Powder Coating Process
Powder Coating is a type of coating that is applied as a free-flowing dry powder to a substrate - usually aluminium. Once the powder has been applied it is cured under extreme (200°C) heat to form a "skin" and gives a harder and more durable surface than a traditional paint.
Ashby uses architectural polyester based powder as standard, and coats to a thickness of 70µ - 40 more than the required minimum. Ashby's powder coating is resistant to abrasive chemicals and sunlight and is stocked in 108 RAL colours, in addition to Pantone and BS Powders.
