Dales Fabrications

Dales awarded Approved Applicator status by Syntha Pulvin

  • 7 Nov 2019

Dales Fabrications is now an Approved Applicator of Syntha Pulvin architectural polyester powder coatings (PPC).

This significant development means Dales now has its own powder-coating factory to coat its aluminium eaves products, using Syntha Pulvin’s huge range of colours & textured coatings.

As an Approved Applicator for Syntha Pulvin, Dales can also provide a coating service to third party manufacturers, if necessary.

Dales is one of only 28 applicators in the UK to have passed the stringent Syntha Pulvin audit, and one of only a handful of systems-manufacturers to achieve Approved Applicator status.

The installation of a new polyester powder coating plant at one of Dales’ factories in Ilkeston is part of over £1m of investment over the last three years undertaken, with a key objective of securing approval from one of the major PPC brands.

The investment forms part of the company’s long-term growth strategy to maintain its position as the leading
manufacturer of fascia, soffit, rainwater and solar shading systems.

It was inevitable with its commitment to manufacturing sustainably that Dales would choose a non-chromate
pre-treatment and the independent salt-spray sample test results conducted as part of the audit process illustrate just how well they work with Syntha Pulvin powders.

Craig Wilson, Business Development Manager of Sherwin Williams, which owns Syntha Pulvin and who conducted the audit, confirmed Dales’ tight tolerances and quality control during the tests.

“The metal oven temperature gauge used in the Dales’ plant is the most accurate I have ever seen. The machine operates with a tolerance of ±2ºC, allowing consistent quality at all times,” he said.

“I actually took the temperature trace graph away with me to use in our training to demonstrate what is possible!”

As an Approved Applicator, Dales can offer products to customers with greater flexibility, wider choice, and improved lead-times.

It also gives Dales optimum control over the production process, offering customers an end-to-end service, with the assurance of premium quality.
