Powder Coating

IMG_0635

Powder coating is an alternative finishing method to liquid painting, where dry powder is applied to the metal through an electrostatic process, then cured with heat in a large oven. Just like wet applied coatings, powder comes in various types such zincs, primers, enamels, epoxies, polyesters, fluoropolymers, urethanes, and more. The result is a beautiful high-quality finish with excellent corrosion resistance.

 

It is easy to see why powder coating is a popular choice across many industries including automotive, marine, construction, architecture, and residential. However, powder coating has some limitations. It can be applied to metals such as wrought iron, aluminum, and steel, as long as it can withstand high temperatures 400°+ Fahrenheit without losing its integrity. This also means non-metal accessories such as plastic or rubber must be removed from the metal beforehand. For example, tires must be dismounted from rims before sandblasting and powder coating. In addition, warping is a concern with thin metal pieces. Potential problematic substrates are chrome and galvanized surfaces. A limitation for larger items is compatible oven size. With Citrus Sandblast’s oven stretching 30 linear feet, large pieces can easily be accommodated.
