enamelling is a wet-paint process that uses specialised stoving
paints. The paint is applied by spraying before curing in an
oven at a specific temperature and for a specific period of time.
The result is a high quality, corrosion resistant, durable finish.
Stove Enamelling is typically used on metal components and is
available in a wide range of colours, gloss levels and other types
Stove Enamelling is one of the best paint finishes available for
metal parts. It combines a high quality finish with a tough, durable
coating to provide an aesthetically pleasing, corrosion resistant
and long lasting surface.
Stove Enamelling can also be suitable for high temperature
environments through the use of special, heat resistant paints.
to quality and success of the Stove Enamelling process is the
accuracy and consistency of the spray application. With wet paint
spraying, there is no substitute for experience which is why Unimet
can provide the quality and consistency that you need. Our staff are
highly experienced. Indeed some of our longest serving employees
have literally decades of experience.
important is the control of the stoving process itself. The spraying
areas are kept scrupulously clean to prevent contamination that
might spoil the finish and our temperature controlled ovens
incorporate an automated conveyor system that exposes painted
components to heat for the correct amount of time, ensuring a
consistent, high quality finish.
In addition, we are happy to advise and help you to choose the
right paint for your specific application, to meet your particular requirements.
We can provide shot blasting to remove dirt, corrosion and old
paint finishes and vapour based de-greasing to ensure that parts are
clean and ready for painting.
For aluminium parts, we offer Alocroming which chemically alters
the surface of the material, suitable for the application of paint.
