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.

Why not try glass coatings?

Why not simply colour the existing glass on your house instead of having new coloured glass installed? This lowers the overall cost and saves time, especially if the new glass is measured and then cut down. We provide a large selection of solvent and aqueous glass coatings in a variety of colours for you to pick from. These coatings are long-lasting, water-resistant, and incredibly simple to clean, sound too good to be true?

Failing to prepare is preparing to fail!

We have a number of pre-treatments that we use to prepare to surface of an object before painting or spraying. For delicate objects we use an acid pickle that is much gentler on the object. For projects that need rust or paint removing we usually use a shot or bead blast process. In addition, we also use Zirconium Phosphate, which is environmentally friendly. To find out more about our preparation and painting services please give our team a call.

Choosing the right wood coating

Here at Impact Coatings we offer two main types of wood coatings depending on what the object is used for and where it is stored. If the object is mainly stored/used indoors then we use a water based polyurethane coating and for items kept outside the oil polyurethane coating is used as it is heat resistant and much more durable than the water based option. On the other hand for projects like car interiors or boats the coating we use has a polyester base which gives it an extremely durable layer of protection and will last for years to come.
