Powder Coat 

Powder coating is a popular durable, corrosion-resistant and customisable finish for manufactured equipment. It offers a wide range of colours and finishes, providing a smooth and even appearance. It protects against rust, oxidation, and degradation from moisture and chemicals, making it ideal for harsh environments and heavy use. Additionally, powder coating is environmentally friendly, as it is free from solvents and volatile organic compounds (VOCs), ensuring a safer and more sustainable option.

Wet Paint 

Wet paint is a cost-effective alternative to other finish options, offering a versatile solution for enhancing the appearance and protecting surfaces. Wet paint finishes can be applied in a wide range of colours and textures, as well as being compatible with a variety of surfaces and substrates, including metal, plastic, and wood. Easy to touch up should damage occur, wet paint extends the life of equipment, reducing maintenance costs. A finished surface can provide additional benefits such as enhanced chemical resistance, UV resistance and abrasion resistance.


Electrocoat, known as "E-coat," provides excellent corrosion resistance, protecting equipment from rust, oxidation, and other forms of degradation. Forming a strong bond with the metal substrate, it provides long-lasting, uniform coverage, including hard-to-reach areas and complex shapes thanks to the electrostatic attraction that occurs during the coating process. Applied in a single dip process, E-coat This can be automated for large production runs reducing labour and material costs. Moreover, Ecoat is environmentally friendly as it does not contain solvents or emit volatile organic compounds (VOCs).


Galvanising coatings are very tough, able to withstand heavy use. Their long lifespan can provide protection from rust, oxidation, and other forms of degradation for decades, even in harsh environments. This can help reduce maintenance costs and extend the life of the equipment. Galvanising provides a distinctive and attractive finish to manufactured equipment, with a shiny, reflective surface or a duller, matte finish, depending on the application.
