Over the years, powder coating has significantly increased in popularity, and it’s not difficult to see why. This great method for customizing metal pieces, from trailer hitches to patio furniture, comes with several advantages over other finishing techniques that don’t offer the same range of protection and customization. This process is more affordable than other options while also being an all-around better choice for many different reasons.
There are many different ways to coat metal, but none of them are as resistant to corrosion and damage as powder coating. A durable outer layer is created when metal is powder coated, protecting it from rust, corrosion, and degradation that is caused by moisture and other problematic atmospheric conditions. This added durability makes powder coating the best choice for many different uses, such as on boats and for restoring and protecting vintage metal pieces and family heirlooms. This added durability even protects outdoor pieces such as patio furniture and fencing that are regularly exposed to the elements, keeping them intact for years.
It can seem like powder coating doesn’t have much of an edge over other forms of customization, like industrial painting. However, powder coating can be done in any color, any shade, and it has several different finishing techniques that can create a totally unique look for every single piece. This gives it a lot more variability than other methods, ensuring a truly custom aesthetic. This can be great when you’re looking for a really specific look—useful for custom jobs on car rims or metal furniture such as an industrial coffee table.
Something a lot of people don’t know about powder coating is that it’s environmentally friendly. A constant environmental threat of industrial paint is that it has volatile organic compounds (VOCs) that pollute the air and damage the ozone layer. Powder coating has negligible VOCs and no hazardous waste, making it significantly more eco-friendly than other metal finishing techniques. Its negligible environmental impact makes it a great choice for anyone looking to customize and protect their metal pieces.
