Completing all jobs to an impeccable standard is what our team do best here at Impact Coatings. We are based on the outskirts of Colchester and cover the surrounding areas. The vast majority of jobs we complete include adding powder or wet coatings to a vast array of items leaving them looking better than new. Any coating we offer is applied to both commercial and personal items and the outcome of each project never disappoints.  


In 2015 Impact Coating stepped up to the next level by purchasing a new oven and booth which enabled our highly skilled team to bake parts of even bigger size than ever before (6 m x 2m x 2m to be exact!). The first quarter of 2016 has benefited from continued use of this new equipment gaining new orders and customers. The rest of 2016 is looking just a bright as the paint we use! 


Impact Coatings was established as a powder coatings and wet spraying business in 2002 and started operations from a 1500 sq ft starter unit in Colchester with two employees. Six years later the company has trebled its factory floorspace, increased its number of staff and remained in Colchester. With over 20 years of knowledge in the powder coating industry, we are confident we can provide you with the best quality service at realistic prices in the market sector you have chosen. 


Continued growth has been made possible by more efficient use of the company’s head office in Eastgates and taking on additional staff, hand picked for their knowledge and experience in powder coating, wet spraying, on site coatings and joinery coatings. 


Our team at Impact Coatings is ever expanding and so is the technology and machinery we have access too! To ensure that we provide the best service around we upgrade all machinery to the best specification available so that all you know you are getting the very best when choosing our team. Our company can now help people not only in Suffolk and Essex but places further afield such as London and Hertfordshire.



Impact Coatings are committed to supporting the excellent work carried out by the Colchester and Ipswich Hospitals Charity. Throughout 2019 we will be raising money for new equipment for the children's wards for both Colchester and Ipswich Hospitals.

Wood Coating

Bringing back the beauty of wood! Wood is probably the most versatile and functional material in the world and forms that basis of so many items we use in our everyday lives. This gives rise for the need to coat, paint and stain wood to keep it looking good and working well. How to do this depends heavily on what the wood is used for, where it is used and how often. Polyurethane coating is perfect for bringing out the true colour of woods and can be used where heat occurs so your kitchen table for example. Polyester coating is great for getting a high polished mirror finish so works well on decorative items....

Powder Coating wheels

Wheels powder coating wheels imageImpact Coatings has a solid reputation in custom powder coating all types of wheels & rims. including custom masking and special “metallic” colors to match car paint. All wheels are chemically stripped to remove any previous coatings and are then shot-blasted by hand to obtain a bare metal surface in preparation for coating. The wheels are then slightly dressed and filled to deal with any kerb damage to the rim edges. (We do not deal with repairs to buckled or badly dented wheels as these are safety related structural repairs and wheels should be written off and replaced)...
