Welcome to the proven best corrosion protection in
the world: it also protects budgets by thousands of
pounds. Give wet paint the brush off.
In any of more than 250 colours, in any of its many textures, Colourgalv protected steel
has all the qualities, features and benefits you’d expect of a state of the art material.

Thirty years technical heritage goes into every millimetre. Up to twenty five years’
guarantee is available with every project.

Don’t paint yourself into an
expensive corner
For many architects, engineers and specifiers,
excellent corrosion protection is no longer enough.
Colourgalv was launched by Highland Colour
Coaters to provide customers with all the benefits
of galvanized steel plus an extra durability – over
100 years in some cases - and abrasion-resistance
that paint-based systems cannot match.

Galvanizing costs are almost identical to a two-coat
paint system, which may survive for only ten years.
Refurb with Colourgalv and
save money from day one!
Our proven abilities help us provide outstanding options for our clients at
any stage of a job.

At the outset, Highland can conduct a free survey to evaluate the project’s
suitability. We can offer coating solutions expressly devised for individual
problems. Where items can be saved through remedial treatment, we can
save the steel, and where items are corroded beyond repair, we can source
suitable fabricators. If a client - whether private, Local Authority or
otherwise – has no access to direct labour or an independent contractor,
we can make erection services available.

The Colourgalv service is a complete, one-stop solution.

So what’s stopping you calling us?

Affordability you can’t afford to ignore
                                       COLOURGALV DOES WHAT IT SAYS IN THE CASE STUDIES. With
                                       Colourgalv, the extended life of the finished product provides value for
                                       money superior to that of wet paint alternatives, as our portfolio of
                                       independent case studies proves.

                                       We have several recent studies taken from entirely independent research
                                       undertaken by Carr McLean Watson, Quantity Surveyors, Glasgow.

 Colourgalv powdercoating’s advantages over wet paint. For details please get in touch.
