Sandblasting or Abrasive blasting is the operation of forcibly propelling a stream of abrasive material (sand) against a surface under high pressure to smooth a rough surface, roughen a smooth surface, shape a surface, or remove surface contaminants.
Soda Blasting is an environmentally friendly non-toxic, non-flammable, non-hazardous, FDA approved technology that safely strips paint and cleans almost any surface. Soda Blasting uses compressed air to deliver a sodium bicarbonate based media (baking soda) onto the surface to be cleaned. Unlike Sandblasting Soda Blasting will not pit glass, tear up rubber & plastic and etch metal.
Powder Coating is a type of coating that is applied as a dry powder to create a hard finish that is tougher than conventional paint. It comes in virtually in any colour or finish whether it be matte or smooth, it is rust free and also scratch resistant. Please contact our staff should you require any further details about Powder Coating.
Dix Manufacturing Group can organise Painting of any project no matter, the size, shape or colour required. Pleasecontact our friendly staff for more information.
Hot Dip Galvanizing is a process of coating the iron, steel or aluminium with a thin layer of zinc in order to protect the material from the elements. This process involves ‘dipping’ the metal in a molten bath of Zinc to create a chemical reaction to form Zinc Carbonate, this in turn bonds to the surface of the material, leaving a dull grey patterning on the surface. This fairly strong material stops further corrosion in many circumstances and is widely used in applications where rust resistance is needed.
Electroplating has many uses some of which include abrasion and wear resistance, corrosion protection, aesthetic qualities or even to build up the thickness of an undersized part. Electroplating is performed by submerging both the metal to be plated and the donor metal in a solution. Then, by using electrical current the cat ions within the donor metal are reduced and the charge/conductivity of the metal to be plated is increased resulting in a reaction that leaves a thin layer of the donor metal on the desired material.
Hard Chrome Plating
Hard Chrome Plating is the process of electroplating a thin layer of chromium onto a metal object. Chrome plating can provide corrosion resistance, ease cleaning procedures, increase surface hardness or even provide a decorative layer.
