We define powder coating as the process of applying a
powder material to the surface using an electrostatic or compressed air method.
It’s also one of the most advanced techniques for applying a protective and
decorative finish to nearly any type of metal.
More companies are turning to powder coating as it
produces a dry, clean and highly durable finish, without using volatile organic
compounds. Overall, it is more economical as it saves customers time, effort
and money in the long run.
The term “fabrication” means to make something from
raw materials whether it’s wood, plastic or certain types of metals. Several
industries currently benefit from aluminium fabrication which refers mostly to
the construction of metal structures. Choosing a material is a critical
decision in all aspects of the production but so is the finishing process.
Although you can fabricate any metal, aluminium is
considered one of the most common resulting in big demand for aluminium
fabrication services across the world. It’s not surprising if you consider that
aluminium is all around us in our homes and office buildings. Some of the most
common are aluminium gates and aluminium frameworks used for doors, windows and
Shot blasting is used to clean, polish or strengthen metal preparing it for the application of overlays or specialist coatings. It is a technological process used to remove various impurities from different surfaces using abrasives. This includes removing rust or old layers of paint to prepare surfaces for further processing like painting, welding or powder coating. Many industries working with metal use shot blasting, including aerospace, automotive, construction, shipbuilding, rail among many others.
Several industries currently benefit from aluminium fabrication, which relates to the construction of metal structures by means of cutting, bending and joining. Most extrusions go through some form of further processes such as fabrication, machining and surface treatment. The properties of aluminium make extrusions highly suitable for almost any type of fabrication.
Although fabrication can be applied to any metal, aluminium is considered one of the most common. As a result, there is a big demand for aluminium fabrication services all over the world. If you look at your home or office building, aluminium is all around us. Some of the most common features are aluminium gates and aluminium frameworks used for doors, windows and showers.

Tin and silver plating are essential for components designed to carry heavy electrical currents such as Busbars. It’s believed that silver is the best metal for conducting electricity making it a popular choice for electronics and semiconductors.
At PRV Engineering, we provide a high quality painted finish to very exacting standards. Our plating facility is testament to how we operate in terms of quality finish and zero tolerance on rejects. There is no better way of controlling quality than by doing it yourself which is exactly what we do. Continue reading →
