From metal sculptures and signs, to playground equipment and more, powder coating is a more even and durable finish than standard paint. The unique powder coating process of adhering colored powder to metal items electrostatically, then heating the coating to form a “skin,” ensures that the finished items are vibrant and durable.
How Does Powder Coating Work?
If you are like many people who are new to the concept of powder coating, you may be wondering, “How does powder coating work?” When a metal item is powder coated, solid pigment in the form of a dry powder is sprayed on the surface. The metal item has a positive electrical charge, and as the powder is sprayed, the powder gun gives it a mild negative electrical charge so that the powder is attracted to the metal part and adheres evenly. This surface is then heated, which causes the powder to melt and harden into a solid, finished surface. Powder coating is both stronger and more eco-friendly than paint, and lasts much longer. That is why powder coating is ideal for metal items like bicycle frames, lawn furniture, car/ATV parts, and anything else that needs to withstand the elements long-term.
