What is Powder Coating?
Introduced in North America more than 30 years ago, powder coating has become the fastest growing finishing technology in use today. Powder is applied electrostatically by charging the powder particles which are then applied directly to the grounded metal surface. The charged powder adheres to the surface until it enters a curing oven. There the powder melts, bonds and cures to the desired surface resulting in a coating which provides a durable, high quality, uniform finish.This process is mainly used for the coating of metals and creates a hard finish that is tougher than conventional paint. And since powder coating is dry paint containing no solvents, it is safe for the environment.
Why powder coat your Furniture, and Home Accessories?
Powder coating is cost effective and is superior to most liquid coatings. Powder coating is tough. It won't chip, crack, or peel. Powder coating is extremely resistant to abrasion, corrosion, and chemical degrading. Powder coating adheres better than conventional paint does. Powder coating has superior weatherability. Powder coating is attractive coming in a wide array of colors and textures. Powder coating is easy to clean and maintain.
Here's a partial list of some items that can be powder coated:
How do I maintain my Powder Coated Metal Furniture and Home Accessories ?
Maintaining that great powder coated look is easy. Using a neutral detergent, just wash the coating down with soapy water and rinse off with clean water. Regular washing every 6 months under normal conditions, and more often in more severe marine and industrial applications will keep your powder coating job looking like new. Do not use harsh abrasives or chemical degreasers.
How do I remove mild scratches and marks from my Powder Coated Products ?
In the same manner that you would remove mild scratches and markings from any automotive finish. The reccomended process is to use a mild buffing solution or wax compound. These can be found online at places like www.autozone.com -or- www.pepboys.com.
