Painting & Powder Coating

Painting & Powder Coating

Radley Engineering has a 650m2 painting facility complete with a large 22m2 2m high powder coating oven which allows us to coat large fabrications and pipework to all client specifications.

Painting

At our on-site painting facility, we can complete the painting of almost any fabrication. Our painting facility offers a variety of finishes, including matte, semi-gloss or gloss. We offer a wide range of colours and can therefore match to your specific colour requirements.

Our on-site painting facility employs:

  • Spray Units
  • Heaters
  • Controlled Environment
  • Calibrated Equipment (recorded on daily paint record reports)

Prior to painting, all products are blasted to remove any containments.

The Priming Process

  • The surface is prepared by abrasive blast.

  • The surface is then cleaned insuring that it is free from any lose particles.

  • Our highly skilled team insure the painting environment/metal surface is above the minimum temperature specified by the paint manufacturer.

  • Primer is applied to the vessel/equipment by means of airless spray to the required thickness.

  • Primer is applied to the blasted surface prior to visible re-rusting or within 4 hours, whichever is sooner.

Powder Coating

Radley Engineering offers a dedicated powder coating service with a state of the art powder coating oven. Powder coating forms a much thicker layer than painting, meaning only one coat is needed and it provides a matte finish. Radley Engineering have a wide range of colour options available for powder coating to match your specific requirements. Unlike painting, powder coating does not involve the use of solvents or volatile organic compound, making it a more environmentally friendly option than painting.

The Powder Coating Process

  • The first step involves the blasting of the product in order to remove any dust, oil, rust or other containments.

  • The powder coating is then applied using an electrostatic gun.

  • Once the product is sprayed with the powder, it is placed into our state of the art powder coating oven.

  • The final step is the curing process, where the product is placed is baked in the oven until it is completely cured.
