Preparation is the key to success

I have written several times about the need for good preparation when powder coating.

We have just taken on a contract to strip off wet paint from steel balustrade panels. The finish was OK but the preparation was non-existent. The photos below tell the tale of a nicely designed balustrade whos' finish failed in weeks.

Key points:

  • Sharp edges will fail.
  • Welds need extra attention.
  • Suitable pre-treatment is not an optional extra.
  • Design with the end in mind.
  • Take advice 

Here at Powdertech we will give you good advice based on many years' experience. A call costs almost nothing but could save you £££££.
