Powder Coating is truly superior to traditional liquid paint applications. It offers finishes that are long-lasting, durable, and environmentally friendly. Powder coating is already found on thousands of products and colours that you come in contact with every day. Powder coating protects the roughest, toughest machinery as well as the household parts that you depend on daily. Thousands of different kinds of parts and products are now powder coated. Examples include dryer drums, refrigerator liners, hospital beds, metal furniture, electrical cabinets, lighting fixtures, power saws, farm implements, curtain rods, ceiling fans, light truck bodies, small under hood parts, bicycle frames, and tackle boxes.
Why Powder Coat?
Powder Coating provides a very durable baked-on finish that remains smooth, easy to clean, and it contains none of the solvents or toxic byproducts of traditional liquid paints. The final product is highly resistant to most chemicals, brake fluid, acids, and salt, yet it demonstrates surface properties that can be as much as ten times more durable than ordinary paints, and can withstand temperatures of up to 800 degrees F. More and more finishing engineers for all kinds of products have switched from liquid finishing to powder coating as a way to produce a high quality and durable finish while maximizing production, cutting costs, and complying with increasingly stringent environmental regulations.

Any industrial product benefits from the advantages of powder coating: improved appearance, exceptional toughness and durability, scratch-resistant, high quality, colorful, versatile, and long lasting. In addition to a wide range of colors and textures, an almost infinite range of properties can be built into the finish. Examples include resistance to ultra-violet rays, enhanced durability, and better corrosion resistance. Unlike liquid paint, no solvents are used, so only minimal amounts of VOC’s, if any, are released into the air. The powder coating process is environmentally friendly and virtually pollution-free.
