Our 10,500 square feet factory unit has a large indoor working area as well as a large concreted yard to the front allowing for easy loading and unloading of large loads.
In our purpose-built spray booth 15m long by 5.5m we can apply a wide variety of protective and decorative coatings in house, following an abrasive blast cleaning session. These range from solvent free, anti-corrosive, weldable primers, single and two pack finishes, metallics and textured finishes to name but a few.
Our main Spray booth is fitted with high and low-level lighting and a recirculating heated air system to maintain a constant temperature throughout the coating application and curing process. Being able to maintain the environment is very important to provide a documented record of ambient air temperature, steel temperature, dew point and humidity throughout the curing process for quality control.
Randell are able to work in house or on-site for industrial cleaning and painting projects too.
We can also hire coating equipment to you, such as conventional spray guns and the Graco MK 5 airless pump, so you can carry out your own spray coating process.
We have recently installed a new wet back booth approx. 4m by 4m by 2.5m high, this is used mainly for our powder coating and stove enamelling oven work.
A powder spray gun which when triggered, causes an electrostatic charge to be attached to the powder particles passing through it. Because the parts to be coated are grounded or earthed, the powder is attracted towards the part via the electrostatic process. This process also helps the powder reach hard to access areas due to the “magnetic attraction” between the positively charged powder and the earthed part.
We can apply powder coatings to a variety of items and parts, including car parts. See our Automotive and Restoration Services for more information.
Once the powder is applied, the parts are cured in an oven which melts and cross-links the powder over the surface of the part and creates a tough, smooth and scratch resistant surface.
The choice of powder is a very important factor depending on the environment and use of the product to be coated. Each different type of powder has its own properties making it more suitable for a specific task.
There are many different types of powders on the market – the most common being Polyesters, Epoxy powder coating and Epoxy polyesters with many more variants available.
Custom finishes are available upon request, so feel free to get in touch with Randell to discuss your options!
