Polyester Powder Coating
Powder coating has excellent outdoor exposure qualities, as well as offering an attractive consistent appearance in a variety of colours.
The importance of the finish is not only the visible top coat, but, equally, the pre-treatment of the steelwork. All Apex products are shot blast to SA2.5 to degrease the surface and provide a key for the subsequent processes. The steel is then etch primed with Zinc Phosphate anti-corrosive Primer then the final coat of Polyester Powder is electrostatically sprayed onto the surface to a thickness of 80 – 110 microns. The treated steelwork is then heat-cured, melting the Polyester Powder into a continuous phase and bonding it into the steelwork. Polyester Powder Coating provides a high durability and high resistance to weathering plus excellent colour stability.
