What is powder coating?
Gerund or present participle: powder-coating
Cover (an object) with a polyester or epoxy powder, which is then heated to fuse into a protective layer.
It's tough. It looks great. And it lasts a long, long time. In addition to being durable, powder coating is an attractive choice due to environmental advantages
Powder coating is a type of coating that is applied as a free-flowing, dry powder. The main difference between a conventional liquid paint and a powder coating is that the powder coating does not require a solvent to keep the binder and filler parts in a liquid suspension form. The coating is typically applied electrostatically and is then cured under heat to allow it to flow and form a "skin". The powder may be a thermoplastic or a thermoset polymer. It is usually used to create a hard finish that is tougher than conventional paint. Powder coating is mainly used for coating of metals, such as:
- Patio furniture
- Car parts
- Bicycle parts
- Household items
How Powder Coating Works
Powder coating is a dry finishing process that has become extremely popular since its introduction in North America over 40 years ago. Representing over 15% of the total industrial finishing market, powder is used on a wide array of products. More and more companies specify powder coatings for a high-quality, durable finish, allowing for maximized production, improved efficiencies, and simplified environmental compliance. Used as functional (protective) and decorative finishes, powder coatings are available in an almost limitless range of colors and textures, and technological advancements have resulted in excellent performance properties.
Durability of Powder Coating
Powder coating is a high-quality finish found on thousands of products you come in contact with each day. Powder coating protects the roughest, toughest machinery as well as the household items you depend on daily. It provides a more durable finish than liquid paints can offer, while still providing an attractive finish. Powder coated products are more resistant to diminished coating quality as a result of impact, moisture, chemicals, ultraviolet light, and other extreme weather conditions. In turn, this reduces the risk of scratches, chipping, abrasions, corrosion, fading, and other wear issues.
What can be Powder Coated
Powder coatings are now used on thousands of parts and products, and ongoing technological breakthroughs are expanding the list every day. Here are some of the powder coated products you see all around you:
Keep in mind “Metal Only” ALL NON-METAL ITEMS MUST BE REMOVED TO POWDER COAT.
NO~ nylon, plastic, gaskets or cast aluminum parts.
Customers will be charged an addition fee for any NON-Metal parts that have been removed to powder coat.
Sandblasting is a general term used to describe the act of propelling very fine bits of material at high-velocity to clean or etch a surface. A sandblaster shoots abrasive material at high, medium or light velocity to remove paint, dust, oil and dirt. It is used to prepare the surface for sealing or painting, and may also be used to refurbish the original appearance of surfaces.
- Easier than using chemicals or a wire brush to clean
- Can also be used to remove paint as well as rust build up
- The added roughness gives new paint or sealant a better grip on the metal
Sand is the most commonly used material. Other materials that can be used are steel grit, copper slag, walnut shells, powdered abrasives, even bits of coconut shell.
When painting, one doesn't want to trap dust, dirt, or bubbles in a previous layer of paint, or other imperfections under the new layer. By launching small bits of abrasive at the surface at a high, medium or light speed, all imperfections are knocked loose and can then be easily washed off, creating an incredibly smooth surface upon which to lay the new layer of paint. Sandblasting may also be used for such projects as cleaning the hulls of ships or large structures such as the Golden Gate Bridge.

Sandblasting is a great preparation method for Powder Coat. When powder coating, it is very important for the item you are coating to be completely clean of oils, dirt, paint, rust, corrosion, and damaged plating (zinc, nickel, chrome, etc.).
