Quality & Know-How


Our thermally or UV cured coatings are applied in purpose-built clean rooms with a wide range of application methods, including vapour deposition, dip, flow and spray coating.

The applied coatings will add value and considerably extend the life of your product, both in terms of usability and appearance, by improving abrasion as well as chemical and UV resistance. They can also add other properties such as anti-static and anti-fog.

With our vapour deposition equipment, we are also able to apply gold onto polycarbonate. This process is carried out under vacuum and uses gold at a purity of 99.99%.

In addition to our coating capabilities, we are a leading stockist and supplier of coated plastic sheet material from 1mm to 12mm thick. With our in-house fabricating equipment large format sheets in your required final size can be supplied with a number of different coatings . The coated sheets are ideal for use in either interior or exterior applications and can be supplied with different types of coating on either one or both sides.

We are BSI accredited to ISO 9001:2015, ISO 14001:2015 and ISO 45001:2018.
