Powder Coating advantages for metal fabrication

Metal fabrication finishes took a giant leap forward in the 1960’s. Scientists perfected a finishing process called powder coating that revolutionized the metal product industry. Immediately, the benefits of powder coating in metal fabrication became obvious. Advantages of powder coating over liquid paint and metal plating gave metal fabricators and product manufacturers a leading edge over antiquated finishes.

Powder coating is a higher method of applying a decorative and protective cover to almost any type of metal. The powder contains a mixture of finely ground particles of pigment and resins, this powder is sprayed onto the surface to be coated.

The powder particles adhere to the electrically grounded surfaces until the powder is heated and fused into a homogeneous coating in the oven. The result is a uniform, durable, high quality and amazing finish.

Below you can check some of the advantages of powder coating in metal finishing:

  • Durability

Powder coating provides to the project the most longest lasting and most color-durable quality finishes available for metals. Surfaces that received the powder coating process are more resistant to chipping, scratching, fading, and wearing than other finishes.

  • Variability

Powder coating has a huge color selection, with flat, satin, gloss, high gloss, metallic, candies, clear, iridescent, fluorescent, wrinkle, hammer tone, and glitter finishes. Colors stay bright and vibrant longer. Texture selections range from smooth surfaces to wrinkled or matte finishes, and rough textures designed for hiding surface imperfections.

  • Environmentally friendly

Powder Coating is also safe for our environment. Since liquid finishes contain solvents which have pollutants known as volatile organic compounds (VOC’s) and powder coating contains no solvents and release negligible amounts, if any, VOC’s into the atmosphere.

  • Corrosion Resistant

Rusting is always a problem for metal fabricated products. Outdoor pieces get pounded by rain, snow, sleet and hail. Indoor products also suffer corrosion through high humidity and water exposure. Because powder coated equipment is so thoroughly and evenly covered, there is no opportunity for moisture to seep through to metal pores. Without question, corrosion resistance is a chief benefit gained by powder coating.

  • Economy

Another main benefit of powder coating compared to alternatives is economy. Most powder coating jobs take less time than painting or plating. That results in fewer labor costs, and savings get passed on to the user. It also allows powder coating processes more profits in their work. Again, powder coating is a win-win for both customer and fabricator.
