I deal with powder coasters all of the time as part of my job.

Quality can vary from "nearly as good as coach paint" to "painted by David Blunkett, in a sand storm, with a fluffy stick".

As with most things in life, you get what you pay for.


I suspect, given previous form, will end up with the latter!:lol:


And a relentless tale of woe!:speechless:

I have just had some stuff dobe by a gut that only started up in march , media blast , primer coat , filler if needed then base , then laquer , git some parts back today they are good http://www.triumphpowdercoatingandblasti...

I think if we are going between the coachpaint and the tar brush I I suspect it will be the former

I sincerely hope that he is not "sandblasting" as he says on his website......it's been illegal since 1993!30

I think the correct terminology might be media blasting , I did not notice wagons unloading blackpool sand , when I visited

there again , maybe the man "on the street" understands sandblasting , and media blasting would go over his head

I walked into a place in Dartford the other day that was using Travis Perkins finest and no breathing gear.

Typical s!$%hole, full of East Europeans and a 10 year old Range Rover in the Director's parking space.

He was most put out as I walked out, phoning Environmental Health as I went.

I hate c!$%s like that.:angry:

I have been using this company for year s , not a lot of local choice round here http://www.tillingalloywheelrefurbishmen...

he has now moved over to wheel refurb , and getting him to do bike parts is now hard , 2 weeks 3 weeks , and think of a price when you get there

the quality has diminished to that of bit of covering on old wrought iron , the last frame he did is coated so thin , you can see the frame shining thru , NO WAY has a primer coat been used

I took the triumph guy a swinging arm , highly impressed and when fitted to the last frame tilly did , it now needs the whole frame redoing

yes I have used him in the past , his 200% surcharge because "I am a biker I have a norton - I know what I am doing" is most reassuring , however the powder flaking off the rim of a car wheel the first time it so a car wash was not

So what alternative medias are there Nick ?
As far as I was aware the company who blasted and powder coated my frame used some sort of sand base (they actually said they used sand as to not damage the surface as you would with grit ) . The media looked like a reddish sand to me .

If it was pink, it was probably Aluminium Oxide, or maybe Garnet.

Sand was banned because of the risk of Silicosis.

Sounds like it was aluminium oxide :thumbup:

I have personally used sand for blasting years ago (not much mind you), so unfortunately for me the damage is already done .

Same with painting , working with asbestos , sanding mdf , brick pointing , working with diesels , working with carbon black , the list is endless . I'm sure a lot of people on here will have been in contact with these potential materials or procedures , you can't change the past though
