  • Powder Coating & Ceramic Coating FAQS:

 ( Frequently Asked Questions )

  • What is Powder Coating?

  • Powder coating is a type of coating that is applied as a free-flowing, dry powder. Unlike conventional liquid paint which is delivered via an evaporating solvent, powder coating is typically applied electrostatically and then cured under heat or with ultraviolet light.

  • How do you Powder Coat on object?

  • The solution to powder coating items is pre-heating. You can heat up the object in the oven, remove the object and powder coat it before it cools. When the powder hits the heated part, it will slightly melt on contact, causing it to stick. It will last a long time as long all the correct prep work is done before hand.

  • What colours can be applied?

  • A wide range of colours can be applied - see our services on our home page.

  • How long does it take to complete the whole powder coating process?

  • It all depends on the pervious coating of an item, and what our current work load is. We normally aim for around 2 weeks turn around. Sometimes faster. We do everything to a very high standard, so we take our time to get it right.

  • What materials can be powder coated?

  • Almost all metals that are capable of taking an electrical charge and can withstand temperatures of 180℃

  • Can I bring an item in and collect it, the same day?

  • Short answer is no. We have a small workshop. We are not an industrial powder coater. We work in a small team for high quality finishes.

  • How environmentally friendly is Powder Coating?

  • One of the key advantages powder coating has over other finishing processes is how safe it is for the environment and for the people who work with it. Unlike traditional solvent-based wet paint, powder coating is considered a “green” technology that doesn't generate harmful solvents or airborne pollutants.

  • Have you got a big range of colours?

  • We work with a range of colours, and finishes. We do work with RAL charts as well. We even offer a colour matching service. Feel free to contact us about any colour questions.

  • What is the maximum size object that you can powder coat?

  • As we are only a small business, we don't have a industrial sized oven. So the maximum size we can powder coat is nothing bigger than 4ft.

  • Is powder coating  better than wet painting?

  • Absolutely, Powder coating provides better performance than wet paint—it is more resistant to chipping, scratching, and other wear because of the thermal bonding it undergoes during curing, and because it can be applied in much thicker layers.

  • Can Items have a primer applied before the main coat?

  • We have a range of primers. Talk to us about the ones we stock, and why we only use certain ones for certain types of objects.

  • How do you price up your work?

  • We go on how long something has taken us. Or if it is a more expensive paint. No job is the same price. Which is why we don't offer a price list.

  • Can you coat anything other than metal?

  • No. It can be done, we don't offer that service. We cannot powder coat plastics or wood. We offer a ceramic service which can be done on plastic items.

  • What is Ceramic Coating?

  • Cerakote line of high temperature ceramic coatings. Formulated to withstand temperatures up to 2,000 degrees Fahrenheit, the Cerakote high temperature ceramic coatings outperform all other high temperature coatings in the most extremeenvironments.

  • What can be Ceramic Coated?

  • Automotive Components, Exhaust & Headers, Aluminum Wheels, Brakes & Calipers,Turbos & Manifolds, Full Auto Barrels, Suppressors, Muzzle Brakes, Industrial Gas & Oil, Heat Exchangers, And much more.

  •  What Is the advantage of Ceramic Coating?

  • Better thermal barrier properties than any other high temperature coatings.• Industry leading heated and un-heated corrosion resistance.• Withstands thermal shock without degrading or losing color.• Extremely high chemical resistance (specific chemical performance available by request).

  •  Level of Ceramic Coating

  • Professionals:  have all the right facilities, products, tools, and resources for the job and take the proper time to make sure the item is 100 percent prepared for a ceramic coating. Because of their level of attention to detail, ceramic coating jobs can take days and cost from several hundreds of pounds to a couple thousand. A professional coating will assuredly last longer than any DIY product.
