Why not experiment with glass coatings?

Why not consider applying coloured coatings to your existing house glass instead of opting for the installation of new coloured glass? This approach not only reduces the overall cost but also saves valuable time, especially when precise measurements and cutting are involved for new glass. We offer a wide range of solvent and aqueous glass coatings in various colours for you to choose from. These coatings are known for their durability, water resistance, and ease of maintenance. Sounds almost too good to be true, doesn’t it?


Numerous benefits can come from using plastic

Applying a plastic coating to an object requires skill, and our team has extensive experience in various plastic coating projects. The advantages of a plastic coating are numerous, as it provides a seamless and aesthetically pleasing finish while ensuring exceptional durability. Its anti-corrosive properties make it suitable for both indoor and outdoor use. Especially beneficial for intricate objects with small crevices, like fretwork, a plastic coating proves to be highly useful in such cases.

Make colour work for you

Impact Coatings was founded in a small warehouse in 2002 so has been in operation a little over 20 years. In order to meet demand and grow the business, we have expanded our menu of services over time and hired and trained additional people. UpVC window painting with Kolorbond is one of our most recent research and development initiatives. Kolorbond, a very resilient paint that can change windows, doors, and conservatories, is something we are experts at utilising. View a few of the applications we’ve produced, then contact us for a quotation on your job.


Our different pre-treatment options

Before painting or spraying an object, we can prepare the surface with a variety of pre-treatments. We use an acid pickle for fragile objects since it is much softer to the object. We often utilise a shot or bead blasting procedure for applications that need the removal of paint or corrosion. Furthermore, we also make use of ecologically beneficial zirconium phosphate. Please give our staff a call if you would like more information about our preparation and painting services.


Which colour will you choose?

When it comes to selecting the colour for your freshly renovated object, you will be spoiled for choice. Did you know that there are more than 150 colours available for you to select from, and that you can take samples of each colour option with you to be sure it’s the right choice for you? All of the colour choices we offer to our clients may be applied on a variety of surfaces, including plastic, metal, and even wood! By working with our highly skilled staff, you’ll never be dissatisfied with the results.

Have you thought about using powder coating?

Any object, especially one that is used often, may be restored very well using powder coating. They leave behind a beautiful glossy surface and are extremely weather resistant, so they will last for many years.


Finding the right wood coating for you

Depending on the purpose of the item and its final location, Impact Coatings offers two primary types of wood coatings. We use a water-based polyurethane coating if the item is mostly used or stored indoors, and we use an oil-based polyurethane coating for objects kept outside since it is heat resistant and far more durable than the water-based choice. On the other hand, the coating we use for projects like boat interiors or automobile interiors has a polyester basis, giving it an incredibly robust layer of protection that will last for many years to come.


Is it time to freshen up your wheels?

Would you like to make a small improvement that will have a significant impact? Have you ever thought of having your car’s wheels powder coated? You can drive away right away when the procedure is finished since powder coating dries quickly and always produces an exquisite finish. Even the process is quick: when the wheels are disassembled and their original surface is revealed by shot blasting, the powder coating is added, and the work is finished! Actually, it’s that quick and easy. No matter the size, our team of highly qualified experts can apply powder coating.


How to make Hydrographics simpler

Adding a coating of ink to the surface of water and pushing the target object through it until it is covered is the method explained in its simplest form. This form of coating is ideal for products that are rigid or have a lot of small spaces that machines can’t readily access. We can cover a variety of 3D items, including automotive components and bike helmets, as well as wood and ceramic objects. This coating provides a high-quality finish that will last for many years.


The Perfect Finish

At Impact Coatings we have many options to prepare and paint your object a variety of ways one of which is wet spraying. This can be applied to multiple materials including copper, brass, zinc and steel to prolong the life of the piece and enhance its aesthetics. Wet spray can be dried quickly using our 80c heated spraybooths. If you have something that is large in size or has intricate detailing, wet spraying is the perfect solution to reach all those nooks and crannies. Need advice, give us a call.
