Painted Metal Components

Specialist powder paint and wet paint processes are undertaken to meet the required customer standards.  Components pass through either a three-stage or five-and-a-half-stage pre-treatment process to ensure that they are fully degreased and chemically-coated, whilst laser cut parts are treated to remove the oxide layer on the cut edge, all to give excellent paint adhesion.
