Batchglow provided their metal powder coating service for a Supertram refurbishment in Sheffield.
Following 10 years of use and abuse the tramcars were due for refurbishment; Batchglow were involved with the refurbishment from initial colour selection to the provision of samples, swatch panels, advice on the suitability of materials and colour schemes.
The solution needed to have anti-graffiti properties. As such, the service provided by Batchglow involved an anti-graffiti coating which will allow the use of solvents to remove any unwanted scribblings without damaging the surface finish.
The client also required a high quality finish that would last in excess of ten years.
The vehicles were stripped of their fittings and poles which were collected from site and completed at Batchglow’s factory, then returned back by the company’s own transport.
The timescale of this project was just over one year. Given Batchglow’s thirty-year experience within the transport industry they proved the right partner and completed the whole exercise on time and on budget.
The result being a vehicle that looks as good as new, with a bright refreshed interior.
