about powder coating

what is powder coating?

Powder coating is a type of coating that is applied as a dry, free-flowing powder to various surfaces, typically metal. It is a popular finishing process for various products, from household appliances and automotive parts to outdoor furniture and industrial machinery. The powder coating process involves the application of electrostatically charged powder particles onto the object's surface, followed by curing in an oven.

reasons to choose powder coating vs. paint:


Powder coating is known for its durability and resistance to chipping, scratching, and fading. It provides a tough and long-lasting finish that can withstand harsh environmental conditions, making it suitable for outdoor applications.

environmentally friendly

Powder coating is considered more environmentally friendly than traditional liquid paint. It typically contains little to no volatile organic compounds (VOCs), which are harmful air pollutants. The process also produces less waste since unused powder can be collected and reused.

efficiency and cost-effectiveness

Powder coating is an efficient process that can quickly cover a large surface area. It reduces the need for multiple coats, and the overspray can be collected and reused, minimizing waste. While the initial equipment setup for powder coating may be more expensive, it can be cost-effective in the long run due to reduced material and labor costs.

uniform finish

Powder coating provides a more uniform finish than liquid paint. The electrostatic application ensures an even distribution of the powder particles, resulting in a consistent and smooth coating without streaks or runs.

variety of colors and finishes

Powder coating offers a wide range of colors, textures, and finishes, including glossy, matte, and metallic options. This versatility allows for customization and can meet various aesthetic requirements.

chemical resistance

Powder-coated surfaces are generally more resistant to chemicals and corrosive substances than traditional painted surfaces. This makes them suitable for applications where exposure to chemicals is a concern.

faster curing time

Powder coating typically has a faster curing time than liquid paint. The curing process in an oven takes minutes rather than the longer drying times associated with liquid paint, improving production efficiency.


Overall, the choice between powder coating and liquid paint depends on the application's specific requirements, but powder coating is often preferred. We’d love to talk through your needs and help determine the best approach.
