What is Powder Coating?

Powder Coating, also referred to as “dry painting,” is the method of applying a protective color finish to a wide variety of products. Powder Coating makes use of pigment and resin that are statically charged and sprayed onto a surface. The charged powder particles adhere to the electrically grounded surfaces and then are cured into the finished product in a curing oven.

Benefits of Powder Coating

You may be wondering what is the benefit of powder coating as opposed to other product finishes. Powder coating provides an environmentally friendly, protective coating that improves product life and appearance. Once the part is powder coated, it is more resistant to chipping, scratching, and fading.

Another benefit of powder coating is that you can choose your color selection! If you’re interested in branding your colors or just standing out, powder coating comes in almost any color you could imagine. Along with colors another nice feature is texture options.

What Products can Benefit from Powder Coating?

There is almost no limit to what can be powder coated. If the surface is metal it can be powder coated.
