Powdertech Surface Science has been using the latest Gardobond chrome-free pre-treatment systems for over a decade. We provide automotive clients with a cost effective Titanium Zirconium coating preparation to aluminium components prior to adhesive bonding. We have extensive experience with this technology and offer advice to clients on a project by project basis.
Conversion coatings provide corrosion protection and adhesion to the subsequently applied powder coating or adhesive system.
As an approved Syntha Pulvin architectural powder coater, Powdertech Surface Science specialises in applying the Syntha Pulvin polyester coating range to aluminium components and can offer up to 40-year guarantees on external projects.
Syntha Pulvin is available in a comprehensive variety of finishes, including gloss, satin, matt, metallic, pearlescent and texture, all with full architectural specification.
Powdertech Surface Science has worked in partnership with Keronite® for over ten years. The patented Keronite® process uses Plasma Electrolytic Oxidation (PEO) to transform the surface of light alloy aluminium and magnesium into a dense, hard ceramic with outstanding resistance to corrosion and wear.
Powdertech has the largest fully automatic Keronite® line in the world, which is currently used to process premium aluminium wheels for the cycle industry.
