating, wet spraying and specialist patina finishes to Brass, Copper and Steel.

Powder Coating

– is the application of organic powder by electrostatic attraction to metal. Once cured by heat the finish is a smooth, hard skin. All processes are factory applied under controlled, stable conditions. This provides significant benefits over traditional wet spray painting.

Hot Dip Galvanising

– is the process of applying a protective zinc coating to steel to prevent rusting. The most common method is hot-dip galvanizing, in which parts are submerged in a bath of molten zinc. Galvanizing protects in three ways:

  1. It forms a coating of zinc which, when intact, prevents corrosive substances from reaching the underlying steel or iron.
  2. The zinc serves as a sacrificial anode so that even if the coating is scratched, the exposed steel will still be protected by the remaining zinc.
  3. The zinc protects its base metal by corroding before iron.

Zinc Electroplating

-is a process in which a layer of zinc is bonded to steel in order to protect against corrosion. The process involves electroplating, running a current of electricity through a saline/zinc solution with a zinc anode and steel conductor.
