ColoursThe following will help you determine the most suitable powder type for your product:


Epoxy powder coatings are recommended for use in interior situations where toughness, chemical resistance, and good mechanical resistance properties are essential. The protective properties of epoxy powder coatings are not impaired by exterior exposure, but chalking will occur progressively.

Applications include:

  • Laboratory fittings and fixtures
  • Machine Tools
  • Indoor Sports and Recreational Equipment
  • Industrial Racking Systems
  • Electrical cabinets, components and hardware.

Epoxy Powders are also available as ANTIQUE FINISHES in Gold, Silver Or Bronze and provide a highly decorative hammer type finish that is not only aesthetically pleasing but can mask product surface imperfections.
