Screws are necessary evils. You cannot fasten a panel or profile without screws. It looks awful when you do not have the right coloured screws and when the colour of the fasteners is different from the colour of the panel or profile.

Once you have taken on a job as a contractor, you are responsible for the quality of construction, performing all work on schedule, within the budget, and, of course, you will be judged on the end result.

Part of the final result that is judged is the finish. Your client will check the construction after completion and look at the way the project was finished.

Coloured screws or blind rivets for a great end result

Coloured screws, nails, profiles or other fasteners will help you put down a great end result. A result that will make your customer smile.

No hassle, no dotting the i's, no wrangling over repairs, just a satisfied customer, and you have made a nice amount of money.

Not just a coloured head

Many suppliers sell screws on which you can put coloured heads. These heads are often already powder coated in a predetermined colour.

This means that the variety is limited. There are thousands of colours, but only a certain number of colours are available and in stock. Only standard sizes are immediately available, but often in small quantities.

How do we colour screws?

IPEX has developed a system combining experience and a unique product offering. In this system, it is possible to powder-coat any fastening system in any colour. Together with our international network of panel and profile products, we have built up a database containing a great many possible colours.

Powder coating is a process in which powder colour pigments are applied to metal surfaces, such as screws, through electrostatic techniques. Here are the steps that are being followed:

1.      Preparation: The screws are thoroughly cleaned and degreased to ensure that the surface is free of dust, grease or other contaminants.

2.      Application of the powder: The screws are placed in a special device, where electrostatic charges are applied. This attracts and applies the powder colour pigments to the screws.

3.      Oven drying: The screws are then placed in an oven, where the powder is heated until it adheres to the metal surface. This process is known as curing.

4.      Inspection: After drying, the screws are checked for the number of coats of powder, finish and colour.

5.      Finish: If the screws meet the quality requirements, they are packed and shipped to the customer.

Powder coating is a popular option for colouring metal parts. It is a sustainable, environmentally friendly and cost-effective technique. It provides a strong, protective layer that resists rust, corrosion and other damage.

We have thousands of colours in stock. We can use original RAL colours as well as a mix to create a unique colour.
