Powder Coating

Powder coating is an environmentally safe process for applying a durable, long lasting finish on metal without the use of harsh chemicals and fumes. Fine particles of pigment are electrostatically charged and sprayed onto electrically ground parts - then baked in a curing oven to produce a finished product that is smooth and long lasting. There are many types  of powder available, depending on the material being coated.

Different types of powder include:

Epoxy - Mainly applied for exterior usage where corrosion is a problem.

Polyester - Used for ultraviolet protection with a smooth, glossy finish and is also good for exterior use.

Hybrids - Low cost polyester/epoxy blends alternative.

TGIC - Outdoor, weatherproofing applications.

Acrylic - Produces a smooth, high-gloss finish.

Textures - Specialty products used to gve a texture finish.

Old World Finished - Makes new look old or weathered.
