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:
|high-gloss or semi-gloss||impact|
|electrical insulation||chemical action|
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.
