Used on both e-coated or bare metal surfaces, powder coating involves the application of dry powder to electrostatically charged components for high-quality finishes.
Components are initially cleaned and pre-treated before being oven dried to remove any moisture. The powder is then applied before the components are oven cured where the powder melts, flows and crosslinks, forming a smooth, even coating.
Powder Coating Coventry
FP Advanced Coatings Limited operates two powder coating lines, installed in 2012 and 2016, allowing a variety of component sizes and batch quantities to be efficiently and cost-effectively coated. Garden furniture, architectural products, automotive and construction vehicle components, alloy wheels, and domestic radiators are just a few of the products that have been powder coated on the two lines.
Equally, our team is also able to meet a customer’s coating or performance specification down to the preferred colour, finish, temperature resistance and gloss level.

What is powder coating?
Powder coating is a process that involves spraying powder onto a surface. It is used to provide decoration, protection and durability to the items. Utilising powder coating creates a more solid finish than conventional paint.
How does powder coating work?
The powder is sprayed using an electrostatic gun which has two electrodes. The gun is connected to an electric power supply which provides the necessary voltage difference between the two electrodes. The air pressure generated by the gun forces the powder through a nozzle and onto the surface of the object being coated.
