DID YOU KNOW
All commercial buildings of 4 stories or higher require warranty powder coat application as per AS3715.
Many of the kit form DIY style balustrade systems frequently used in today’s commercial projects require all components to be cut on site for installation and screwed together.
Unless all cut (raw edges) are treated then any warranty that would normally be associated and supplied by the Powder Suppliers and the licenced applicator would be invalid.
Aluminium Balustrades – Your One-Stop-Destination from Design Concept to Final Product Installation
All our powder coating is applied in-house by our powder coating company S.P.C. Southport Powder Coating.
All Powder Coating performed complies to AS3715.
As SPC and Aluminium Balustrades are located in the same premises we are able to provide the quick turnaround times that are always required in the construction industry.
SPC is fully accredited and licenced to apply Warranty Powder Coating by the two major supply companies: Dulux – Interpon.
For warranty applications each and every project needs to have application forms filled out and sent to the powder supplier before application commences. All QA requirements are forwarded with this application and test panels are run with each oven, tested and stored in our premises.
Our pre-treatment tanks are some of the largest in the industry and allows us to pre-treat many awkward shapes and sizes which are standard in the construction industry.
We employ an independent chemical company (Henkel) to carry out the testing of our Acid/Chromate/Water quality on a fortnightly basis.
This independent audit is then recorded and provided to us for our records.
Care & Maintenance of Powder Coated SurfacesThe effects of ultra violet light, pollution, dirt, grime and salt deposits can all accumulate on your powder coated surface over time. To extend the effective life of powder coatings, as a general rule cleaning should take place every 6 months. However, in areas where pollutants are more prevalent, especially in immediate coastal regions, a cleaning program should be carried out on a more frequent basis (i.e. every three months).
To clean your powder coated surface
- Carefully remove any loose deposits with a wet sponge.
- Use a soft brush (non abrasive) or cloth, and a mild household detergent solution to remove dust, salt and other deposits.
- Rinse off with clean fresh water.
Detergents that recommend the use of gloves when handling should be avoided as this is a good indication that the detergent is harsh and therefore, unsuitable for cleaning your powder coating.
Although some strong solvents are recommended for removing sealants or other building residues, these may be harmful to the extended life of the powder coated surface and should also be avoided as the damage may not be visible immediately and may take up to twelve months to appear. If paint splashes, sealants or other residue need to be removed, then either Methylated Spirits, Turpentine, or White Spirits may be used safely.
