Preparation and Powder coating Motorcycle parts.
Here at Maldon Shot Blasting & Powder Coating Ltd carry out work on motorcycle frames & parts to a very high-quality long-lasting standard.
Remember our motto (Do it once do it right) Our work will last you for many years to come, as powder coating is extremely chip resistant and tough finish over a stove or wet paint finishes.
We are aware that other’s offer a cheaper service, however, we DO NOT cut corners and offer a professional service and up to a fifteen-year warranty
Some folks have the opinion that stove enamelling is the best for the best finish, this is true to a point, however laying down a gloss powder coat and finishing with an acrylic crystal clear powder coat lacquer even the purists will be hard pushed to tell the difference. Samples of this work are available to view in our showroom or if you would like us to run a small sample of your work please call us to make arrangements.
A wide range of colours and special finishes are available. To view the standard ral colours please visit the following web site www.ralcolour.com.
There are flip and pearls, special effect lacquers and candy colours and now glow in the dark range, a world of choice, we can also offer any colour in two-pack or water base automotive finishes. Wet paints are recommended for items as Petrol tanks, mudguards, side casings, this is not to say they can’t be powder coated however wet paints always will give a better finish Please note fibreglass, carbon fibre & plastic parts cannot be powder coated.
We do not apply naked flames to strip off paint or decals as some do, this can give rise to local distortion with disastrous results.
1. Steel frames are dipped in an alkaline paint remover then a light blast clean to remove all remaining paintwork and any corrosion and allow for a first-class key for primer or first coating.
2. Aluminium or alloy frames will be bead or aqua blasted this is less aggressive over blast cleaning and yet it still gives the first-class key for the primer coat
3. Once the blast or bead cleaning stage is completed, the work visually checked over for damage as cracks, broken or poor welded joints.
4. Repair any corrosion damage by either using our Metfil manufactured especially for the use with powder coating or carry our welding work for the worst areas of damage. This will be considered as further work and extra charges will be made to achieve a well-prepared finish prior to the coating work.
5. The frame and other parts are placed into our Phosphating and wash plant for final and complete deep clean, the phosphate help further to etch into the work and therefore will give a far longer life. This is an optional extra and an extra charge is made for this service, however, this allows us to increase our warranty term to fifteen years. (Subject to terms & conditions)
6. Masking off, all the threads and raceways making ready for the primer coats. (subject to chosen level)
7. Apply our self-healing epoxy-polyester primer coat at an average of 50 microns per coat. (subject to chosen level)
8. Semi cured @130d cent.
9. Apply the colour coat of polyester powder and fully cure at 180d cent until both the primer & topcoat have fully bonded to the work. At this stage, we can apply either a further clear or special effect lacquer coats.
