We're opening a shop up on our social pages! Every item will be restored and up-cycled from the local community with the aim of bringing new life to things like old furniture. Stay tuned for more additions as they go live! 💙

About us

Here at Riverside Coatings Ltd our mission is simple – provide you with proper powder coating & shot blasting.

We are a powder coating & shot blasting company based in Castleford, West Yorkshire offering a fast, friendly and professional service. Our 6 metre curing oven, along with our custom-built Autowash machine, allows us to be able to powder coat most metal items; from large gates to small parts, in a range of substrates.

What is powder coating?

"Powder coatings may be described as 100% solid paint which comprises a homogeneous blend of polymers, pigments and additives produced in the form of a fine powder. The powder is applied, most commonly, by means of a spray gun that imparts an electrical charge on the powder particles and directs them towards the object to be coated. The object is then subjected to heat which causes the powder to melt, flow out and form a tough, coherent film."

BCF (British Coatings Federation)

Why powder coat?

Powder coating is environmentally friendly, is more durable than liquid paint, and has an attractive appearance and finish. Powder coated products are more resistant to scratches, corrosion, colour fading and weather conditions, and there is also a wide range of colours, glosses and textures to choose from.

As an Interpon Approved Applicator we only use branded powder coats from trusted suppliers. We typically use RAL colours*, however can order in specialist powders upon request.

*Note not all RAL colours are stocked - please request samples for specific requirements before placing an order.


Here at Riverside Coatings we use a 2 & 4 stage pre-treatment process for galvanised steel and aluminium. Our Autowash machine uses zinc phosphate to treat galvanised steel in a process which is brand-new to the powder coating industry, as well as being recognised by AkzoNobel. This etches the galvanised steel/aluminium so that it is ready to be coated.

Our powder coating process complies with the British Standard for polyester coatings on galvanised steel (BS EN 13438), which specifies the multi-stage chemical pre-treatment of:

  • De-greasing
  • Alkaline/Acid cleaning
  • Rinsing
  • Zinc phosphate
  • Rinsing
  • Deionised rinse or chrome seal

Shot blasting

We use a 200 litre Redline Blast Pot in our large shot blasting cabinet. This allows us to be able to strip back metal that has already been coated, such as old iron gates and railings, as well as key mild steel. In addition to this we also have a small blast cabinet for component parts and smaller items that require a less-abrasive media.
