A little about what we do
The powder coating process uses very fine dry particles of
resin with the pigment color of your choice. The resin powder is
applied with a spray gun similar in concept to applying solvent
based paint. The difference is that this spray gun and its resin
contents have an electrostatic charge. When the resin powder is
sprayed onto a part it sticks to the metal because it's
grounded, attracting charged resin powder like a magnet. The
charged powder adheres to the metal then is melted by baking at
about 400F degrees in special oven. The melted resin fuses to
the metal, providing a uniform, thick and durable finish.
The result is a beautiful glossy finish that is very resistant
to chemicals, wear and chipping, 3 times stronger than solvent
based paints. Powder coating simply provides a quality finish
that can be seen and felt for years.
What makes powder better?
Solvent based wet paint application
can be sensitive to weather conditions
such as temperature and humidity, often
resulting in lowered quality with runs
or orange peeled finishes. In addition
to weather, the skill of the painter can
also affect the consistency in quality.
Since powder coating uses a charged
metal attraction in the coating process
it is more likely to achieve a
consistent high quality finishing in any
weather, even with intricate parts.
Clear Coat Protection.
Powder coating can also be used as a
"clear coat" to protect metal without
adding color. Examples are polished
aluminum, stainless steel or brass
items. Clear coating resists the natural
oxidation that will occur from exposure
to the elements. A clear coat can also
be added on top of any color coat for
extra luster and depth.
What Can Be Powder Coated?
All metal objects that have an
electrostatic charge and can withstand
400F can be powder coated. And since the
powder coating process is
environmentally friendly with no solvent
emissions it's the preferred method to
finish any metal.
The fact is, the durability of powder
coating is far superior to solvent
paints. So if quality and durability are
important to you, powder coating is the
best protection for almost anything
