Powder Coating Portsmouth Aviation boasts a fully equipped powder coating facility and our experience ranges from defence, industrial, marine, and aerospace. More recently, we have been supplying anti-bacterial coating for medical devices. The electrostatically applied powder is stored in an oven until cured, creating a strong and durable coating that provides excellent corrosion resistance. Our stock is comprised of large quantities of standard colours, and we have the capacity to provide specialist colours, gloss levels and textures. They are environmentally friendly as they do not contain solvents and emit minimal amounts of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) into the atmosphere. Secondly, powder coatings create a robust and durable finish that is typically tougher than liquid coatings. Additionally, they allow for the application of thicker coatings without the risk of running or sagging, providing enhanced protection. Furthermore, powder coatings enable the attainment of a wide range of specialty effects that would be impractical with alternative coating methods. Finally, the curing time for powder coatings is considerably faster than that of liquid coatings, ensuring efficient and rapid production processes.
Thermal Spray Thermal spraying is a process that involves melting two wires using an electric arc, which are then atomized and sprayed onto a substrate using compressed air. Portsmouth Aviation employs a twin arc spray method to mitigate thermal loading, ensuring the sprayed surface remains intact. This process achieves high-quality coatings while preserving the structural integrity of the substrate. We offer metal spray options, including zinc and aluminium coatings. Metallisation’s Arctec 28E is a cutting-edge thermal spray coating known for its exceptional corrosion protection and wear resistance. This advanced metalizing technology ensures uniform and dense coatings with excellent adhesion properties. Arctec 28E is widely used in industries such as marine, oil and gas, aerospace, and infrastructure to safeguard critical components and structures from harsh environments. In a recent project, Portsmouth Aviation utilized Arctec 28E in the innovative collection hall of the new V&A East Storehouse. Our engineers applied the thermally sprayed non-slip coating to the flooring of this multi-story architecture, demonstrating the versatility and effectiveness of the Arctec 28E coating in real‑world applications. Wet Spray The wet spray paint process involves the application of liquid paint onto a product, providing both an appealing appearance and protective coating. This is achieved using a specialised spray gun that atomizes the liquid paint, breaking it down into fine particles for an even distribution onto the targeted surface. Typically, the paint is mixed with a solvent or waterborne solution to achieve the desired viscosity for proper application. Our expertise lies in delivering exceptional coatings that not only enhance aesthetics but also offer long-lasting durability. The wet spray paint process is a meticulous and essential method used to enhance the visual appeal and protectiveness of a variety of products. By employing careful surface preparation, precise application, and adequate curing, this technique ensures a professional and durable finish.
