FAQ

Why Choose Griffin?

We have gone the extra mile to provide our clients with a finishing & refurbishment service that is unrivalled. We have gone further than most coaters by installing a 5-stage pre-treatment wash system with a fresh water rinse, which is in addition to our 3-stage pre-treatment wash system, our batch paint and assembly services. This upgraded system ensures that our customer’s products are thoroughly cleaned and properly prepped for finishing.

What Is Powder Coating?

Powder coating is a dry finishing process where finely ground particles of pigment and resin are electrostatically charged and sprayed onto a grounded part. The part is then baked in a curing oven, at which time the powder melts, bonds and cures – leaving an attractive, uniform and highly durable finish. Prior to coating, parts are pre-treated to ensure optimal surface preparation and paint adhesion.

Why Should I Choose Powder Coating Over Liquid or Laminate?

Although Griffin can take care of both your liquid and powder coating needs, we suggest using powder coating whenever possible. Powder coatings offer a highly durable finish and can withstand the rigours of the outdoors much better than liquid coatings. Additionally powder coatings are eco-friendly as they release minimal Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC) into the environment, and are much more cost effective than liquid coatings; not to mention the variety of textures, colours and compositions available for the various applications.

What Are Your Colour and Texture Capabilities?

Regardless of your need – red, black, white, yellow, green, clear, flat, gloss, metallic, textured or fine textured or even anti-graffiti – Griffin Technology can help. Choices can be made from standard RAL stock colours and textures or you can provide us with custom specifications. The options are unlimited.
