Powder coated croquet and other sports equipment
Chipped and rusty croquet hoops: this bad impression for your club can be avoided. Chipped cast iron CA Tournament approved hoops give a poor impression of the club. Chipped paint and rusty hoops can be stripped and re-painted. Fusion bonded Tri-Resin Powder coated Croquet hoops remain in much better condition than normal powder coated Hoops. Used in the 14th WCF Association Croquet World Championship.

Who are good powder coaters?

Special cushion coating, soft thermoplastic, to absorb impact
The tops of croquet hoops often look untidy where the hand painted tops have chipped. This often happens during handling, hammering into the ground and rough storage. Windridge Coatings has developed a new method of painting the tops using a thermo plastic, which has a soft feel to it designed to absorb impact forces.
Repainting by powder coating is suitable for:
- Jaques Championship Hoop
- GW Championship Hoop
- Hopewell Hoops
- Aldridge Hoops
- Regular mild hoops
Which chips easier two pack enamel or powder coating?
Powder coating applied correctly can withstand hammer blows (see below). Two-pack polyurethane is probably the toughest of the wet paints but it is more brittle than well-applied powder coating and will chip easier. The video shows how tough the Tri-Resin powder coating is.
Should powder coat chip?
Windridge Coatings often gives talks to clubs and exhibits at shows. To prove powder coating is tough and not brittle when applied correctly, sample panels are tested by hitting them with a 2lb ball pein hammer. The testing is carried out in front of an audience who are always impressed with our confidence
This does not mean Tri-Resin Powder coating will not chip under extreme abuse but is more resistant to chipping compared to other powder coating.
