A More Durable Surface than Paint

Powder coating metal surfaces provides more resistance to chipping, scratching, and other wear than painting does. This is because the powder coat is thermally bonded to the metal during the curing (or baking) process. Powder coatings can also be applied in much thicker layers than paint can, which provides even more protection.

Powder coated surfaces are much more resistant to damage caused by impacts, moisture, chemicals, ultraviolet light, and weather than painted surfaces.

About the Powder Coating Process

Powder coating is a dry finishing process where a fine powder, consisting of pigment and resin particles that are electro-statically charged, is sprayed onto the surface of the metal and then baked on. The particles are thermally bonded to the metal during curing.

Items to be powder coated are pre-treated, which may include this include chemical cleaning, media blasting, degreasing, and/or conversion coatings, to ensure long-lasting adhesion and superior protection.

The curing, or baking, process melts the particles together and fuses them into a solid coating, once hardened, that is both durable and decorative.
