National signage business CV Media & Signage has taken its powder coating in-house with installation of a new powder coat booth at its factory in Hendra, Brisbane.

“The 2020/21 financial year was an incredibly busy time for CV, with the business forced to rapidly adjust its operational procedures in order to comply with the COVID-19 induced restrictions,” the company said.
“With CV’s factory operating on all cylinders to deal with a rapidly increasing client list, the company recognised the importance of some making necessary upgrades in order to cope with previously unforeseen circumstances.”
The new powder coat booth will deliver high-quality finishes that can last over 20 years in the right conditions, CV said. Powder coating involves spraying aluminium signs with electrically-charged powder that bonds to the aluminium to create a surface that resists environmental factors.
“While a tremendous amount of time and capital was used to purchase this equipment, CV are confident that in the long term, the business will receive a positive ROI,” CV said.
“In the past, the business has had to outsource powder coating jobs to outside suppliers, and as a result of this, did not have complete control over its operations. With the business looking to maximise functionality, CV decided that it was appropriate to begin undertaking the powder coating process in-house. By installing this booth, the company will gain more operational control, and will therefore continue to deliver products of the highest calibre.
“While this equipment will be essential in helping the business maximise efficiency, the benefits do not end there. Crucially, this new Powder Coating process will allow CV to generate additional value for future clients.
"With the booth being of very high quality, upcoming customers will now have a much larger range of paint finishes to choose from. Additionally, as a demonstration of our confidence, CV is offering extended warranties on all powder coated finishes.”
CV says the Powder Booth will also lessen its environmental footprint – “powder coatings contain no solvents and release almost no volatile organic compounds into the atmosphere.”
