About Poeton Industries Ltd

Poeton Industries Ltd is a group of surface coating contracting companies which has operated since 1898, the original founding company being A T Poeton and Son Ltd. 

We have coating centres at Gloucester and Cardiff in the UK (see location maps for contact details). Poeton also license processes and provide a consultancy service on coating plant design, installation and operation through its Poeton-Aptec Division in the UK.

We hold several patents for electroplating techniques as well as full approval to process for some of the world's most renowned companies and organisations. These include Airbus (UK), BAE Systems, Goodrich, Agusta Westlands, Rolls Royce and Honeywell.

Under our ‘Apticote’ trademark, we offer hard chrome, cadmium, electroless nickel, thermal spraying, anodising, plasma electrolytic oxidation (PEO), polymer coatings and a range of specialist hybrid treatments that provide unique performance advantages. ‘Apticote’ is now specified by name on many customers’ engineering drawings.

For aerospace and defence, we hold OEM Approvals, ISO 9001-2008, ISO 14001 and NADCAP certification, underpinned by NDT and QA techniques. Our Cardiff site also offers copper, Tin/Nickel, Alocrom and engineering painting, whilst the Gloucester site operates advanced robotic systems for thermal spraying. All our processes are computer controlled, ensuring consistent quality and repeatability.

For the food, pharmaceutical and packaging industries, our polymer composite coatings offer unrivalled low friction, non-stick and corrosion protection, many with FDA compliance. For automotive, our nickel-composite cylinder coating gives the ultimate engine performance. For light-weight materials, including Mg and Ti, our PEO and composite anodising provide unsurpassed corrosion and wear protection.

Whatever the problem, high, medium or low volume, Poeton has the solution. We support our products with top class laboratory services, including wear and corrosion test facilities, and an ongoing programme of R&D, underpinning our claims for the best coating performance.

We are committed to solving our customers’ problems, through consultation and project management, including a help-line, developing new coatings, advising on materials and design, and ensuring the optimum and most cost-effective surface engineering solution.
