What is Powder Coating?

Powder coating is a resin based product with different ingredients added for various applications – polyester, epoxy, urethane, or a hybrid mixture. Each offers a unique combination of desirable characteristics:

Providing: Resistance to:
durability wear
resilience corrosion
high-gloss or semi-gloss impact
electrical insulation chemical action
toughness weather

We also offer a moisture-resistant PLASTIC Coating – Great for items with lots of outdoor exposure.

Why should I choose Powder Coating?

If you want a finer quality, longer lasting color finish than what you can get with ordinary liquid paint. Powder coating is the way to go.

Today almost 15% of all protective coatings applied today are powder coating and that number continues to grow. Consumers have grown to expect and request the quality and durability of Powder Coating.

Does Powder Coating prevent rust?

Powder coating is durable and very long-lasting depending on its environment and how the items are used. It is not, however, a rust preventive. Pre-treatment and/or primer coating is helpful for longer coating life.

Can galvanized metal be powder coated?

Yes! Certain pre-treatment or “out-gassing” is required before coating, but both hot dip and electro galvanized materials can be powder coated.

One thought on “FAQ

  1. It’s good to know that pre-treatment an/or primer coating is helpful to prevent rust. I’m having some structural steel powder coated but also want to avoid rust. I live in a very humid beach town, so rust can occur quite easily if one is not careful.
