Cladding Spraying Gives Commercial Buildings a New Lease of Life

Cladding spraying can transform the appearance of uPVC or metal cladding on commercial properties and industrial sites across the UK. It protects surfaces from weathering and gives the building a new lease of life, making it look like it was newly installed. Grubby, damaged cladding can have a negative impact on business and visitor perceptions. But a revitalised exterior is more likely to boost staff morale, improve customer perceptions and add value to the property. The right cladding paint can help to extend the lifespan of the surface, protecting it from abrasion and corrosion, and providing resistance to atmospheric pollution and fungal attack.

The process is quicker than conventional painting and allows the surface to be coated from multiple angles, enabling even coverage. Using the correct coating is key, and our expert team only works with premium quality cladding paints that are specifically designed for use on commercial buildings, offering a durable long-lasting finish and protection.

This type of cladding paint is also ideal for use on hard to reach areas and in corners that are otherwise difficult to access with brushes or rollers. It’s quick to dry, meaning that the cladding can be back in use in a matter of hours. Our cladding spraying services are available to businesses and organisations of all sizes and can work around the needs of your operation, with minimum disruption.

Unlike thermal spray, cold spray (CS) cladding uses no heat to coat the substrate. It enables the application of coatings to diverse substrates that are not suitable for conventional welding or other thermal spray processes, due to their different material properties and tolerances. It is particularly suitable for repairing or enhancing critical components, extending their lifetime and improving performance, for example by mitigating distortion caused by welding and other thermal processes.

Hayden invested in a TRUMPF 5-axis CO2 laser system in 2004, and work from the oil sector soon flowed in. At first, the system primarily deposited tungsten carbide overlays over drill tools. But the technology is also useful for a number of other applications, including those where welding would cause distortion and ruin the tight tolerances achieved through previous machining.

Rather than using a welding arc, the laser melts powdered metal to deposit a precise layer of cladding. It is not only quicker, but it avoids oxidation and corrosion and produces an exceptionally strong bond. As a result, Hayden has developed a range of cold spray processes that are suitable for different materials and substrates.
