Powder CoatingPowder coating is an advanced process of electro–statically applying powder consisting of finely ground resin and pigment to any surface (including virtually all metals) that can withstand a temperature of 400° F. The coated item is then placed in a curing oven where the powder "melts" to the surface resulting in a high quality, long lasting finish.
Powder - Coated Light Metal Structures
We recommed as a standard to powder-coat every metal construction, either it's a metal gate, steel canopy, patio roof, carport or whatever the light-structure metal application.
Items that are powder coated last longer because the finish is far more resistant to scratching, chipping, harsh chemicals, fading, rusting and wearing than other finishes. Powder coating doesn't last forever, but usually lasts many times longer than any other coating. It also is usually a much thicker coating than you would obtain with paint.
The key to ensuring a beautiful high quality finish is the preparation and cleaning of the item. Thackers accomplish a perfect clean using various methods such as sandblasting, degreasing and/or chemical stripping. Once cleaned, the powder coating is applied using a special gun that gives the powder an electrical charge as it is sprayed onto the item to be coated. The item is then cured in an oven until the coating is bonded and fused into a smooth coating.
