What is powder coating?
Powder coating is the process of spraying a thermoset powder onto a metal surface. This powder is then heated to high temperatures until it melts. At melting point, a chemical reaction occurs, where the molecules of the coating are forever altered to form a hard, durable surface. It isn’t vulnerable to rust, and it will never warp at high temperatures. Powder coatings are resistant to all scratches, dents, and damages. This process works fantastically for car parts, boat parts, fences, outdoor furniture, and more. The coating can be any color, any finish, and wrapped around any shape.
What is the powder coating process?
First, the surface is cleaned and prepared for coating. This often includes sandblasting, which is a process that shoots tiny particles at a high speed onto the surface to wipe away any impurities. If the surface has old paint, sandblasting can completely remove it, making it far more effective than power washing. Sandblasting also removes any oils or residue, like rust. Once the surface has been completely cleaned, it’s ready for application. Using a spray gun, the metal is coated via electrostatic deposition. Finally, the project will be heated in a 400-degree oven, which seals the coating in place. It’s simple, effective, and creates lasting results.
