Metals that are powder coated can last thousands of hours in durability testing.
The various types of metals found in nature, along with the alloys man has created from combining them, helped shape modern society. From everyday eating utensils to awe-inspiring skyscrapers, metals and alloys
form an integral part of our lives. This reliance has meant that we subject these materials to conditions that cause their demise in numerous ways. The most physically apparent is corrosion.
One of the most common tests conducted on metals and their alloys is the salt-spray test. This controlled test simulates the corrosion resistance of coated and uncoated metals when subjected to a five-percent salt solution. If this doesn’t sound like much, consider that seawater averages around two to three percent. Coated metals typically fare better than uncoated metals; among them, the most resilient are those that have been powder coated. In salt-spray tests, super durable powder coating techniques have enabled metal components to remain unfazed after 2,000 to 3,000 hours in the chamber.
