Hot dip galvanizing and subsequent colour coating are standard in corrosion protection for steel constructions today. For the Seppeler Group’s Rietbergwerke coating steel has belonged to its range of services for more than 30 years, alongside hot dip galvanizing. With many years of expertise and its proximity, the corporate group offers an extensive package of services and solutions.
High-quality coatings on black steel or in a duplex process on zinc coated steel, protect the surface against moisture and UV light, as well as heat, and can be coated in all RAL colours at the same time. Thanks to customised logistics, Seppeler can offer its customers coated steels just-in-time. As a result, they can be integrated into processes on building sites regardless of the weather.
With wet painting a steel construction part is coated with wet paint. The paints are applied to the surfaces using a spraying method. The advantage of wet painting: practically any sized surface can be coated. Seppeler was the first German liquid coater to be awarded the Qualisteelcoat licence from the Qualitätsgemeinschaft Industriebeschichtung e.V. (QIB). Process reliability has also been certified in accordance with DIN EN 1090.
Powder coating at Seppeler is done without using any solvents at all. In the process, a powder made up of tiny plastic particles is applied by electrostatic charging and fired at roughly 180°C. This process ensures great weather resistance and colour stability.
In this respect coatings ensure safety and longevity. Both indoor and outdoor components are perfectly protected – in particular when combined with hot dip galvanizing. The advantage at Seppeler: all the services can be provided here within the Group from one source. This also optimises quality and shortens delivery times. With these and other additional services Seppeler is consistently gearing its services towards customers’ needs. And in fact in their immediate vicinity.
