What is Powder Coating?

Powder coating is a durable, attractive, long lasting finish that when applied correctly can give years of protection to metal components. It is used as an alternative to paint.

The powder is applied electrostatically to a suitably prepared metal surface. The electrostatic process ensures an even film thickness all over the component even on very complex shapes which cannot be achieved with wet paint. Often a zinc rich primer can be used prior to coating to give a greater corrosion protection.
