What is Powder Coating?
Powder coating is a solvent-free combination of organic and inorganic materials applied by spraying an air/powder mixture through a special electrically charged nozzle onto a grounded part. The part is then placed in an oven where the powder melts, flows and cures to form a durable and attractive finish.

Is powder coating durable?
Powder coating gives consumers, businesses and industry one of the most economical, long-lasting and most color-durable quality finishes available. The result is an attractive, durable, high-quality finish.
Can one part be multiple colors?
Yes, by powdering one color at a time and masking off the places that are different colors, we can easily give the part multiple colors. There may be an additional setup charge associated with each of the different colors you choose. However, if the part can be dismantled into smaller pieces, then it would make powdering it alternate colors a much more practical task, and, the overall quality will be much more consistent than the masking method.
Do you perform small custom jobs?
Yes, small jobs are handled with the same care and level of service as any other job. We can handle a large variety of sizes and quantities.
What colors are available?
Hundreds! And there are also texturizing options as well. Contact your sales representative to learn more about what colors are available.
Why should I choose powder coating over wet spray painting?

Powder coating provides better mechanical properties than liquid paints and is an environmentally responsible option. Also, powder coating is ten-times more durable than ordinary paint.
