When it comes to finishing metal products, powder coating is by far the most even, durable and eco-friendly option available.
Unless you are already in familiar with the concept of powder coating, you may not realize that you see powder-coated items every day, such as bicycle frames, playground equipment, fences, patio furniture and more.
What Exactly is Powder Coating?
If you wondering what is the powder coating process, you are not alone. In fact, most people assume that objects are painted, when they are, in fact, powder coated. The powder coating procedures may seem complicated, but it is actually a fairly quick and easy process. Basically, the metal object being coated has a positive electrical charge. When it is powder coated, it is sprayed with a special colored powder that has a negative electrical charge. This makes the powder stick to the item evenly. Then, the powder is heated, and through a chemical reaction, the powder melts to form a solid, even coating that is resistant to fading, chipping or scratching.
