Smoothedge now has its own environmentally-friendly powder coating plant.


Recently-comissioned by Smoothedge is a fully-automated and non-chromate cleaning system –

one of the first in the world. Powder coating is the world’s fastest-growing finishing technology, applying decorative and protective finishes to a wide range of metal parts. The powder used in this process is a mixture of finely ground particles of pigment and resin which is sprayed with a special spray gun that electrostatically charges the powder. The charged powder adheres to the electrically -grounded parts and is heated and fused into a smooth coating in a curing oven. The result? A uniform, high-quality smooth and attractive finish that is highly durable, scratch and chip resistant. Thanks to the powder coating plant, Smoothedge now has the ability to powder coat in a variety of colours, glosses, textures and base resins for a broad selection of coating properties. Providing a non-polluting and high-quality finish for industrial and consumer products, Smoothedge’s powder delivery system was designed in-house by its mechanical engineer and is a fully-automated system designed and built to ensure maximum coverage on all profiles.
