Product Finishing

ASG is a recognised market leader in the expert application of advanced nylon powder coatings.

When compared with industry-standard epoxy polyester finishes, nylon powder coatings offer increased resistance to impact, abrasion, corrosion and chemicals, as well as being more hygienic and ecologically sound.

As we work with a wide range of applications, across a breadth of industries, we have adopted the highly versatile and cost-effective fluidised bed dipping process. This allows the nylon coating to be applied on all types of metals, with a controlled thickness of between 250-500 microns. Coating up to 2mm is also achievable, with minimal tooling costs.

The process starts with parts being thoroughly prepared for the dipping process. This includes cleaning, sandblasting and degreasing. They are then placed on a conveyor belt and fed through an oven to heat through to the correct temperature. The parts are then dipped in a fluidised bed, where the heat of the component melts the nylon powders, fusing them into a smooth continuous coating. The nylon powder we use is available in wide range of colours.

Examples of type of applications suited to the process include automotive interior parts, gas and water pipe connection rings, hand rails and the metalwork for stadium seating. In fact, the process is suitable for any metal part that requires a hardwearing and durable finish.

We are one of only a handful of companies entrusted to apply the exclusive Rilsan® Active anti-microbial coating, which help control the risk of bacterial contamination, especially in areas where high standards of hygiene and cleanliness are both a requirement and a responsibility.

The advantages of nylon powder coating:

  • The removal of fugitive emissions
  • Reduced thermal conductivity
  • Low friction coefficient
  • Mechanical strength
  • Durability
  • Wide colour range
