Shotblasted & Powder Coated Chassis Work –
Before blasting work the chassis are steam cleaned to remove salts oil and general contaminants. Once blasted a full check is carried out for rust damage, broken welds or fitting.
After careful preparation and paying attention to detail powder coating can match most wet paints on items as this with the added bonus of outlasting wet paint by years. This product used is impervious to oil grease, brake fluid, road salt, and most corrosive chemicals. Resistant to stone chipping and very flexible. Highly recommended for any under body work.
Coating materials can be one of several choices.
1. Self healing powder coat primer coat and a epoxy polyester finish coat with a large colour range.
2. Plascoat PPA-571, this product does not require a primer coat, however we do apply two coats. Plascoat is hard wearing and chip resistant. It also has the added benefit of extreme flexibility and is very resistant to acids, salts and any automotive fluid.
3. Ab-site a DuPont product extremely tough but limited to a few colours.
We would recommend Plascoat for every day use vehicles or Epoxy polyesters for a pleasing finish for show or classic vehicles.
