Powder Coating

What is powder coating?

Powder Coating is a painting process developed in 1945 that once applied to metal creates a tough, hard protective finish. This assists in a metal’s rust and corrosion resistance. It is a rather standardized practice to powder coat most metal for architectural structures, metal furniture and transportation parts. Also, the paint is applied as a free-flowing powder and then cured by intense heat. How the paint is made, applied and cured allows the paint to be tougher than standard paints.

What can and cannot be powder coated?

Metal

All types of metal can be powder coated. The only limits are: large structures must be able to be taken apart for individual powder coating, all objects being powder coated must be able to hang up, and all metal surfaces must be clean which may require chemical bathing and/or sand blasting.

Wood & Fabric

Wood and fabric CANNOT be powder coated, having the same issue for both material types. Unfortunately, they will catch fire with the intense heat of the curing. If the powder coat is not heated directly after application, the paint will not cure and fall right off, so the heat cannot be avoided.

Plastic

From the powder coating process, all kinds of plastic can melt and therefore CANNOT be powder coated. This includes if you have some plastic attached to something metal, as that piece(s) of plastic will melt if not removed.

Preparing for powder coating

1) Identify Materials (No auto parts or wheel rims.)

    • Solid metal? If no, anything non-metal must be taken off.

    • Attached or connected to anything? Must be pre-removed and be individual metal pieces.

2) Can it Hang?

    • Everything being powder coated must be able to hang to ensure the coat fully covers the entire surface area that needs to be applied the paint.

    • We can make holes for you in most metals. However, we are not responsible if you change your mind about where the holes are made.

3) Inspect for Chemical Bath or Sand Blasting Needs

    • If the item(s) are even the slightest dusty, dirty, or oily it should be chemical bathed to allow for smooth coating.

    • When there is rust, corrosion, old paint, etc on the item(s) they should be sand blasted to maximize adhesion of the coat.

4) Note Size and Shape

    • Exact dimensions are needed to quote the gig.

    • You may email us at info@powdercoatfact.com or text us at 407-952-0862 with specifications, diagrams and/or images for faster and easier quoting.

5) Choose Color

    • We have a wide range of RAL powder coating colors from multiple providers to allow us to best fit your needs.

Process

  • Products are measured and inspected for readiness upon arrival.
  • Any chemical bathing that is needed is done to clean the metal.
  • If chemical bathed, the metal sits in a designated spot to dry for the appropriate time period.
  • The metal is hung on the chains and hooks attached along our hanging conveyor belt.
  • Moving along the conveyor belt, the metal is powder coated throughly.
  • Next, the metal immediately moves into the super hot curing booth to dry and solidify the coat.
  • As the metal reaches the end of the hanging conveyor belt, they are carefully taken off and placed in a completed area for pick up.
  • We contact you once it is completed and you are billed after the job is done.
