Powder Coating (including Pre-treatment)
We are one of the few approved powder coating applicators in NZ for all of the major powder suppliers. This means we are able to offer warranties from these suppliers. We coat using the world’s leading powders from Dulux, PPG & Interpon.
The Powder Coating Group offers premium quality powder coating finishes formulated and applied to provide outstanding durability in a variety of situations- from purely decorative to industrial and architectural applications in the harshest environments -high gloss, flat matt, smooth, rippled, textured, metallic, clear, and many, many other finishes including anti-grafitti, anti-mur and our new anti-microbial finishes.
We are experts in powder coating. We have the technical knowledge, the decades of experience and the specialist on-site facilities to deliver a prompt and professional finish every time.
With our extensive facilities ranging from a batch oven to our 25m continuous ovens, we are able to powder coat a wide range of items from standard aluminium extrusions through to steel and galvanised metal. And our comprehensive pre-treatment systems ensure the best possible preparation for any work we coat - giving you peace of mind for a long-lasting result.
Using an electro-static charge, a specially formulated powder paint layer is applied to your items, which are then heated in our commercial ovens; causing the powder paint layer to polymerise. Once cool, the powder coating layer provides an extremely tough and durable layer of protection against corrosion and abrasion. Your items are then carefully packed to your individual requirements for safe transportation.
With our onsite stripping unit we are able to chemically strip powder coating off previously coated metals, removing all traces of old coatings and, leaving your items completely clean and ready for powder coating.
Unlike over-coated metal, stripped and recoated architectural aluminium can still achieve mill finish quality levels in powder coated finish. After stripping, we protect the exposed surface from corrosion or deterioration by moving seamlessly to a chemical pre-treatment process and then finally apply the powder coat.
For items that cannot be powder coated we offer a wet spray service using paints that match our powder coats by our paint suppliers. We only use paint from reputable suppliers, applied to specification, to give you long lasting, quality results.
With our onsite wet spray booth, we can apply industrial level paint finishes, and offer up to 10 year warranties.
In order to offer our customers a complete ‘turn-key’ service our workshop offers a quality fabrication service for aluminium assemblies such as frames, louvres and motorised systems. If your assembly needs cutting, riveting, screwing, bolting etc. we can do it along with your powder coating and/or MetWood finishes, helping you reduce freight, packaging, admin, time and cost!
