Maldon Shot Blasting & Powder Coating Ltd
Customer notice Regarding alloy parts to be powder coated
• Please note, in some cases alloy parts that show signs of corrosion can lead to problems as follows.
• All corrosion must be removed by blast cleaning this will normally leave pitting where the corrosion has eaten into the sub-straight.
• Powder coating alone may not deal effectively with the scaring, although it will give a very good and long lasting protection.
• If you the client require an “as new” finish, further work will be required and should be stated at the time of order.
• In some cases, our “Thermobond 3” filler will take care of this but it will reflect in the cost of the final invoice due to
extra labour and material costs. If the corrosion is to the point of being dire then we may refuse the work.
• Another option is to carry out two-pack work; however, this will be expensive due to the cost of labour and materials.
• Please also note that these problems are not immediately obvious at the time of presentation to us, if this is the case we will take steps to inform the client.
• Gassing out.
• In some cases, gassing out (release of gas from alloy parts under heat) can be a problem.
• This normally happens with older materials or poor castings or where corrosion has eaten in to the base. There is no real remedy for this except to allow the product some time to degas under heat in our curing ovens, this does not always work and if this is the case the only alternative with this problem is to wet paint the product. Again, this will reflect in the costs, as the process can be labour intensive.
• If you choose to ignore this advice, MSB will carry out the work at your own risk.
• Warrantee will only be for a period of twelve months or at our discretion where gassing out has accused.
• Prices and or estimates do not include charges for any extra repair work necessary to complete the work to a reasonable standard.
• We will contact you to explain should any of the above be the case with your work, and ask how you would like to proceed.
• This document forms a part of out terms & conditions.
• Does not effect your legal statutory rights.
