Powder coating is a type of coating that is applied electrostatically as a dry powder and then cured under heat to allow the powder to form a “skin”.
Powder coating is usually used to create a hard finish that is tougher and longer lasting than conventional paint and typically used to coat metals, such as automotive fames & brackets, bicycle parts, household appliances, lawn furniture, gates and fences and much more.
From a chemical perspective, the primary difference between a conventional liquid paint and a powder coating is that a powder coating does not require a solvent to keep the binder and filler
parts in a liquid suspension form.
The powder used in the powder coating process may be a thermoplastic or a thermoset polymer with the most common polymers used being polyester, polyurethane, polyester-epoxy (known as hybrid), straight epoxy (fusion bonded epoxy) and acrylics.
Because powder coating does not have a liquid carrier, it is much easier to apply thicker coatings with minimal or no running or sagging than can be achieved with paint and other traditional liquid coatings. Additionally, powder coated items generally have fewer differences in appearance between vertically and horizontally coated surfaced.
Prior to the powder coating process, it is essential to remove all dirt, oil, grease, lubrication, metal oxides, welding scale, etc. Sandblasting is highly recommended before beginning the powder coating process.

Powder coating uses a dry coating process. It’s typically used as a finish on metal equipment.
Powder coating gets applied as a dry powder which is cured with heat. It’s a popular option for many industries due to its high-quality finishes and many advantages.
A powder-coated surface is majorly resistant to wear and tear. It also protects the surface from scratching, chipping, and fading. The surface can also withstand extreme temperatures and is resistant to corrosion.
Powder coating gives metal finishes in the architectural, industrial, and automotive industries a durable finish. This finish is typically more robust than traditional paint. They can give your surface added benefits that a paint coat can’t achieve.
Powder coating can be applied to a lot of different things. This includes medical devices, industrial parts, bicycle parts, furniture, trailers, and more.
There are two types of powder coating — thermoset and thermoplastic. A thermoplastic coating is thicker than other options, making it a good choice for auto parts and fridges. Thermoset coatings are great for areas that get exposed to high heat.
There are countless powder-coating colors to choose from. The color you choose depends on your preference and where you’ll apply the coating. Each color comes in different grades that are better suited for interior or exterior use.
First, we start by sandblasting and stripping whatever surface needs to get powder coated. The prep step is important because it ensures the powder coating lasts many years.
Then we apply the powder coat using a spray gun. The curing process begins immediately after that.

The best way to clean your item after it’s been powder coated is with a soft brush or cloth. You can wash it with a solution of mild soap and warm water. Keep harsh cleansers away from the surface since they can damage it.
Being exposed to powder coating for long periods might cause some skin irritation. It’s important to wear protective items, such as safety glasses, a mask, and gloves.
