Functional Powder Coatings

We define this class of powder coatings as those where the function of the coating is of primary importance, and the decorative function is secondary. The coatings tend to be thicker and some are applied to a hot substrate (fusion bonded). Careful and precise application is vital for these high performance coatings. Skilled operatives give personal attention to ensure optimum performance. For the more exotic our specials department will provide a top quality bespoke service.
