What We Do
Northpoint LTD specialises in powder coating. Powder coating is a type of dry coating, which is applied in the form of a dry powder. The main difference between powder coating and standard liquid paint is that powder coating does not need a solvent to keep the binder, fillers, pigments, extenders and resin in a liquid form. This leads to a more environmentally friendly process of both Fence and Pipe coating.
So, why should you choose us to renovate and protect your outdoor furniture?
- Excellent Plant Capability
Northpoint can process orders both large and small. Each product category has certain limitations, for example;
For Pipe Coating the Hoist Lifting Weight is 3000Kg maximum. NB Items up to 6000 mm long can be coated, providing that they can be dipped from both ends. The Fluid Bed Depth – 3000 mm and Fluid Bed Opening (on plan) up to 3000 x 3000 mm.
For Fence Coating the limitations are related to size; anything up to 11000 x 3000 mm can usually be accommodated.
- Quick Turn Around Time
Each order we process differs from the next. Turnaround times are subject to fluctuations depending on the size, specification and complexity of the order. Generally, most of our orders are processed within a week or a few days for smaller orders. We aim to have our orders complete within 7 days at a maximum.
- International Delivery
Northpoint offers both national and international delivery. Our transport service can deliver to mainland UK subject to agreement. Any deliveries to the EU are carried out by courier service, arranged by us.
- Life Expectancy Guarantees
At Northpoint we strive for 100% customer satisfaction; that is why we offer a standard 10-year coating life expectancy guarantee on our Fence Coatings and can offer warranties where necessary by prior agreement.
The Akzo Nobel Interpon D range has up to a 30 year warranty (subject to terms and conditions) for colour and gloss.
Life expectancy of the coating is influenced by the location and maintenance of the coating.
Pipe Coatings don’t carry an explicit warranty but FBE coatings have been applied and are still in service in some parts of the world with over a 40 year service life.
- Environmentally Friendly Coatings
Powder Coatings emit virtually no volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and therefore have a significantly reduced impact on the environment. Any ‘over-spray’ from Powder Coating can be recycled, producing less waste and making the process more cost-effective. Powder Coating production lines produce less hazardous waste than standard liquid coatings and have a significantly thicker coating film.
- Expansive Colour Range
Fence Coatings come in either Green RAL 6005 or Black RAL 9005 as standard.
There are also 38 other standard stock colours. We can also apply any number of other colours from the BS 4200 colour range, all you need to do is ask.
Pipe Coating is usually one colour; Resicote comes in aqua-blue/green, blue and red colours. The red and blue both being applied typically over ductile iron pipe fittings. Of course, if you require another colour, say poppy red for example, then we can apply this as an exterior finish over the Resicote aqua-blue/green finish.
We are often asked to do this for fire suppressant pipework for oil and gas installation.
