Looking for a protective metal coating that’s also attractive and comes in a variety of colors and finishes? Powder coatings is an excellent option for automotive components and many other uses.
OUR POWDER COATING PROCESS
WHAT IS POWDER COATING?
In the powder coating process, we use a sprayer to apply dry powder to a surface. This powder is made up of pigments, resins, and other chemicals and is electrostatically charged, allowing it to stick to grounded surfaces. Once heated in an oven, the powder cures to form a strong, durable coating.
Advantages of Powder Coating
Available with a variety of color and finish options, including matte, glossy, textured, and smooth.
It resists cracking, chipping, and peeling much better than traditional paint.
Spray application and heat curing allow for uniform coverage.
First, the item or component is cleaned and prepared so that the coating can adhere evenly. This stage may include media blasting to remove rust, old paint, etc.
Powder Coating Application
Once clean, the item is hung in a designated spray area, and the coating is applied as an electrostatically-charged dry powder.
In the final step, the coated item is placed in an oven. The powder is baked onto the surface for a durable protective finish. With some materials and coatings, we can use UV light in the curing process in place of heat.
