At Yorkshire Powder Coaters we have over 40 years’ combined experience in the skilled technique of powder coating.
We work to British Standards and take great care to ensure that we meet and exceed customer expectations.
Our newly-refurbished premises feature the very latest equipment, including a brand new 6 metre oven, new spray guns and clean, efficient extraction systems.
We also have dedicated enclosed areas for washing and spraying to maintain a high quality product.
So you can be confident of a product and service that is second to none.
Pre-treatment for a smooth, even finish
Every item we coat is carefully pre-treated before the powder coating process begins, in order to ensure a superior finish. Aluminium items are acid-etched; whilst galvanised steel is degreased using T-wash.
This is performed in our wet room using a jet wash system, which means that there are no size restrictions – unlike other companies who degrease items by dipping them in a phosphate bath.
Next the item is primed with zinc before entering our spraying area for the base coat of powder.
The spraying process is undertaken in a dedicated enclosed area which is kept exceptionally clean. This keeps foreign bodies at bay and prevents grime pollution, to help achieve smooth, uniform coverage.
The item is then green cured in the oven at 140°C before the top coat of powder is carefully applied and then baked for a further 10 minutes at 180°C.
The result – an exceedingly smooth and durable finish.
Large capacity oven for powder coating
Our brand new state-of-the-art oven is one of the largest in the West Yorkshire area. Measuring 6 metres long x 2.5 metres wide x 2.5 metres high and at 7.2 metres corner to corner, it can easily accommodate larger items, such as sizeable gates, fence panels or railings.
