Powder coating provides a durable, attractive and even finish to metal surfaces.
Coating powders are electrostatically applied to prepared metals to ensure a smooth film thickness on even complex metal components.Metal powder coating can be executed in several materials and a wide range of finishes.
KMF offers a full range of metal painting and finishing processes, including powder coating, wet painting, laser marking, Tampo printing, and silk-screening.
Powder coating is an essential part of KMF Group's complete metal manufacturing solution.

Oxsilan was introduced to the UK as an alternative powder coating pre-treatment in 2006.
The introduction of the new Oxsilan technology was driven by factors such as increased environmental awareness, the need to reduce CO2 emissions, new legislation and increasing costs of raw materials. Leading metal fabricators like KMF are adopting the new pre-treatment technology for their powder coating process.
