Polyester Powder Coating
About Powder Coating
Polyester powder coatings create a colourful, eye-catching finish for modern buildings and an elegant solution for heritage projects. The colour is applied using an electrostatic process which is then baked and cured, thereby having the environmentally-friendly advantage of being applied without the use of solvents.
JWD Powder Coat Facility
JWD provides dedicated polyester powder coating services to third party customers and clients throughout the UK, Europe and beyond. The powder coating of aluminium is the company's core competency but other materials can be coated by agreement and where relevant. Please call to discuss your individual requirements.
Powder Coating takes place at JWD's 22,000sq ft premises alongside the main fabrication facility. Application capability consists of batch production quantities ranging from small pieces up to 3m lengths x up to 1m drop, fed through an automatic track system and coated with mechanical reciprocators for speed and accuracy.
JWD has been a 'Service First' Associate since 2007 which is the name given to an elite network of industrial powder and wet paint coaters in the UK, that have been audited and approved by Azko Nobel's own quality assurance inspectors.
The auditing process not only involves a detailed inspection of the plant and the power coating process, but also takes into account the emotional aspects of dealing with a 'Service First' Associate, including the company’s approach to customers, the internal culture and communication, and its people orientation and delivery strategies.
Colours and Materials
JWD maintains a stock of all 135 standard RAL and BS4800 colours which can be specified in a choice of finishes including matt, gloss and satin. Special colours can be specified by consultation according to the project and timescales.

Disclaimer: to maintain the appearance and maximise the durability of powder coated finishes, regular cleaning and maintenance are required. The durability of powder coating is affected by environmental factors and the extent, frequency and quality of maintenance. The coatings manufacturer, Cromadex, compares these types of coatings to those on a car: cleaning and maintenance are required; accumulations of dust and dirt will permit degradation of the surface, as will physical damage, such as chips and scratches. Marine, polluted and other harsh environments can be very detrimental to powder coated finishes.
