DecoCoat uses different techniques. Depending on material and specifications, we choose the technique that ensures the perfect result.
Roughly speaking, we use 3 techniques:
DecoCoat has extensive experience in lacquering carbon framesets with 2-component lacquer systems. The raw carbon frame is sanded and straightened. Then the lacquer system is applied. Often multi-layer, starting with a primer and one or more layers of basecoat.
For decoration, (water) decals are applied and finally a matt or gloss clearcoat. (Water) decals can also be applied to the clearcoat for special effects.
For steel and aluminium, DecoCoat applies a high-quality, multilayer powder coating/wet-coating system. This belongs to the top of the market. After pre-treatment, a powder primer is applied and a water-based wet paint as colour.
Usually, (water) decals are then applied and we finish with a transparent, glossy or matt powder coating.
DecoCoat is a sister company of Posterama, an industrial screen printing company that makes the best decals in the market. DecoCoat provides decals that best fit material and end-product specifications.
DecoCoat ensures the right synchronisation with the screen printing company, relieving you of any worries in this respect as well. This is how we achieve the perfect result.
- TOPdecals: water decals that are permanently enamelled onto the paint. This also makes matt/gloss effects possible.
- Water decals and poly decals that are applied under transparent and matt lacquers.
- 3D decals, which are applied underneath the primer or colour coating, creating relief on the semi-finished product.
Posterama has a wide variety of decals. Check out their collection for the bicycle industry here.
