Powder coating is by far the youngest of the surface finishing techniques in common use today. It was first used in Australia about 1967. Powder coating is the technique of electrostatically applying dry paint to a part as against normal wet paints.
Wet paints are predominantly solvents which evaporate into the atmosphere causing environmental concerns.
Powder Coatings on the other hand are 100% solids which electrostatically adhere to the component to form a hard coating similar to that of 2-pack wet paint.
In order to provide good adhesion all parts are first pretreated and etched through an iron phosphate wash and a non chromate seal before being dried, sprayed and cured.
Using the latest materials and technology, our processes are capable of achieving over 1000 hr salt spray resistance on many substrates.
As part of our service, we at Polydip can also provide an assembly and packing service if required.
We can powder coat a range of sizes from small brackets to large frames up to 4 metres long.
As part of our quality system all processes are closely monitored to ensure the customer always gets the best quality possible.
