The advantages of Wet Spraying

Coming in a variety of different colours and having a rather quick drying time are just some of the advantages of choosing to wet spray an object. Our spray booth can be heated up to 80c to make sure the drying time is kept to a minimum. This particular coating can be applied zinc and steel as well as copper and brass, always leaving a pristine finish. Wet spraying is perfect for objects with large surface areas, or ones than cannot be powder coated due to their size.


Getting it right from the start!

Did you know that having the wrong pre-treatment solution applied to your object can completely ruin the final product. You will be glad to know that each and every one of our staff have countless years of experience in the sector, so will always know what is best for you. This means that the final outcome will never leave you less than 100% satisfied, after all it is what we do best. If you head over to our ‘Pre Treatments’ page it explains it much more detail the process our team completes on a daily basis.


Transportation a problem? Not anymore!

We ensure that all the machinery and equipment our team invested in is able to be moved around for circumstances like this. This service is all part of our 100% customer satisfaction that we try to achieve when carrying out work for our customers. No job is too big or complicated for our team, with years of experience under our belts we are the right team for you.


Ever considered glass coatings?

Instead of having new coloured glass installed to your property, why not just colour the existing glass? This cuts the overall cost down considerably and takes much less time, especially if the new glass is being measured and then cut down. We offer solvent and waterborne glass coatings in a wide range of different colours for you to choose from. These coatings are durable, water resistant and extremely easy to clean; sounds too good to be true right?


Ever thought about Plastic Coatings?

Plastic coating an object gives it an extra layer of protection against general wear and tear. It has anti-corrosive properties, the coating acts as protection from shock and always leaves a seamless finish. This particular coating can easily be added to the most complicated and intricate of objects, unlike many others. The process is quick and simple so if the object is frequently in use this is the perfect choice for you.


Fancy a change?

Do you have uPVC windows and doors? Are you fed up with the boring white fame and what to change things up a bit? We supply a vast array of colours in our Kolorbond paint collection. This paint is weather-proof so will last year after year without deteriorating. Making the right decision can take time; you can send a picture of the windows in question to our team, they can add a chosen colour so you can see what it could look like for yourself before taking the plunge.


See for yourself

Allowing our customers to see previous projects we have completed is the best way for our team to showcase their skills and knowledge to potential customers. All jobs the team undertake are carried out with precision and delicacy leaving the smoothest of finishes. We have the ability to restore objects from a discarded piece destined for the tip to better than the original. We always ensure the customers needs are met and the outcome is better than expected. If you would like to see some of our previous work please head over to our ‘Gallery’ page for pictures of our latest projects.


Expansion is key! 

Our company has expanded further than we could have imagined since it was established in a small warehouse in 2002. From then on, we have gone from strength to strength and our team are offering more services than ever before. One of our most sought after services is adding Kolorbond to a vast variety of conservatories, doors and windows. Fancy having on trend grey window frames? Kolorbond can change the colour of frames at a fraction of the cost. We also pride ourselves on our coating applications; we always ensure all projects go above and beyond the expectations of the customers so they are happy with the finished outcome.


Preparation is key! 

Preparing a client’s object before we add their choice of coating is the key to getting the perfect smooth and shiny finish. For the larger objects we shot, or bead blast them. This is because it removes any existing paint or rust that has built up over time, this is in addition to treating the object with environmentally friendly Zirconium Phosphate. For the more delicate objects we handle we use an acid pickle process which isn’t has harsh as shot or bead blasting meaning it is suitable for all materials and objects.


Not sure on the colour to choose? 

Making sure you choose the right colour to coat your object is a common worry that out staff come across when completing a vast range of jobs. This is why we offer samples for all of our available colours, so you are able to take them away to ensure you pick the right one. We have over 150 different colours that our customers can choose from and all choices can be applied to many types of surfaces including woods, plastics, and metals! We will have your object looking brand new in no time at all.


A quicker alternative to wet painting 

Do you need a quicker alternative to wet painting? Our team know very well that some don't simply have the time to wait for the wet paint to dry, especially if the object is a piece of much used equipment. That is why our team offer 'Powder Coatings' instead. These give the same glossy finish, are extremely resistant to any weather conditions, but at half the time. This type of coating can be applied to nearly all objects and pieces of equipment that you have. What's not to like? Take a look at our @Powder Coatings' page for more information.


Are your gates looking worse for wear? 

As we all know the British weather can be very unpredictable and our gates and railings have to battle with all types of weather. Over the winter your gates may have deteriorated and are now looking like they have seen better days. To restore them back to their former glory our team can carry out a simple treatment process to leave them looking as good as new. We shot blast the gate, treat it with zinc, add a powder coat and the job is done, it really is that simple.


Not sure on what coating is the right one? 

Wood coating can be applied to a vast number of objects to give them a cleaner finish or to make them last longer. For boat and car interiors we offer a polyester base coating as it makes the wood durable even after lots of wear and tear. We also offer water or oil-based polyurethane coating; the water-based choice is for objects that are usually kept inside, and the oil based for ones that have to bear the brunt of what mother nature throws at it. The oil option is additionally heat resistant and much more durable than the water based one.


Wheels need love too! 

Are you tired of trying to scrub your wheels to get a better finish only for them to look exactly the same a week later? Did you know that powder coating your wheels will bring them back to their former glory? The process is actually very straight forward and will be completed in no time; the wheel is firstly stripped and then shot blasted to its original surface, the powder coating is then added in any colour of your choice. This process can be carried out on motorbike to much larger tractor wheels and anything in between.


What is Hydrographics? 

Using hydrographics to coat your object is the best process when the object in question is not very flexible. The process is simple as it involves putting the object through a film of ink that lies on the surface of some water, but any variation and it will not coat flat. Many objects, even 3D ones can be coated; we add hydro-graphics to many objects, such as bike helmets, alloy wheels and car parts. Our team are also able to coat ceramics, plastic, wood and metal objects. This process always leaves a shiny, high-quality finish leaving the object looking brand new.
