The better finish: The Powder Coating Expertise of De-Met Colourcoat Ltd


Quality and efficiency are paramount in the world of surface finishing. For over 25 years, De-Met Colourcoat has been a trusted name, delivering impeccable powder coating solutions. Our 100-metre automated conveyorised line ensures that each project we undertake meets the highest standards of precision and durability.

Established over a quarter-century ago, De-Met Colourcoat has become a leader in the powder coating industry. A relentless commitment to quality and customer satisfaction has marked our journey. This enduring legacy is a testament to our expertise and the trust we've built with our clients over the years.

At the heart of our operations is our advanced 100-metre automated conveyorised line. This cutting-edge system allows us to handle large volumes consistently and efficiently. The automation ensures uniform product processing, reducing the risk of handling errors and enhancing the overall finish. Our manual powder coating method gives a personal touch of care and attention to detail to every order we receive. So, whether you have a small batch or a large-scale order, know that our technology ensures that every item gets the same high level of care and precision.

But why powder coat your items? Powder coating is renowned for its durability, environmental friendliness, and superior finish. Unlike traditional wet paint, powder coating provides a thicker, more even layer without running or sagging. This results in a more durable finish that resists chipping, scratching, fading, and wearing better than other finishes. We use iron phosphate for every item we powder coat, but if you want a superior, more sophisticated primer, we can use zinc, too.

Additionally, powder coating is an environmentally conscious choice. It contains no solvents and releases negligible amounts of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) into the atmosphere, making it safer for our employees and better for the environment.

  2. Treatment is broken into three stages. Iron phosphate and two cold water rinses. We treat all items with iron phosphate (QCS – T Phos) and De-greaser (WCS Solvoclean). For special items suitable for the outdoors, we can also apply a zinc primer to ensure appropriate and long-lasting adhesion. Phosphate and acidity levels are checked and logged daily. Additionally, Quality Chemical Services performs an external check weekly!
  3. Drying off process: Parts are dried through a 19ft convection oven at an average temperature of 90°C for approximately 7-8 minutes. This allows all the parts to be dry and ready to be sprayed
  4. Powder coating time! The powder is applied evenly to the surface using 2 x Wagner electrostatic manual box feed spray guns. It is applied in accordance with the powder supplier's guidelines, with thicknesses ranging from 45-85µm, or as specified by you.
  5. Curing: The coated items are stoved through a 43ft convection oven, causing the powder to melt and form a hard, protective finish.
