Powder Coatings resist cracking, peeling, and chipping. Powder coat is abrasion, corrosion and chemical resistant. This does not mean that it will not crack, peel, chip, scratch, or corrode. It just means that it is more resistant than some other finishes. There has been a misconception that powder coat is crack, chip, peel, abrasion, corrosion, and chemical proof. That is sadly not the case. Powder coating is stronger than paint but given the environment it is subjected to, it can only resist so much.
Also keep in mind the environment that your product is subjected to (for example, a beach front resort). Salt from the ocean and sand can slowly erode the finish on furniture. The exposed areas can rust and spread. It is important to seal the exposed area to prevent further corrosion.
Powder coating is durable and long-lasting in part due to how it is applied. Unlike paint, powder coat is applied as a dry powder with a small electrostatic charge that holds the powder to the metal. It is then baked in an oven which caused the coating to “gel” (or melt) into a smooth, consistent, smooth coating.
We offer a variety of color options to help enhance your design and our team is able to create specialty finishes with the durability of powder coating. Wood grain and hammer effects are some of the choices available. This will create a beautiful effect and last for years. In addition to effects, we also have color match capabilities. Below, are our standard finish color options.
