Now firmly established in powder coating, BGID brings its well earned reputation for experience, expertise and customer service into this new area. Operating from the Griffin Industrial Estate in Rowley Regis on the edge of Birmingham and in the very heart of the industrial West Midlands. We provide a local collection and delivery service to our customers, ensuring the highest standard of service and convenience.

 

Birmingham Garage & Industrial Doors Limited commissioned an RDM, state of the art, continuous process powder coating plant, with a Vixen 4 stage pre-treatment plant. This latter plant is particularly used where aluminium products require effective and thorough cleaning and phosphating prior to powder coating.

 

For larger and more cumbersome components and products, BGID offer a 3000mm. Waterwash spray booth, which is matched to a 3000 mm. x 2000 mm. Box Oven.

 

Birmingham Garage & Industrial Doors Limited has rigs for small components, or can accommodate materials up to 7.5 metres long  –  short runs or larger quantities are welcome. We can undertake straight forward sub assembly and finishing operations where required, thus reducing handling costs and lead times.

 

With over 180, colours and shades from the RAL standard range in stock, varying from Matt, or Semi-Gloss through to Gloss and some shades also in Textured finish, we can offer fast availability.

The Process

1. Pre-Treatment

2. Spraying the Powder

3. Curing

4. Packing & Despatch

A products or components life is significantly affected by the method used to prepare it prior to powder coating. BGID use a Vixen 4 stage pre-treatment plant – particularly when aluminium components are involved – ensuring complete removal of grease and other oily deposits, as well as phosphating the surface before powder coating, allowing BGID to achieve 450 salt spray hours on aluminium surfaces.

Pre-treated products are loaded on to a conveyor, and where appropriate are etch primed before passing through the RDM purpose built spray booth area. The booths are arranged in opposing format to ensure equal and even powder coating over all areas on the product. An electrical charge is applied to the powder as it leaves the spray gun, thus ensuring that it then adheres to the earthed product moving by on the conveyor.

Finally, products pass through the RDM variable temperature heat treatment plant, where the controlled application of heat causes the powder to form a layer several times stronger than traditional paint.

After curing and cooling, all products are visually inspected before being appropriately packed and wrapped before despatch. BGID can undertake straight forward sub assembly and finishing operations where required, thus reducing handling costs and lead times.

BGID offer a local collection and delivery service.

For larger and more cumbersome components and products, BGID offer a 3000 mm. Waterwash Spray Booth matched to a 3000 mm. x 2000 mm. Box Oven.
