Our Processes

Our clients Incoming products are photographed and logged into our data system for specification, required delivery time, special requirements etc. All jobs are tracked from start to finish.

Large Aluminium items, i.e ute service bodies, camper trailers, oversize gates and screens etc are hand spray treated with a etch/chemical conversation pretreat. Standard size items, extrusions etc are treated in our 316 SS pretreatment dip tanks. They go through a Clean/Degrease/Etch/rinse process. Items are then dipped in the nontoxic Chrome 3 conversion tank, this forms a bare metal protective coating for raw aluminium as well as a base primer coat for powdercoated aluminium. Finally items are dipped in our reverse osmosis (ultra clean) rinse tank, while only mandatory for high end warranty coatings we rinse everything through this tank to ensure the best finish possible to all our work.

Any steel product is abrasive blasted to a specified profile.

Items are then suspended on our overhead transfer system for transfer into the powder spray booth, 2 computer controlled GEMA powder application guns ensure efficient electrostatic coating.

Steel products are always zinc powder primed and we recommend any Aluminium product within 1.0 klm of the ocean should be E primed base coated, before the final coat application. This process can be modified to suit customers specification.

Uncured, sprayed products are moved via the overhead transfer system into our fan forced oven, it’s one of the largest and most efficient of its type in the region. Oversize gates and architectural screens, tandem axle RV trailers, vehicle service and ute bodies, any fabricated product up 9m long x 3.9 m wide can be accommodated for the curing process. The oven is continually graphed for temperature to ensure even curing for all coatings.

Clients will receive notification by their preferred method to arrange for pick up or delivery.

Cured products are moved out of the oven for the cooling stage, then wrapped into protective packaging ready for pick up or delivery.

We are happy to consult with specifiers, architects, engineers and builders to ensure they receive the most satisfactory outcome for coated products.
