Steel Work Finishes & Colours

Hot Dipped Galvanizing
– to BS EN ISO 1461:1999 This treatment offers a low maintenance, long lasting finish for all types of environment. It is dull silver in appearance.

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.

Hot Dipped Galvanizing and Polyester Powder Coating

If requested, goods can be polyester powder coated on top of the galvanised finish to give a more durable resistance in extreme weather conditions. This does give the products a rougher texture than the standard powder coating due to the galvanized undercoat
