Investment in providing full assistance with colour choice

Powdertech Corby has recently made significant investment in a dedicated swatches and sample booth to provide clients with metal swatches of the powder coating shades they are interested in. Clients can also send in a piece of their own metal and have it coated and returned as an accurate sample of the final colour they will achieve.

The samples booth is a miniature replica of our plant, with chrome-free pre-treatment systems, spray guns, suspension lines and ovens for curing to the same temperature as the main ovens. Swatches can be produced rapidly, without having to fit into the main production line and we are building up a readily available swatches store. Customers who have joined our Colour Library are sent swatches on a regular basis. The booth is adjacent to Powdertech’s testing laboratory so that samples required for testing can be rapidly processed.

We keep meticulous records of all coated samples supplied for a project and these can be re-ordered, even if a project has been delayed by months or even years. If you can’t recall the shade, name or RAL number that you used then we certainly can.
