Exciting colours. Long lasting finish.
HP Velotechnik's frames are protected with a top quality powder coating.
The finish of our frames consists of a multi layer powder coating. Not only is the applied powder coating technique extremely durable, it is also environmental friendly as no solvents or overspray can spoil the athmosphere.
First, the frames are sand-blasted for cleaning and then coated with a corrosion protection layer. This layer also ensures a good adhesion between the following paint layers and the frame. Depending on the colour shade, this is followed up by one or two colour powder layers. Some get their brilliance from a clear powder layer. The powder melts at high temperature in an oven and forms a durable coating, ensuring the long-lasting good looks of your HP Velotechnik bike.
Where possible, the frame decals and stickers are put on before the clear coat is applied, so that the decals are protected. Some colour shades however consist of very active colour particles that tend to move and enter into the decal material. In this case the decals are put on top of the protective clear coat or last colour layer.
Give your bike a personal look: The frame of your HP Velotechnik recumbent can be finished with a custom colour powder coating. You can choose from hundreds of colour shades:

Custom colours and powdercoating info
For your order we need the exact RAL colour code. On this page you can see an overview of the most common standard RAL colours. As colour display on the internet is not standardized and depends on your monitor's colour settings, the shown colours are only an indication. A more precise idea of how the colour looks like can be obtained with a printed RAL-colour chart. Before ordering, make sure you checked the colour shade with a printed RAL-colour chart, available at speciialized bike shops or paint shops.
Please keep in mind that the colour shades can vary due to the production process. This is especially important if you want to combine several components with "similar" colours. We recommend to use contrasting colours rather than matching nearly the same shades.
With some color shades we can not get satisfieng, long lasting results although the powder is available on the market. For this reason, we can not offer colors like RAL 1026 Leuchtgelb, RAL 2005 Leuchtorange, RAL 2007 Leuchthellorange, RAL 3024 Leuchtrot or RAL 3026 Leuchthellrot.
Ordering custom colours can expand the delivery time, your dealer will keep you up-to-date.
