Powder Coating

Powder coating is a type of coating that is applied as a free-flowing, dry powder. Unlike conventional liquid paint which is delivered via an evaporating solvent, powder coating is typically applied electrostatically and then cured under heat. The powder may be a thermoplastic or a thermoset polymer. It is usually used to create a hard finish that is tougher than conventional paint. Powder coating is mainly used for coating of metals, such as household appliances, aluminum extrusions, drum hardware, automobile, motorcycle, and bicycle parts. Because powder coating does not have a liquid carrier, it can produce thicker coatings than conventional liquid coatings without running or sagging, and powder coating produces minimal appearance differences between horizontally coated surfaces and vertically coated surfaces. Because no carrier fluid evaporates away, the coating process emits few volatile organic compounds (VOC). Finally, several powder colors can be applied before curing them all together, allowing color blending and bleed special effects in a single layer.

Hydrodipping

Water transfer printing, also known as immersion printing, water transfer imaging, hydro dipping, watermarbling, cubic printing, Hydrographics, or HydroGraphics, is a method of applying printed designs to three-dimensional surfaces. The resulting combinations may be considered decorative art or applied art. The hydrographic process can be used on metal, plastic, glass, hard woods, and various other materials. The water transfer printing process is extensively used to decorate items that range from entire all-terrain vehicles and car dashboards, to small items like bike helmets or other automotive trim. Films can be applied to all types of substrates including plastic, fiberglass, wood, ceramics, and metal. For the most part, if the item can be dipped in water and can be painted using traditional techniques then the hydrographic printing process can be used.

Automotive Restoration

The preservation and restoration of automobiles is the mechanical or cosmetic repair of cars or trucks. Restoration means removing, replacing, or repairing the parts of a vehicle, while preservation means keeping the original components.

Though automotive restoration is commonly defined as the reconditioning of a vehicle from “original condition” in an effort to return it to like-new or better condition, there are many styles of which a vehicle can be restored, any of which can be performed at the discretion, desire, or taste of a vehicle owner or restorer.

Traditional restoration is characterized as returning a vehicle back to its original condition or better in an effort to return it to like-new or better condition.

Resto-modification, also known as resto-modding, is when you take an old car and modernize it with an updated engine, suspension, brakes, tires and/or electronics.

Complete restoration includes not only repair of the parts that can be seen – the body, trim, chrome, wheels, and the passenger compartment – but also the components that are not necessarily visible or otherwise evident, including the engine and engine compartment, trunk, frame, driveline, and all ancillary parts like the brakes, accessories, engine cooling system, electrical system, etc.

Replica, re-creation, or tribute, is a vehicle that has been modified to appear like another car or truck entirely, or like a more desirable version of that same vehicle.

Preservation of exterior wear is characterized as leaving an antique car’s body and paint unrestored and in an ‘as-is’ condition, or by preserving patina. Vintage vehicles with patina are often valued for their originality and historical significance, not for the quality of restoration.

Paint

Automotive paint is paint used on automobiles for both protection and decoration purposes. Automobile paint is applied in several layers, with a total thickness of around 100 µm(0.1mm). Paint application requires preparation and primer steps to ensure proper application. A basecoat is applied after the primer paint is applied. This coat contains the visual properties of color and effects and is usually the one referred to as the paint. Base coat used in automotive applications is commonly divided into three categories: solid, metallic, and pearlescent pigments. Following this, a clearcoat of paint may be applied that forms a glossy and transparent coating that is able to withstand UV lighting. However, there are satin clear and matte finishes available depending on the customers desired look.
