Custom Spray Painting Commission For Norton Dominator

The Norton Dominator was originally developed by the Norton Motorcycle Company back in 1947 to go head to head with the Triump Speed Twin. Since then it has undergone years of production, gained a loyal following and created a lot of love for the classically British Norton brand.

We have recently customised a brand new Norton Dominator Miruss 55 Special for a company who place a lot of custom spray painting commissions with us. They came up with a design based on a 1970’s flat tracker (Ron Woods) and were keen for us to recreate this on the new Dominator.

Following a period of consultation we came up with a final design having slightly tweaked the orginal concept with input from the customer.  Feast your eyes on what was produced below!

Our wet spray painting turnaround times are the fastest in the industry and our ISO:9001 team is renowned for producing high quality finishes to strict deadlines.  Call us today on 01202 622258 to discuss your commercial requirements or get in touch here.


Custom Spray Painting Commission For Norton Dominator

We undertake blasting projects for a wide variety of customers, using a number of different techniques including grit, shot and bead blasting.

Whereas abrasive blasting (with grit or shot) is a rather aggressive process using a sharp angular blast medium – glass bead blasting is much more gentle and ideal for those wishing to achieve a uniform finish. With the fastest turnaround times in the market, our ISO:9001 team will be delighted to discuss your bead blasting requirements, so register your project today by calling us on 01202 622258 or make an online enquiry.

Professional bead blasting will:

  • Produce a satin or matte uniform finish
  • Make no dimensional change to the component
  • Create a smooth and bright finish
  • Offer excellent resistance to corrosion

The reason why bead blasting produces such superior corrosion resistance is because it effectively removes surface contaminants such as paint or rust without damaging the substrate. Because no residue is left behind by the glass bead medium (as can be the case with abrasive blasting), metal components can actually be strengthened by the process.

Our state of the art facility in Poole is used for both small and large scale blasting projects and our ISO:9001 team has extensive experience with all manner of bespoke requirements. With a specialist bead blasting cabinet, our skillful blasting professionals can offer precision blasting for smaller delicate parts.

To discuss your industrial blasting requirement with our professional team of experts in Poole, please call us today on 01202 622258 or contact us now for a prompt response.

kadenna cox in wheelchair with wheels custom painted by Wicked CoatingsApproximately 4,350 athletes from 160 countries competed at the 2016 Paralympics in Rio.

Of these, one British star shone brightly in the form of the Kadeena Cox – a magnificent parasport athlete who brought glory to herself and her country with a gold, silver and bronze in various disciplines. Pretty inspiring stuff.

On the Tuesday before the closing ceremony of the games, we were approached by Carbon Black – a manufacturer of bespoke mobility equipment. Carbon Black is a company that has pushed the boundaries of what can be achieved with bespoke wheelchair design. custom painting by wicked coatings
With a mantra of “Forget the conventional, ignore the standard and together we will change perceptions,” these guys are at the top of their game. What they needed from us was a first class custom finish for a pair of wheels.

The catch? We would have less than one week to produce it.

The required design was an eye catching reinvention of the union jack in blue, white and gold. Most importantly, these wheels were for a chair that was to be presented to Kadeena Cox on her triumphant return from the Paralympics.

The challenge was not only to closely re-create the union jack design that Carbon Black had given us but to produce a flawless finish in less than one week! With expectations high and an incredibly short turnaround to hit – the incredible team at Wicked HQ pulled out all the stops to make it happen. The result was outstanding and as you can see – an almost identical recreation of the colour scheme that Carbon Black had mocked up for us in the previous few days.

This is why the ISO:9001 accredited team at Wicked Coatings has an increasingly strong reputation for delivering fast results when it matters. Our turnaround times are the best in the industry and when coupled with an unyielding commitment to quality – your commercial coatings project is in safe hands. Call us today on 01202 622258 to register your project and discuss your requirements.

Coatings for the Film & Television Industry

Very simply, abrasive blasting is the process of forcibly propelling material against the surface of a component or area – to clean, roughen or smooth it.

It can get far more complicated than this though, as different results require different media. The media being the type of material that is used to “blast” the surface, be it sand, grit, glass, garnet or even crushed shells!

A skilled blasting service provider will spend time with the client to discuss the optimum blast media for the project. For instance, when blasting stainless steel, it is essential that glass bead rather than grit or steel is used as the blast media. This is to ensure that no fragments of the media are left behind which could potentially be exposed to moisture and then facilitate the very costly process of rust.

There seems to be a misconception in the industry that stainless steel doesnt rust – but rest assured, if your blasting provider doesn’t use the correct media then this will be the consequence…

So let’s look at one of the main types of blasting that we do here at Wicked Coatings in Dorset – shot blasting.

Shot Blasting for Metal

For industries that deal with metal – shot blasting will be the method of choice when it comes to surface preparation. Think – aerospace, military, food and construction industries.

As opposed to shot peening (a method used to enhance strength), shot blasting is predominantly used to clean and prepare the surface of the metal before it undergoes further work. Shot blasting can be used to effectively de-scale a surface prior to the application of a protective or decorative industrial coating. It can remove:

  • Debris
  • Oil
  • Grime
  • Rust
  • Old paint
  • Many other contaminants

There are two technologies that are used for shot blasting – wheel blasting and air blasting.

Here at Wicked Coatings, we use air blasting. This means that compressed air is used to propel the selected media or “shot” through a nozzle and onto the component/area that we are blasting. The media used for shot blasting can be any kind of dry abrasive material, but most commonly we use steel and grit. Good news for the environment too, as this type of product is 100% recyclable and far better from a health and safety point of view when compared to sand, as it doesn’t contain silicon.

Give us a call today on 01202 622258 if you would like to discuss a blasting project in more detail. Our skilled team and excellent blasting facility is based in Poole, Dorset and we are very quick to respond to online enquiries.







Shot Blasting in Poole, Dorset

Innovation in Valve Coatings

The London Coffee Festival is an annual celebration of all that is coffee, from the finest of beans to the most luxurious of coffee related gadgetry!

Our nation seems to have a growning obsession with the stuff and you may (or may not) be surprised to learn that we now have a UK Coffee week – for which the London Coffee Festival is the offical launch event.

Bearing this in mind, the team at Wicked Coatings HQ were interested to see what kind of things could be done to make a coffee machine, cooler than cool. We decided to work in conjunction with a top manufacturer of Italian espresso making equipment to produce a one of a kind machine to be displayed at this years festival.

With 30,488 visitors attending the show, we were keen for the coffee machine to really make an impact. Afterall, considering the number of people who enjoy a morning coffee, the aesthetics of the machinery that makes it should only add to the whole experience?

Following lengthy discussion, our hydrographics crack team in Poole came up with an incredible design that not only stole the show but attracted a crowd of coffee fanastics – desperate for some selfie action with the unique machine!

The final effect was created by using a pearl white base with sticker bomb water transfer printing. Our client was delighted with the customisation and the attention that it generated at the festival. Here’s what they had to say:

“We thought you would like to see some pictures of the machine that you customised the panels for. There is no question that the machine was the most pictured machine at the London Coffee Festival.

We went to the show on Saturday and there was a constant line of people just taking pictures and/or posing by the machine. We really loved the quality of the work done and appreciate that you pulled out all of the stops to make this happen in such tight time frames. I’m sure this will be leading to further work and new customisation ideas!”

“There is a misconception that stainless steel doesn’t rust… but it can if the wrong medium is used during the blasting process.” Chris Hinks, Director at Wicked Coatings

Used prevalently across a wide range of sectors and particularly the food industry, stainless steel is a metal that comes in a variety of grades and finishes. When prepared and maintained correctly, stainless steel equipment should withstand the multitude of pressures placed upon it within a food manufacturing environment. However, simply choosing the right grade and assuming that it won’t rust is a costly misconception…

Expectations are high for this kind of equipment. Necessity dictates that it should be:

  • Easy to clean
  • Capable of withstanding extremes of heat and cold
  • Not susceptible to damage from repeat sterilisation
  • Compliant with specific food regulations

In order to meet these stringent demands –  firstly it is important that the correct grade of stainless steel is chosen for the equipment, but more critically, the optimum blast medium must also be used in order to eliminate the risk of corrosion.

At Wicked Coatings, we only use glass bead to blast stainless steel. This is because other options used in the industry such as steel or grit blast will leave fragments of the substrate behind on the surface of the component. When moisture reacts with this residue steel or grit, a process of corrosion will begin – first spot rust and then more invasive pitting rust that can result in costly repairs.

By using glass bead as a blasting medium, no fragments with the propensity to rust can possibly be left behind on the equipment – and therefore no chemical reaction will ever take place that can lead to corrosion.  Once a steel component has been glass bead blasted, our expert blasting team in Poole will then oil the surface to leave a matt finish. Our entire process is focused on prolonging the life of our customer’s stainless steel equipment by preventing the cross contamination of metals.

In larger blast projects, we will occasionally use an aluminium oxide grit which is non-ferrous and so doesn’t affect the stainless steel.

If you would like to know more about our expert blasting service in Poole, Dorset – or have a project that you would like to discuss, please call us on 01202 622258 or contact us here.

Aircraft Interior Refurbishment

We have been working with the great team at Recreation Ltd on a number of projects for 2015 and have recently created a new coating solution for one of the star products from their range – the insanely fun Razor crazy cart!

With a sensational drive system that allows it to drive forward, sideways, diagonally and well – pretty much any direction you could wish to go – the  crazy cart is on another level when it comes to cool.  It goes without saying that a cool product needs a unique coating and we were happy to oblige when it came to creating an eye catching design for the new “Toxic” model.

The chaps at Recreation Ltd were very keen for us to produce an electric and crazy look for the latest cart and so we worked in-house to formulate a great “toxic green” industrial paint that could really stand out.

After painting the cart white and then stencilling on the necessary artwork, it was then finished in black to produce the sleek yet spectacular finish!

The original creator of the Razor crazy cart has since been over from the USA to admire the new design and was blown away by the colour scheme and ultimate effect. We think it looks pretty good too..

Recreation Ltd were kind enough to say a few words about their dealings with Wicked Coatings:

“Re Creation Ltd have now been working with Wicked coatings since November 2014 and we have carried out 3 projects with them.  The quality of the work and levels of service have been nothing short of SUPERB  and all the staff members from Reception to the Craftsmen have been a delight to speak to and work with as they are always polite, friendly and give good feedback from ideas and suggestions.  The three projects we have undertaken with Wicked Coatings have been carried out within the time frames promised and the finish has been well above expectation with our clients being amazed at how brilliantly the paint and hydro dipping has added to the impact of the product.

The TOXIC Cart went down a storm yesterday as it was ridden by the inventor Ali Kermani who had flown in from CA USA for a few marketing events and he was blown away by the finish and colour scheme, we also had Monster Energy present at this and they too were singing the cart design and finish praises! We are currently editing the video they recorded on it and will send to you once finished! We look forward to continuing this working relationship with Wicked Coatings and thank you all for the exceptional service you provide!”

If you work within the recreation sector and need an industrial coatings expert to take your project forward then please get in touch today or call us on 01202 622258.

Wicked Coatings Shortlisted For National Business Glory In 2015

When it comes to meeting the increasing demands of today’s consumer, visual impact plays an undeniable role.  It can define the character of a product or place and in many cases, significantly increase perceived value.

Based in Poole, Wicked Coatings has carved itself a niche in the custom coatings industry – helping manufacturers and designers to transform ordinary substrates such as wood, metal and plastic, into unique and eye catching items.

Operating in a 19,000 square foot facility, we have worked with a huge cross section of clients in a number of sectors including marine, medical, automotive, interior design, aerospace and more.  This professional outfit has a combined 30 years’ experience in the specialist coatings sector but is perhaps best known for expertise in a process called water transfer printing – also known as Hydrographics or dipping.

This decorative coatings technique involves applying incredibly realistic patterns such as wood grain, stone, carbon fibre or metal onto virtually any 3D substrate.  In a nutshell – the graphic is positioned on the surface of a tank of water and then sprayed with an activator to allow it to partially dissolve. Following professional preparation, the object to be customised is then expertly submerged into the water, allowing it to pass through the pattern and take on its new appearance!

For those wishing to save money in the manufacturing process, water transfer printing is the perfect way to achieve a durable yet expensive looking finish at an economical price. Clients in the marine and aerospace sector are particularly motivated by the considerable weight savings made by replicating a metal or stone finish on a fibre glass component.

Customers can either select their desired effect from a massive range of hydrographic films or work closely with Wicked Coatings to design a completely bespoke pattern which can then be manufactured for mass production application.

In the leisure sector, exciting progress has been made in the area of camouflage customisation – with particular demand for the highly sought after camo water transfer patterns by Realtree.  Wicked Coatings has been appointed as the leading licenced applicator and supplier of Realtree water transfer films and will work closely with manufacturers to advise on large scale production.

Setting water transfer printing aside, the decorative coatings industry is constantly evolving with new and innovative techniques.  The opportunity to experiment not only with colour but also a variety of incredible finishes and textures is something that Wicked Coatings has heralded a “game changer” – especially in the interior design sector.

The fascinating product range from Metalier Coatings is a fine example of what can now be achieved with decorative metal coatings.  Metalier will transform the look and feel of virtually any substrate using a variety of metal finishes such as copper, bronze, alumimum or iron.

Coatings can then be patinated, polished and waxed to fast forward the ageing process – creating rust on laminated wood or a weathered aluminium finish on plaster. From executive jet interiors to one off pieces of furniture, Metalier Coatings will allow designers and specifiers to explore a huge range of options as they strive to achieve aesthetic perfection at achievable cost.

We are firm believers in the  incredible versatility of this product range and Director Chris Hinks has commented:

“ This is a quick, durable and cost effective process that can greatly increase the perceived value of any project as well as significant weight savings when bronze can be substituted for MDF.”

So there you have it. The decorative coatings industry is a thriving hotbed of possibility for those with a surface finishing requirement – from large scale manufacturers to independent designers.  For high quality results it is always advisable to select a professional company known to be at the top of its game. When it comes to custom coatings for industry – Wicked Coatings is the name that should always come to mind.

Extreme Fear
Crippling exhaustion.

Driving yourself to the limits physically – and mentally.

Forget about Tough Mudder, forget about the Hell runner, forget about Brutal 10. If you want to compete at the top of your game – if you want to strike the fear of god into your exhausted soul – then it’s Tough Guy that will put the hair on your nuts. It’s the original. And it’s still the best. And guess what – Wicked Coating is going full throttle at it on 1st February in Wolverhampton.  Because that’s how we roll!

With a work hard, play hard mentality – our solid team of six is ready to take on a smorgasbord of crazy challenges including over 200 obstacles designed to induce extreme fear and panic.

25 years on from its conception, this is still the toughest test of its kind anywhere in the World today. With a full accident and emergency unit on site, 4 ambulances, 8 defibrillators and an onsite doctor, be under no illusion – this is serious stuff with the potential for a lot to go wrong.

So the question is – will our 6 man strong team from Wicked Coatings be ready for the challenges that lie ahead…

Word has it that the chaps have been slowly building up their strength and endurance over the past few months. There has been some impressive abstinence from the traditional guilty pleasures of the festive period meaning that all six have emerged leaner, meaner and more determined than ever to compete.

Logging all exercise on a training APP called Run Keeper, the team is now in final preparations for the event as the 1st February draws ever closer. Early morning 10kms on the beach are being followed by massive protein intake and even a spot of meditation as mental preparation appears to be key!

Please join us in wishing the team all the best in this incredible event – we are very proud of you all.

The Wicked Coatings “Tough Guy” team, being led by the mighty Lyle Meikle, consists of:

Lyle Meikle

Are you ready to be the absolute best you can be? It’s Tough Guy

Continued investment in facilities will always be a priority at Wicked Coatings.

Like many industrial organisations, the success of our business depends not only on the expertise of our team but also the machinery that we use to achieve our goals.

The latest addition to our modern suite of facilities is a Turbex degreasing tank which has recently been fitted in our metal division. This hugely functional machine will be well at home in its new heavy duty environment and is already rising to the challenge..

Performing a critical role in the preparation stage of the industrial coatings process, this machine will deliver exceptional cleaning results and ultimately enhance the end result of each industrial coatings project. Capable of accepting loads of up to 2,000Kg, the addition of this degreasing tank to our metal division will further cement Wicked Coatings as a leading provider of industrial coatings in the UK.

On 19th January we will be opening a brand new building to cater for the escalating demand for our  wood and composites division.  Discover more about this exciting new facility in next month’s newsletter!
