The Radiator Restoration Process
Each radiator is shot blasted to remove all previous coatings and ensure a perfect surface for re-coating.
Our years of experience have found that shot blasting not only achieves the best results but also keeps the seals intact, this ensuring a longer life for your radiator compared to the easier process of burning your radiator.
When the radiators arrive they are visually inspected for any damage. If they look sound they are then taken in to our blast room for cleaning back to bare metal.
From here they are taken to the assembly area and the old pipe fittings are removed, new fittings are then installed to the customers requirement.
The radiator is then pressure tested with water at a pressure of 6 bar to ensure there are no leaks, they are then pressure flushed to remove any loose debris that has accumulated in side.
Once we know they are sound they are taken to our coating area and primed.
They then go into our coating oven to fix the primer.
Then the customers chosen colour is applied and they go back through the oven.
Once cool they are taken back to the assembly area and tested again to 6 bar then wrapped prior to re delivery.
