Powder Coating

Powder coating is a high quality metal finishing technique used in dozens of different industries. CustomPic6There's likely something you've used today that's been powder coated; like your appliances or your patio furniture. Things are moving today in such a way that the steel used for bridges, pavement, marine structures and parking structures will be using powder coated rebar and girders because of its long life span, corrosion resistance and of course it prevents rust. But what powder coating is does a lot to explain why powder coating is the finish of choice for so many people and companies.

Powder Coating is a lot like what it sounds like, a dry plastic powder is sprayed out of a powder coating unit using compressed air, binds to the work piece electrostatically and is then literally melted to create a thick skin that hardens and covers the metal part preventing rust and wear, while also looking good. Now there's more to it than blowing pulverized plastic at some metal hoping that it sticks and then baking it for a while.

Production

ProductionPicOur history doing large batch oven runs has given us unique insight into how to efficiently keep product moving from fabrication, to sandblasting, and then powder coating without using a fully automated paint line. We have the tools to fabricate anything you need, from simple stuff like cutting plate steel to size and drilling some holes in it to complex frames. After it's made we clean the product down in our sandblasting room to prevent rust and promote good powder adhesion, then of course we coat it any color or texture they make or upon special request even do some more complex paint jobs like two coats, multiple colors or fade jobs. From design to done we can do it all!

Custom

CustomPic4Doing custom powder coating jobs is a favorite part about being the type of small business that we are. Taking something old and giving it new life or creating something one of a kind and giving it a stunning finish is something we genuinely enjoy. And I think its fair to say we have more experience with multi-color coating, additives, and layering than anyone around. We've gained a fair bit of knowledge making our own high end lawn decorations like our butterfly and dragonfly lines, like the one to the left here. So whether it's something old you'd like refinished or an original idea you'd like to see get a custom finish, we can help your project look great and last for decades.

Paint vs Powder

powdercoatingPicPowder coating is among finest methods of metal coating in the world today and it's everywhere because it's both beautiful and durable. Your modern dishwasher for instance the shell was electrostatically powder coated and the racks were electrostatically dipped in a fluidized pool. The calipers on high end brake pads, tribo electrically coated. Your patio furniture, powder coated by a corona or electrostatic system like the one we use here. Modern air compressors are run through expansive automated powder coating systems. The days of volatile organic compounds (VOC), and liquid carriers in metal painting are slowly fading away and making way for a cleaner, safer and superior method.
