Services for the engineering industry

When you’re talking about aeronautical engineering, it will come as no surprise that mistakes just aren’t on the radar. It can mean the difference between parts that succeed or fail and a plane that may be grounded – or worse. That’s why companies that need coatings to be right first time, every time, come to us. Companies like Qantas and Harringtons. Because when safety is your primary concern, there’s no substitute for Australia’s best coatings.

At Impreglon Australia, we have 40 years of experience with engineering work. No matter what the solution is that you are looking for or the challenges you face, we’re confident that we will be able to provide a solution that will not only meet your requirements, it will exceed them.

Below you will find some handy information that demonstrates our engineering coatings knowledge and should aid you in making the best choice for your next engineering project.

Popular Engineering Services

With some serious experience in the engineering sector, we are more than capable of looking after all your metal finishing needs. No matter what the application you have in mind, or how detailed the specifications might be, we’ll help you out with quality finishes you can rely on.

To the right you will see the top four services we’ve nominated for our engineering customers. Of course, we can provide you with just about any surface finishing you may require, but this is a great place to start.

Anodising of aluminium is an electrolytic surface treatment process where the work is made anodic in a acid solution. This is normally sulphuric acid, but this can be replaced with other acids for specialised coatings. The process is unlike other finishing methods. Where most processes coat the surface with an organic or inorganic deposit, anodising is a conversion of the base material itself to form a protective oxide coating.


Powdercoating is an organic coating method which uses a coating material in the form of a fine powder. The main difference between a conventional liquid paint and powdercoating is that the powdercoating does not require a solvent to keep the binder and filler parts in a liquid suspension form. This powder is applied using high voltage, electrostatic guns that impart a static charge to the powder, allowing it to stick to the components. The powder film is then baked at around 200°C where the powder melts and the curing occurs, forming a paint ‘skin’ on the product.


These are specially formulated coatings that contain zinc and aluminium powders in the form of very small flakes which overlap to form a very efficient galvanic coating. Common parts coated include nuts and bolts, and other small metal components processed in bulk, to larger parts that are sprayed with conventional spray guns. Many of these coatings can be top-coated with special sealers to further enhance the corrosion performance. These top coats can also be coloured if your job happens to require it.


The use of mechanical pre-treatment to prepare a surface for subsequent surface coating is becoming a more and more important tool in our finishing service. Removal of rust scale and other surface contamination is the basis for a quality surface coating. Mechanical processes are more environmentally acceptable as, unlike chemical processing, they do not generate chemical waste products that are costly to treat for disposal.
