Frequently Asked Questions

Below, are the answers to several FAQs regarding powder coating and the services Powder Coaters provide:

What is powder coating?

The powder coating process uses a solvent free dry 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.

Why powder coat?

Why not? Powder coating produces a high specification coating which is relatively hard, abrasion resistant (depending on the specification) and tough. Thin powder coatings can be bent but this is not recommended for exterior applications. The choice of powder coating colours and finishes is almost limitless. When powder coated items are installed without damage to the powder coating, and they are maintained regularly, they should be relatively permanent. Correctly applied coating, although not metallurgically bonded to the metal, will not crack, chip or peel as with conventional paint films.
