The Anochrome Group provides expert powder coating solutions to clients around the world. Not only do powder coatings offer excellent resistance to corrosion, abrasion, impact and heat, they are also a highly attractive and durable finish.
What is powder coating?
Powder coating is a method of coating a part in a polymer powder using directional spray equipment.
The big difference between powder coating and wet spraying is that the wet spray principle requires a carrier or solvent to allow the material to be successfully atomised and transferred from gun to substrate. Whereas with powder coating, the powder is carried out of the spray equipment with low pressure air and is drawn towards the substrate via an electrostatic charge. The powder is then cured via an oven, which flows the powder out across the surface of the substrate, fusing the particles together in a chemical crosslink.
The Anochrome approach to powder coating
Anochrome Technologies operates a manual powder coating facility utilising manual spraying equipment. The materials used are epoxy, polyester or hybrid system powders from one of the world’s largest suppliers Akzo Nobel, and are chosen to meet the needs and requirements of the range of industrial and automotive specifications that exist in the marketplace.
Pre-treatment, which is critical to obtaining a robust finish, is carried out within the Group’s facilities and can be in the forms of passivation, anodising, phosphating, grit-blasting or electro-coating prior to application.
