Pre-treatment and Preparation
In order to guarantee the final finish, BPF will correctly prepare the items ready for coating in line with our customers requirements either by agreeing the ideal finish the goods should be received in, or recommending a range of treatments in order to achieve the final finish. These may include:
We are able to shot blast items of any size, from small to medium sized items in our own shot blasting facility or through a local out-sourced operation.
Degreasing and washing
As part of our service, we degrease parts of all sizes and clean small to medium items with our in-house phosphate wash facilities to give the optimum finish.
Masking options are available to meet the requirements of the project, to achieve accurate and defined areas that are ‘powder free’, caps and plugs are used to mask threaded components.
Final Assembly and Storage
Final assembly work or final packaging is offered so the product leaves our factory ready for you to deliver direct to your end customer or hold within your warehouse. Also operations such as inserting rubber grommets and sleeves, labelling and simple add on items can be achieved.
Our factory also offers large storage capacity suited for short to medium term storage of items.
Packaging & Delivery
We package and protect items as required using a range of materials such as cardboard, bubble wrap and shrink wrap onto a pallet. We also provide a pick up and delivery service from Birmingham to the South Coast.
Aerosols and Touch Up
BPF has the in-house facility to make aerosol spray cans (minimum order six) or provide touch-up pots from our extensive range of powders and paints. Any colour paint can be matched and produced into aerosols or touch up pots.
