Powder coatings have become the finish of choice in industries ranging from heavy equipment to electronics and from outdoor recreational products to appliances.
Powder coating is a type of coating that is applied as a free-flowing, dry powder. Powder coating provides an attractive and durable finish, offering excellent resistance to corrosion, heat, impact, and abrasion. The coating is typically applied electrostatically with a spray gun, and is then cured under heat to allow it to flow and form a "skin". Most electrostatically sprayed powder coatings are given a negative charge out of the powder gun, while the part itself is grounded. This ground provides the opposite charge and attracts the powder to the part. To obtain the final coating the powder coated items are placed in an oven and heated to temperatures that range from 320 to 410 degrees F.
Coating quality will only be as good as the quality of the surface to which it is anchored. Just one of the many reasons we fully sandblast every item to be powdercoated, to leave the optimal surface for the powder to stick to. This ensures the longevity of every part that we powder coat.
