Flare powder coating

Extrusions, windows, doors, curtain walling, cladding and rainwater goods are just some of the products we specialise in coating for the construction industry.

Process
In order to correctly specify a powder coat finish it useful to understand the basic process of powder coating as finish failure, as rare as it may be, is often not the failure of the powder finish Pre-Treatment
Aluminium supplied direct from the extrusion process is often contaminated with oil and other residues which will affect the longevity of the final coating. Unfinished aluminium supplied from stock will have traces of natural oxidisation on the surface. It is Vital therefore that FPC Pre-treatment is correctly carried out to a very high standard.
The vast majority of powder coat failures can be put down to poor or inconsistent Pre-treatment methods. The Pre-treatment offers to main benefits. Offers an air and watertight seal to the aluminium. Offers a good key surface to the powder to adhere

High temperature tapes use synthetic rubber resin adhesives which means they can withstand oven temperatures upto 160°C making them suitable for powder coating, stove enamelling and force dry applications.

Caps are available for masking threaded components both with or without flanges and are ideal for preserving threaded studs, tube ends and earthing points. Plugs are ideal for threaded and non-threaded through holes.
