For all your Shotblasting & Powder Coating Projects
Preparation for Powder Coating
Prep work being the all important part of our work….
Shot blasting is a process used to clean surfaces back to the base material.
This is an essential part preparation work, as it removes all contamination as rust and corrosion and leaves a good clean surface for applying the primary first coats of powder coat or wet paint’s.
The process usually involves a nozzle with a high-pressure airline to deliver various types of media, or shot, at the object. This is a particularly effective method for removing scale, rust, paint, and minor surface flaws from metal objects.
Depending on the equipment and the type of material used, various surface finishes or textures can also be applied to a work piece for decorative purposes, or to prep the surface for paint.
The first video shows the application of pure zinc base coat, second video shows applying pure copper coat, this finish can be part polished or antique fluids applied to give that weathered look.
In the second video also you will see a hardwood sample being coated with a copper finish and again can be sanded or polished highlighting the raised wood grain. Zinc prime coat serves as a very effective anti corrosion coat that can be used on many items inducing car chassis, body panels, bike frames etc and is happy with any type of wet primer paints..
I was just wondering what you (UK) lads expect to spend on powder coating, i.e. how much would you think is reasonable for a crossmember or axle casing etc? Any feedback is much appreciated, cheers.... Taken from www.rallyesportescorts.co.ukread more
