FAQs

What is powder coating?

Powder Coating is the process of applying dry, coloured pigment using a slight electric charge onto a ground metal object which is then cured in an oven to form a hardened skin of colour. It is a widely used method within a number of industries  however not many people have heard of it. It is a more cost effective solution compared to the traditional "wet paint" method. Many manufacturers, designers and architects would prefer powder coating because of the high quality finish, strength and longevity (up to 25 years!) 

Can you guarantee the perfect finish?

We believe in the power of people and not machines! This means we cannot always guarantee a perfect finish, however we will try our best to achieve it. There can be a few factors that contribute to the quality of the finish and we make sure we follow high standards and processes to offer customers a high quality service. Our team will always communicate any issues or problems we are having throughout the process so you are well informed.

When can I pick up my bike?

Our usual lead time is up to 2 weeks for powder coating the frame and forks. However this can vary during busier periods. We will charge a storage fee per week if the bike is not collected within the agreed time frames. 

Can you spray Carbon Fibre?

Unfortunately the powder coating process only works with metal materials. Carbon Fibre would ruin during the sandblasting and heating stages and can only be wet-sprayed. 

Can I get other items powder coated?

Yes! We have facilities to powder coat non-bike related items. Remember, if it's metal, it can be powder coated! Give us a call or send us an email with your requirements and one of our team members will be happy to help!
