Exploring Coating and Finishing Options for Enhanced Protection

At Steelwish, we take pride in offering a wide range of surface finishes for our bike racks and bollards. We understand that a high-quality product requires not only superior materials but also the right finish. In this article, we will provide valuable information about the finishes we offer, including Powder Coating, Stainless Brush, Electropolish, Hot Dipped Galvanized, and Darcromet. By exploring these options and understanding their benefits and warranty information, you can make an informed decision to ensure your bike rack or bollard meets both your functional and aesthetic requirements.

• Hot dipped Galvanized

• Stainless Steel brush

• Electro Polished Stainless Steel

• Powder Coating

• Dacromet coating

Hot dipped galvanized

Hot-dipped galvanizing is a process that involves immersing steel or iron in molten zinc to create a protective layer. This coating provides excellent corrosion resistance, making it an ideal choice for outdoor applications exposed to harsh weather conditions. Hot-dipped galvanized coatings are known for their durability and ability to withstand abrasion, impact, and UV exposure.. Our EZ-riser double decker bike rack is most made with HDG as they’re installed outside with lots of touches with bikes, so HDG is perfect for it.

Warranty: 20 Years

Stainless steel brush

Stainless steel brush finishing is a surface treatment that involves brushing the metal with abrasive materials, creating a distinctive textured appearance. This process not only enhances the aesthetic appeal of stainless steel but also removes surface imperfections and improves its corrosion resistance. Stainless steel brush finishes are commonly used in architectural applications, interior design, and high-end products.

Warranty: 15 Years

Stainless steel Electro Polish

Electro polishing is an electrochemical process that removes surface imperfections from stainless steel while enhancing its corrosion resistance. The metal is immersed in an electrolyte bath, and an electric current is applied to dissolve the surface material. This process creates a smooth, polished finish that improves cleanability and resistance to staining and corrosion. Electro polished stainless steel is often used in the pharmaceutical, food processing, and medical industries.

Warranty: 20 Years

Powder coating

Powder coating is a popular finishing method that involves applying a dry powder onto a metal surface and curing it with heat to create a protective layer. This coating offers excellent durability, impact resistance, and resistance to chemicals, UV rays, and fading. Powder coating is available in a wide range of colors and finishes, allowing for customization and decorative options. It is commonly used in industries such as automotive, furniture, and outdoor equipment.

Steelwish offers more than 12 colors choices and branded powder like Tiger, Dulux, Akzonobel, Glidden,etc as per your requirements.

Warranty: start with 3 Years

Dacromet Coating

Dacromet coating is a corrosion-resistant coating that provides excellent protection against harsh environments, chemicals, and saltwater. It is a non-electrolytic coating that forms a thin layer on the surface, offering exceptional adhesion and durability. Dacromet coatings are commonly used in automotive parts, industrial equipment, and fasteners where high corrosion resistance is required.

• Suitable for high-temperature applications (up to 300°C)

• Paintable coating

• Electrical conductivity for most application processes

• Competitive application costs

Warranty: start with 3 Years
