Powder Coating Processes - Magnesium
We have over a decade of experience in processing magnesium, used extensively in the automotive and aerospace industries. Die-cast magnesium used within light-weight structures reduces weight yet further, an important factor in markets with strict emission targets.
We use only high performance pre-treatments specifically designed for magnesium alloys and the latest automatic powder coating technology to ensure consistent coverage.
If you are an automotive Tier 1 then you will require not only a coating partner who can provide a robust, repeatable coating finish but someone you trust to act as extension of your business when interacting with your OEM. We believe that dependability and reliability form the basis of our relationship, that’s why we work hard to get to know you and your products so that you can trust us to deliver on your behalf.
We specialise in complex and demanding components – from small electronics housings to large high pressure die castings
You require a partner who will support you from design and prototype stage through to full production volumes. Our technical and consultative approach is there to assist you through this process.
We run a strict quality control regime, both with pre-treatment and coating systems. You can rely on us to provide you with the quality that you would expect from a Syntha Pulvin approved applicator
Typical items we coat include front end carriers (FECs), grille opening reinforcements (GOR), rear lift gates.
Pre-treatment for Magnesium
We use only chrome-free pre-treatments in our plant and were the first powder coater in the UK to do so, back in 2001. We have extensive experience in these safe and effective systems.
Automotive: We operate all large automotive OEM approved magnesium chrome-free pre-treatment systems.
Aerospace: Gardobond X4729 eleven-stage chrome-free pre-treatment (also known as Ardrox 1769) is used for aerospace-approved magnesium alloys to class L (with top coat) or class S (no top coat) specification.
