FAQ - Frequently Asked Questions


What Is Powder Coating?

The powder coating process uses a solvent free dry mix of plastic resins, pigments and fillers that melt and fuse together when heated. The solid particles of coating are electro statically charged in a spray gun and carried by low velocity air to the surface of the piece to be coated. The electrostatic charge holds the powder particles in place while the part is cured in a 400-degree oven. The heat of the oven causes a chemical reaction to occur and the powder to cure, creating a highly durable finish.

The Benefits of Powder Coating

Environmentally Friendly Process Powder coating is an environmentally friendly process unlike solvent-based wet paint systems. With EPA regulations growing ever stricter, powder coating is fast becoming the technology of choice. Since the powder coating process does not use solvents in any way, VOC emission problems are eliminated.

Extremely Durable

Powder Coatings resist cracking and peeling and are extremely abrasion, corrosion and chemical resistant. The performance characteristics of powder coating match or exceed the characteristics achieved from conventional solvent-based coatings.


With powder coating, your imagination is your only limit. Apply a textured coating to the handle of an existing product to give it a more reliable grip. Provide UV coating for outdoor furniture to make your product stand the heat of summer. The options and applications for powder coating are almost staggering.

Expand your inventory by providing your current products in color or with texture. Powder coating is available in almost any color available which can easily enhance the appearance of your current line, whether it be metallic vent fan covers or stamped metal toy cars. Don't fall behind the competition, provide superior products that look superior.

Sandblasting ‘etches’ the surface of the metal, creating a solid mechanical bond adhesion during the curing process. It also cleanses the metal. We use very fine angular aluminum oxide media because it gives the best results for powder coating adhesion. Picture in your mind that the type of etch this media leaves behind would be similar to ‘sharp peaks (hills) and valleys’.
Glass beading uses a round glass media that ‘pocks’ the surface other than impinging the surface. This kind of media is used more for aesthetic purposes than functional uses. Glass bead media does not provide the best ‘anchor tooth’ for best powder coating adhesion. Glass beading a surface (especially aluminum) reflects the light to your eyes better, and makes metal appear whiter or brighter.
