What is Metal Finishing

What is Metal Finishing?

Metal finishing is the process by which metals are coated in order to protect them from environmental risk factors which would affect their durability and intended function. Metal finishing usually involves coating the product with a compound which is resistant to moisture, temperature extremes, chemicals and contaminants from pollution.

What is Epoxy Powder Coating?

Epoxy powder coating is simply a coating which involves the use of epoxy compounds. Typically, epoxy resin is used along with a hardener to deliver a cost-effective coating that is anti-corrosive and resistant to moisture. Epoxy powder coating is frequently used to coat pipework and drainage channels.

What is Polyester Powder Coating?

As the name suggests, polyester powder coating involves covering the product with a thin layer of polyester-based coating material. Although less durable than some other coating options, the major advantage of polyester powder coating is that it comes in a wide range of colors, making it ideal for surface coverage.

What is Fluropolymer Coating

This involves using fluropolymers for coating materials. There are several benefits to using fluropolymers. These include low friction/non-stick/release, temperature resistance, and corrosion resistance. Fluoropolymers are ideal for industrial applications where low friction, heat, and corrosion protection are required.

Which Coating Provides Resistance to Corrosion?

Almost all coatings provide a high degree of corrosion resistance, as this is one of the primary functions of a coating in many circumstances. Your coating specialist can advise you on which coating is going to be best for your particular project.

What is Anti-Rust Coating?

Rust is oxidation caused by water interacting with a metal surface. A waterproof coating can prevent this reaction occurring, effectively becoming an anti-rust coating. Any coating which prevents the water reaching the metallic surface is an anti-rust coating.
