A little bit of background

Before making the all important decision as to which colour and finish you’d like your Stereo Amplifier to have,
we thought you’d like to know a little bit more about the materials it’s made from. 

 

The chassis itself is made from 2mm thick mild grade steel. It’s TIG Welded, rolled and folded before being shaped
and refined by hand. The base plate is made from 3mm steel.

The end caps and capacitor casings are machined and laser cut from billet A086 Aluminium. The whole process takes approximatelya day to complete before the items are sent to be prepared before thepainting process begins.

The Prep

Once our painters have received all the external components the preparation process can begin. 

 

We believe that the product is painted in the orientation of how the customer will see it.  This essentially means that the painting process  takes longer, but ensures more control and a much better finish. 

 

The inside of the chassis is painted first with a graphene primer. Once prepped and cleaned, the outside of the chassis is then lightly dusted with Etch Primer and two coats of high-build primer. After the primer is applied the chassis along with the end caps and capacitor casings are baked and left to ‘cure’. After the primer application process  the primer layer is carefully rubbed down by hand with specific grades of sandpaper. Each one gradually becoming more refined to ensure a smoother and cleaner finish.

What's next?

Our painters then make sure there are no contaminates like silicon or oil present. They’ll do this by using a solvent panel wipe in-between coats. They also go a step further and use a water-based panel wipe just to make sure that no organic matter like sweat from the skin or incredibly tiny bugs are present.Once the priming preparation stage is complete then the chassis, end caps and casings are all masked up ready for the painting process to begin. 

 

Our painters take particular care in the preparation phase. It lays the foundation for everything else. Refinement is the key word here. From the engineering and manufacturing processes, to the to the painting and the final build; refinement dictates the time and quality that goes into our producing our products.

 

The chassis, along with the other components can take up to a week to prep and paint. Once the final polish has been done the end results are well worth the wait.
