Colour expert

Vertik-Al will demonstrate how its businesses benefits from more than 50 years of powder-coating expertise, market leading quality and rapid lead-times at the FIT Show.

With a supply chain and long-term partnership with global paint and coatings companies – including AkzoNobel, Syntha Pulvin, Axalta, IGP, Valspar, Tiger and Inver – Vertik-Al stocks around 400 colours and has access to over 3,000 colours and textures, including metallics, smooth and stone-effect finishes.

Vertik-Al customers benefit from a quick-turnaround – in some cases just four days. Vertik-Al operates an efficient colour management system. If a delivery comes into the central Birmingham powder coating facility with a certain colour requirement and that same colour is being run on one of the lines, then it is fast-tracked straight into production.

Since 1994, Vertik-Al is the only powder coating specialist in the UK and Ireland to hold a GSB International quality seal for Approved Coated Aluminium, the company said. It was also one of the first commercial architectural powder coaters to obtain BSI approval and the Qualicoat quality label, setting the standard in today’s market.

Investment in a new horizontal powder coating plant has seen the Birmingham-based business boost its environmental credentials through a reduction in powder usage, while delivering an outstanding finish on matt, gloss and textured coatings; benefits which can be shared with its customers. Another new horizontal powder coating plant is due for installation later this year.
