Powder Coating Services
Powder coating is a dry finishing process, using finely ground particles of pigment and resin which are electrostatically charged and sprayed onto a part to be coated. The parts to be coated are electrostatically grounded so that the charged powder particles projected at them adhere to the parts and are held there until it melts and is fused into a smooth coating in the curing oven. The result is a uniform, durable, high quality finish that is also environmentally friendly.
“It looks like paint but it acts like armor” states the Powder Coating Institute (PCI) of this ubiquitous surfacing technique. Powder coating is a highly durable, decorative and long lasting finish applied to products of nearly every sort for the consumer and industry alike. It can come in virtually any color or finish, matte or smooth, is rust-free, scratch resistant and ecologically friendly. The powder coating process uses a solvent free mix of plastic resins, pigments, and fillers that melt and fuse together when heated. The solid particles of coating are electrostatically charged in a spray gun and carried by low velocity air to the surface of the piece to be coated. The electrostatic charge holds the powder particles in place while the part is cured in a 400 degree oven. The heat of the oven causes a chemical reaction to occur and the powder to cure, creating a highly durable finish.
Any metal object that can hold an electrostatic charge and withstand the heat of the curing process can be powder coated. Powder can be applied to intricate surfaces and still maintain a uniform finish across the entire piece. Resistant to chipping, and fading, colors of a powder coated item will remain true for many years. High gloss and low gloss finishes, even metallic and clear finishes are available.
The performance characteristics of powder coating match or exceed the characteristics achieved from conventional solvent based coatings. Powder coating provides an extremely durable finish and has bonding capabilities superior to traditional wet paint. In addition it has excellent chemical resistancy.
we can powder coat any part big or small. We offer colors ranging from a flat color or wild intricate candies, pearls, metallic and clear coats. All parts receive degreasing and phosphate rinse pretreatment prior to coating to ensure good corrosion protection and adhesion. We have hundreds of colors available, textures, wrinkles, hammer-tones, glossy, semi-gloss, and flat finishes. We can custom match any color in ten working days.
