Galvacoat – Mr Gates


Mr Gates operate from a workshop and offices in Berkhamsted to provide their clients with a range of hand-crafted and bespoke pieces, which includes large gates, architectural structures, balconies and specialist pieces for local authorities.

Sunil Chandarana, Commercial Director at Mr Gates, explained: “Our clients request a very high standard of finish, and by using Galvacoat® we’re able to offer them the added reassurance of long-term protection against corrosion and rust from galvanized steel, whilst having the addition of colour, which gives a natural sheen and flexibility of design. It’s also a very quick and straightforward application, which works well on steelwork of any size and shape, so it’s a great all-rounder.”

They use Galvacoat® on a variety of projects including gates, railings, and balconies, to protect them against the elements, ensure longevity and to add a range of colour.

Galvacoat® is a tough, single application polyurethane topcoat that’s specifically formulated to adhere perfectly to Hot Dip Galvanized steel.

Specially designed for Hot Dip Galvanised Steel, it is suitable for all spray systems or brush applications.

While most standard paints are intended for use on ferrous metals, Galvacoat® has been designed exclusively for use on non-ferrous metals, and can be applied in a single coating – without the need for special etch primers.

It adheres firmly to the galvanized surface and does not allow any salts to form, thus maximising the adhesion and delivering a quality coating that can be typically expected to last for up to 15 years.
