Originally developed in the 1950s, powder coating as a finishing method has gone through significant developments and changes over the past 70 years. Through progression in technology, the powder coating process that we use here at UK Powder Coating Services today is extremely advanced and well-refined, with the capability to coat a variety of products for different industries. With over 30 years of experience in the method, our expert team ensure that each project we complete is completed to a superior standard, with a durable and unformed finish.

Electrostatic Spray Technique

The origins of powder coating are rooted in environmental concerns, with the popularity of solvent-based liquid paints at the time. By the mid-1950s, a German scientist named Dr Erwin Gemmer had patented the idea of applying a fluidised bed of thermoplastic resins onto metal. Powder coating, as it became known, quickly spread in popularity around the world, due to the practical benefits of the resistant coating. New technologies in application were continuing to be developed, with the introduction of electrostatic spray guns, a method that we continue to use today here at UK Powder Coating Services.

Our High-Tech Production Line

Continuing to be refined in the decades that followed, the powder coating process is now a highly advanced system. The fully automated production line in use at our dedicated facility in Haverhill, Suffolk allows a continuous movement from pre-application through to the curing process. This allows us to cater for a large capacity of items, and ensures that we can meet the deadlines of our clients. With a built-in recycling centre, any excess paint is entered back into the system, keeping our waste output and environmental impact low.
