We understand the importance of investment in quality and genuine commitment is essential. All of our powder coating works are done by well-trained powder coaters at our premises in accordance with our strict quality standards. The powder coating is better than regular liquid based painting because it can produce thicker layer, is cost efficient and also it is less hazardous than regular painting services.
We have a rigorous and accurate quality control testing procedure and undertake a number of tests before any work is processed out of our plant. These include cross hatch, cross cut, cure test, adhesion tests and also dry film testing.
We provide a fully manual quality testing procedure as this is more reliable than machine-based testing. This has been designed to complement the powder coating process by testing the thickness and adhesion of the powder to the finished product. This is to ensure that the powder coating process has been completed successfully in accordance with our strict quality procedure.
Our new powder coating plant accepts items up to 4000 mm long by 12000 heights by 700mm deep and bigger sizes could be accommodated. This plant has a seven stage pre-treatment system.

The six stage pre-treatment process consists of the following:
