Our different pre-treatment options

Before starting the process of painting or spraying an object, we possess the capability to thoroughly prepare the surface using a range of pre-treatment methods. For delicate objects, we opt for an acid pickle, as it offers a gentler approach, ensuring minimal impact on the object’s integrity. Alternatively, applications necessitating the removal of paint or corrosion often require a shot or bead blasting procedure. Additionally, we incorporate environmentally friendly zirconium phosphate, further emphasising our commitment to sustainable practices. Should you require further information regarding our preparation and painting services, please do not hesitate to contact our knowledgeable staff. They will be delighted to provide you with comprehensive details tailored to your specific requirements and preferences.

Have you thought about using powder coating?

Is your equipment showing signs of wear and tear around the edges, but you find yourself lacking the time to arrange for another round of painting? You might find it intriguing to discover that there exists a faster alternative to wet painting, one that has the potential to rejuvenate your item in approximately half the time it takes with traditional methods! Powder coating presents a swift and efficient solution for refurbishing any object, particularly those subjected to frequent use. This method ensures a flawless finish, leaving behind a remarkably beautiful glossy surface. Powder-coated items exhibit exceptional resistance to various weather conditions, promising durability and longevity for many years to come. Unlike liquid paints, powder coatings do not contain volatile organic compounds (VOCs) or hazardous air pollutants (HAPs), making them environmentally friendly and safer to use.

Finding the right wood coating for you

Impact Coatings takes pride in showcasing a diverse range of two primary types of wood coatings. In instances where the item predominantly sees indoor use or storage, our preference tends towards a water-based polyurethane coating, renowned for its adaptability and indoor applicability. For items exposed to outdoor conditions, where resistance to heat and heightened durability are important, our choice is the robust protection offered by an oil-based polyurethane coating, surpassing its water-based counterpart in terms of longevity and resilience. The selection of coatings for specialised items such as boat interiors or automobile interiors adopts a distinctive form – a polyester-based coating, chosen for its outstanding strength, ensuring a robust and enduring layer of protection that withstands the test of time for many years to come.

Simplifying the process of Hydrographics

In its most straightforward explanation, the process entails applying a layer of ink onto the water’s surface and submerging the target object until it is thoroughly coated.

Our expertise extends to coating a diverse array of three-dimensional items, spanning from automotive components and bicycle helmets to wooden and ceramic objects. The versatility of this method ensures its efficacy in covering various surfaces, providing a high-quality finish that boasts longevity over many years. The application of ink onto the water’s surface, coupled with the precision of the immersion process, yields a uniform and durable coating that enhances the aesthetic appeal and durability of the treated objects.
