TOUGH BEAUTY

Powder Coating

Powder coating, once oven cured, becomes a solid and tough coating that adheres to the surface of a properly pre-treated substrate. Powder coatings can be made in a multitude of colours, with various lustres, textures and special effects. The great range of colour options make powder coating a versatile and popular choice.

Metrix Group will only use accredited applicators that offer official powder coat warranty certificates on completion of work. Warranty is calculated at completion of the project based on product, supplier, environment and substrate.

Features & Benefits

  • Low cost.
  • Large colour range.
  • Can be applied to a range of different substrates.
  • Custom colours are available made to order.

Anti Grafitti Powder

ANTI- GRAFFITI POWDER COAT

An anti-graffiti powder coating allows the removal of permanent markers and spray paint.

Features & Benefits

  • Can be applied to a range of different substrates.
  • Allows easy removal of most forms of graffiti.
  • Excellent solvent resistance.
  • Custom colours are available made to order.

CLASSIC OXIDE™

Classic Oxide is a new powder coat colour that has been created as an alternative to the popular weathering steel, best known under the trademark of Corten®.

Features & Benefits

  • Finish has a consistent tone and texture.
  • Can be applied to a range of different substrates.
  • Don’t need to wait 2-3 months for the panels to oxidise.
  • Doesn’t stain the surrounding area with oxidisation run-off.
  • Doesn’t need a sealer coating when being used in an internal application.
  • When applied to aluminium, it offers a lightweight alternative, resulting in reduced structural requirements for the cladding substructure, lowering the building cost.

ALUMINIUM ANODISING

Anodising is an electrochemical process that thickens and toughens the naturally occurring protective oxide in aluminium. Aluminium anodised finishes result in the controlled formation of a much harder, more durable and about a thousand times thicker than the thin oxide layer naturally formed. It has excellent tolerance in coastal environments and is available in a range of different colours.

Features & Benefits

  • Excellent tolerance in coastal environments
  • UV Stabilised
  • Environmentally friendly
NOTE: It is important to consider the variations of the Anodising process
  • Clamp marks.
  • Increased cost of application.
  • Naturally occurring colour variation.
