Powder coating is an electrostatic coating method that utilises fine powder to create a protective coating.
Unlike conventional liquid paint finishes, powder coating results in no wastage of material. Any powder that does not stick to the product can be relaimed and reused.
DECO Australia uses Dulux Rapidcure powder in its powder coating applications. This powder is completely lead-free. We are also working towards becoming Qualicoat approved and accredited for our powder coating’s durability and resistance to extreme conditions.
Our DECO powder coatings offer a variety of surface textures ranging from textured flat finishes to high gloss finishes. Powder coating allows for many different surface textures that cannot be achieved through other surface finishing methods. Different textures can be achieved using different powders. Specially textured finishes can be achieved with textured powder. A ‘ripple’ effect can also be achieved by mixing an additive with the powder before the product is coated. See examples of our different finish textures and gloss levels below.
All our powder coated products are tested in our Quality Testing lab to make sure they conform to Australian Standards.
