Steelhead Powder Coating Offers Alternative to Painting
Your next time one of your projects requires a protective coating, consider powder coating over traditional paint. You might be surprised by its versatility and variety of color options! Most people think powder coating is just for industrial projects, but we’ve coated everything from vehicle rims & guard rails to entire spiral staircases. Size is not an issue! Our Salt Lake City facility houses a giant 10’ X 25’ oven that can handle just about any project you can think of. There are a host of reasons why powder coating is superior to paint, so read on to learn more!
The Benefits of Powder Coating Over Painting
Perhaps the greatest benefit of powder coating is the durability it offers. Powder-coated metals are more resilient to chipping, impacts, chemicals, and abrasions than paint. They are also more resistant to rust and sun damage, which is ideal if your assets will be located outdoors. Paint can become flimsy, weak and rusty over time. With powder coating, you don’t have to worry about the color fading or flaking off. Here at Steelhead, we offer powder coating in thousands of colors and textures, many of which are hard to find in paint options. You may be surprised to learn that, unlike paint, powder coating is also eco-friendly! Being solvent-free and lacking volatile organic compounds (VOCs) means powder coating pollutes less than paint. Powder coating isn’t just better for the Earth; it’s also safer to store and apply. Because it is not flammable and doesn’t emit VOCs, it is less likely to cause respiratory issues and other health problems. There are nearly endless uses for powder coating, including:
• Stadium seats
• Gardening equipment
• Kitchen mixers
• Car wheels or rims
• And more!
Powder Coating Application Process
When you need superior performance from your metal project, it makes sense to go with powder coating over the traditional wet paint option. The application process of powder coating is much different than painting methods. The powder coating process breaks down into the following steps.
