Why use a dust free spray booth?

Our enclosed dust free spray booths have air entering through filters so that the environment inside has a minimal amount of dust. The spray painter working within the booth also wears an anti-static full cover spray suit, again to reduce dust to a minimum.

What we spray

Recently we had a new client visiting us to discuss his individual needs on a project he was working on and to look at some stain colour samples that we had made up for him Whilst he was in our factory he observed many deliveries coming in and going out.

Ultra Violet additives in clear lacquer

It’s funny how so many questions are repeatedly asked of us covering the same topics. Over the last couple of months, we have been asked about UV inhibitors being added to lacquer on 5 separate occasions. So this month we thought we might address that issue again.

For some reason, that no one seems to be able to answer, the majority of clients assume that by asking for two pack, they are also asking for a top quality application of that product.

Specialist tradesmen

Here at Simmonds Polishing we are acutely aware of the need to be able to cater to all the coatings needs of our clients. Even though we operate in a niche market of joinery surface coatings, that niche is quite varied in the many different products we apply and the way in which they are applied.

Single pack verses Two pack

Every now and then we are asked if we can offer a more economical price on polishing by using a single pack clear lacquer instead of a two-pack clear lacquer.
The thought in the mind of the client is that single pack lacquer is cheaper to purchase and easier to apply so cost savings can be made in both purchasing materials and in the application process.

Research and development project

At Simmonds Polishing we are often asked to develop finishing systems to suit the specific individual requirements of a client. Recently we undertook a two-week research and development project for a very unusual project.
