About us

Phorotech Surfin (India) Private Limited was established in 1997 in Chennai. It is the first of its kind in India to undertake cathodic electro-deposition (CED) painting on job-work basis. The technology for the process and for manufacturing the plant was imported from Kansai Paints and Equipment Company, Japan.

Cathodic Electro Deposition

Cathodic Electro deposition is a method of applying a coating which uses electrical current to deposit aqueous dispersed resins and pigments onto a conductive substrate. The advantages of CED coating are High corrosion protection right into every corner, uniform coat thickness structure, good adhesion behaviour. Coating of hollow parts and work pieces with complicated geometries possible.

Powder Coating as top coat

Powder coating is a dry finishing process which uses electrostatic spray deposition principle. Powder paint particles are charged using an electrostatic spray gun and sprayed on to the grounded parts. The powder coated parts are then cured in a hot air circulating oven to produce long molecular chains, resulting in high cross-link density coating. Powder coatings are generally harder and offer improved impact, abrasion, chemical resistance, and superior exterior weatherability over most liquid coatings.

Geomet Coating

GEOMET is a proprietary water-based coating dispersion containing metal oxides, metallic zinc and aluminium flakes. The zinc and aluminium platelets align in multiple layers forming a metallic silver-grey coating. Applied as a liquid, the coating becomes totally inorganic after curing.

Liquid Coating as top coat

Spray painting is a process by which liquid paint is applied under pressure to an object. Spray painting may be carried out by hand or automatically. There are several methods used to atomise the paint for spraying. Conventional air compressor – compressed air is used to draw liquid paint out of the container and produce an air-paint mist from the nozzle of the spray-gun. Electrostatic spray painting – an electric pump drives the electrostatically charged liquid paint out of the nozzle which is then applied to the object which is earthed.
