Quality

The quality of our service is important to us. We operate a dedicated quality control department with two full time staff who ensure that nothing leaves without being inspected. We also work to the British Standards BS6496 (1984) and BS6497 (1984) as detailed below. Film thickness can be carried out on site, as can cross hatch testing.

Pre-Treatment, Powders & Baking


High quality coatings are assured through use of the best powders from Dupont and Akzo Nobel, which are applied to suitably pre-treated substrates. Our cleaning baths, chemicals and reagents are routinely checked and recalibrated to ensure the optimum surface conditions for paint adhesion. After application of the paint, coatings are dried or cured in temperature controlled environments in accordance with the paint manufacturers instructions, resulting in high quality long lasting

BS6496 (1984)


We adhere to the specifications laid out in BS6496 (1984) for powder organic coatings for application and stoving to aluminium alloy extrusions, sheet and pre-formed sections for external architectural purposes, and for the finish on aluminium alloy extrusions, sheet and pre-formed sections coated with powder organic coatings. The standard covers the requirements for coatings before and after their application. It also specifies the pre-treatment of the aluminium alloys.

BS6497 (1984)


We adhere to the specification laid out in BS6497 (1984) for powder organic coatings for application and stoving to hot-dip galvanised hot-rolled steel sections and preformed steel sheet for windows and associated external architectural purposes, and for the finish on galvanised steel sections and preformed sheet coated with powder organic coatings.

Dry Film Thickness Testing


Dry film thickness testing can be carried out where required.

Cross Hatch TestingCross Hatch Testing


Cross hatch testing can be carried out on site as required and is particularly relevant to coated aluminium items.
