Plant list

  • 6 metre Autowash
  • Powder Booth
  • ITW Gema Optiflex B powder guns

The Autowash degreases the product and also pre-treats the metal with an iron phosphate to give an exceptional key for powder to adhere to.

Powder is applied by our experienced operators using the industry leading ITW Gema guns giving extremely impressive results.

The Powder coating unit coats a very high percentage of our sheet metal and some wire stands for customers. It gives greater flexibility when it comes to choice of colour and some textured or specialised finishes
