Powder Coat Painting

What is Powder Coating?

  • We apply powder paint to metal parts using electrostatic guns that positively charge the powder, causing it to adhere to the negatively charged grounded metal parts
  • After the powder is applied, the coated parts are transferred from the powder application station to the curing oven. The temperature and time required for curing depends on the mass and thickness of the parts
  • This process results in a finish that is extremely durable. A cured powder coated part appears to have been “dipped” in a very high gloss paint, and this finish protects the part against scratching, chipping, rusting, and contact with chemicals or weather elements
  • Powder coat finish is consistent and uniform, as the applying of powder electrostatically eliminates the risk of color running, streaking, or dripping marks on the finished product

Any Color, Texture, Finish, & Volume

  • We can accommodate any color, finish texture, and powder thickness specific to the performance spec needed for the part. Whether the powder coated part or assembly will be used indoor in a lab, enduring outdoor weather elements, or under the sea, we can produce to the required performance specs
  • We offer quick-turn color change and color matching
  • We can accommodate to any volume – No job is too big or too small
  • We have partnerships with top powder manufacturers – this allows us to accommodate both custom color and off the shelf powder needs

Advanced System & Process

  • We utilize a “Spray to Waste” application operation, with a high powder transfer efficiency to optimize cost for customers while not compromising quality
  • We powder coat in a clean room environment as the finish quality of your part is our top priority. Our application process is fully controlled and offers no opportunity for contamination
  • Our system contains a true 5-stage wash system and automated curing oven, as well as energy efficient motors and burners to optimize cost for customers

Quality Control Excellence
