Coating


A part may require coating to match a body colour or have a clear lacquer to protect the composite from UV degradation.

Once the part is fully constructed the surface is prepared by abrading. This is undertaken by hand in our coating preparation area with the use of air driven sanders.

All parts are thoroughly degreased to remove unseen particles and agents prior to coating.

Parts are moved to the spray booth and coated in full colour or clear lacquers in either gloss or matt finish. To ensure the part is coated to the highest standard it will have to go through a number of cycles from abrasion to coating. Once it meets the correct standard the part is highly polished.

This is a labour intensive element of the process undertaken by our skilled technicians to meet our high standards and that of our clients. Once this process is complete the product is passed to final inspection.
