Powder Coating

Powder Coating

What it is:

Powder Coating is the process of applying a free-flowing, dry powder to a metal surface in order to achieve a refinished look. The powder is then heated to also provide a protective layer that is chip/scratch resistant, decreases fading and corrosion, and increases longevity of each product. We highly recommend applying a base primer for outdoor products in order to achieve the best results. There are 6,500+ color options available and price varies depending on the color chosen and the size of product.

Why use powder coat instead of paint?

Powder coating is a high quality, durable finish that allows for maximized production, improved efficiencies, and simplified environmental compliance. There are no solvents present in powder coat, therefore, there is little release of any volatile organic compounds into the atmosphere causing harm to the environment.

Process:

  1. Media Blasting is used to clean off any old paint and to create a rough surface for powder to adhere.
  2. The surface is then prepped for application
  3. Powder coat is applied to surface (any color that is chosen)
  4. The powder coat is then baked onto the surface using a curing oven
  5. A clear coat (sealer) can then be applied to the product to guarantee durability and longevity only if requested

Application:

Powder coat can be applied to a variety of hard finishes:

  • Household appliances
  • Aluminum extrusions
  • Drum hardware, instrument stands
  • Automobile parts (bumpers, grill guards, racks, rims, etc.)
  • Bicycle parts
  • Railings/decking
