All About Powder Coating

What is Powder Coating?

Powder coating is a method of applying a decorative finish to a wide range of materials and products that are used by both industries and consumers. The powder used for the process is a mixture of finely ground particles of pigments and resin, which is sprayed onto a surface to be coated. The charged powder particles adhere to the electrically grounded surfaces. At that point the product is heated and fused into a smooth coating in a curing oven. The result is a uniform, durable, high-quality, and attractive finish.

 

What are some advantages of using Powder Coating?

Powder coating gives consumers one of the most economical, longest-lasting, and most color-durable quality finishes available.
 
 Powder coated surfaces are more resistant to chipping, scratching, fading, and wearing than other finishes. Color selection is virtually unlimited with high and low gloss, metallic, and clear finishes available. Colors stay bright and vibrant longer. Texture selections range from smooth surfaces to a wrinkled or matte finish, and rough textures designed for hiding surface imperfections.

 

What kinds of materials can be powder coated?
Any objects made from metal (aluminum, steel, brass, copper, bronze, titanium, magnesium, etc.) can be powder coated.

 

Can powder coating colors be color matched to other colors?

While powder can't be mixed, it can be tinted by using pearls or dyes in a top or clear coat . There are thousands of colors available in powder; solid tones, pearls, metal flakes and candy colors. We can usually match just about any color, and there are also clear powder coatings.
