What is Powder Coating and how does it work?

Powder Coating is a free-flowing powder similar to baking flour that is applied to metal parts using electricity then oven cured. We use a specialized spray gun that applies an electrostatic charge to the powder particles, which during coating are attracted to the grounded part. The parts are then moved into an oven where the powder melts and cures, resulting in a coating that is resistant to most chemicals, weather, and is much more durable than conventional paints.



What colors are available?

We have thousands of colors in many textures and gloss levels available. Because of the custom nature of our business, we stock more colors than anyone else in town. We have a huge selection of color samples right in our showroom. Make sure to check out the picture gallery for ideas and references.

Why is Powder Coating better?

Powder coating is more resistant to chipping, scratching, and fading than any other metal finish. Car enthusiasts, professional fabricators, and large manufacturers agree that powder coating is the ideal finish for parts due to its durability and flexibility. It's tough. It looks great. And it lasts a long, long time.

Powder coating is also an environmentally friendly process that does not require the use of harmful solvents like those found in liquid paint, virtually eliminating any waste into the atmosphere.

What can be powder coated?

Any metal part (steel, aluminum, brass, copper, etc) capable of holding an electrical charge and withstanding 400 degrees Fahrenheit can be powder coated. Wheels, gates, slot machines, intake manifolds and patio furniture are just some of the thousands of items normally powder coated.

How big of a part can be coated?

Our biggest oven can handle parts up to 25 feet long and 8 feet wide. We normally powder coat items as big as car frames and RV gates, and as small as bolts and fender washers. We are able to maintain a high level or productivity by using multiple booths and ovens, so no job is too big or too small.
