Plasticized metal

Oven dimensions:

Line 1: 950x1500x6900 mm (semi-automated line)
Line 2: 1500x2000x3000 mm (automated line oxy fuel)
Line 3: 1800x2500x3500 mm (manual line)

Metal plasticization means excellent joining of the substance with the base layer and is characterized by high chemical and thermic resistance.

In the first stage the object is meticulously cleaned. Removing old varnish and corrosion damage is very important. Only thorough preparation work will ensure a perfect result in later stages. It is vital to emphasize that in this process only the latest technologies and state-of-the-art substances are used.

In the main stage, air pressure is used to spray the polyester powder onto the electrostatically processed components. Electrostatic forces of attraction ensure that the necessary amount of powder remains on the treated object. Due to the electrostatic effect, the powder is evenly dispersed on the entire surface (even on the least accessible places, that would otherwise not be covered by lacquer using general methods).

The polyester powder is melted in a special oven, so that a film is formed, providing efficient protection from various environmental factors and mechanical load.

Metal plasticization can be used to achieved all known surface effects, such as glow, matte, structural, and metallic effects. We can meet any demands concerning plasticization color: standard RAL colors, NCS, but we also offer exclusive and special colors, based on our customers’ requirements.

No additional chemical substances or thinners are used during the electrostatic plasticization process, the excess powder, the so-called overspray, is reused, ensuring that this method has no harmful effect for the environment.

The plasticization process consists of the following 5 steps:

  1. Treatment of the metal surfaces, i.e. cleaning the surfaces so that there is no corrosion, old paint residue, oil, or acid left. This is done with special chemical processes and tools;
  2. Spraying the cleaned and treated metal surfaces with coat using high pressure compressors;
  3. Oven-baking the sprayed metal surfaces in heat chambers at a set temperature for a given period of time;
  4. Cooling the final products, possible decorative post-production;
  5. Obligatory, thorough quality control.

Advantages of electrostatic plasticization:

  • A highly cost-effective method of metal protection and metal surface protection
  • Great protection from corrosion (up to C5 corrosion class)
  • Great resistance to various mechanical impacts
  • Great flexibility
  • Resistance against chemicals
  • Resistance against natural impacts
  • Good electrical insulation characteristics
  • No environmental pollution
