If you want to keep your metal auto parts safe, you need to protect them with a powder coating. In just a few easy steps, your pieces can be covered in a hard, durable coating that will keep them protected with an updated, restored, and refreshed look that you can enjoy for years to come. Instead of wasting your time with metal plating, you’ll want to move towards powder coating. It won’t rust, decay, or deteriorate. It’s impervious to any kind of damage or weathering. When you have a high-traffic piece, like an auto part, powder coating is the best way to keep it safe from damage. Not to mention, you can have any color or finish you want! Powder Coating by Frank T. can powder coat your auto parts quickly and efficiently.
How to Prepare Pieces for Powder Coating
Frank uses a process called sandblasting, which pushes tiny particles towards the metal with a high pressure. These particles, which are sometimes copper slag or silica crystals, scrape off any imperfections. This can include old paint, debris, oil, or residue. Sandblasting a metal piece is the best way to prepare it for powder coating because the coating needs a completely unmarred surface in order to lay evenly. Frank will also protect parts that don’t need to be powder coated using masking material. After this is complete, it’s time to move to the booth to start the coating process.
How Does Powder Coating Work?
Thermoset powder is sprayed with a spray gun at the metal piece. This powder lays evenly across the surface, creating a nice coat of any color or finish of your choosing. It’s a process that can be completed very quickly, which cannot be said about other coating techniques. Next, it gets placed in an oven set at 400 degrees. The heat cures the thermoset powder, forming a hardened surface. This chemically changes the powder. This makes it excellent for auto parts!
